So the other night we were discussing Trump’s threat that he may have “taped” his meeting with Comey. My clever husband pointed out that they were having dinner. So he dubbed the caper “Operation Green Bean”, since the “bug” may have been hidden in the vegetable portion of their repast. I about died laughing! Should be a Saturday Night Live skit……………………….
At the urging of a British cousin who lives in Brittany, I listened to an interview with this guy Celente (of Trends Journal) the other day on You Tube.
A few of his observations did ring true: Re Trumps’s nepotism; our military-industrial complex and their pointless recent bombing in Syria, as well as multiple violations of international law historically; our awful unwavering support of Israel’s apartheid state.
But Celente is a hypocrite when it comes to Trump. He apparently supported Trump’s fiscal positions as “being strong for the economy, effective for building corporate profits, the markets and tax cuts” (well, that’s what’s important I guess – for the rich people Celente rails against, anyway – wait a minute, what?). Then he calls Trump an “arrogant, empty-headed, spoiled-brat, and a narcissist who shoots his big, fat mouth off and gets other people to do his dirty work”. If he believes any of the latter is true, how could he possibly ever support him? Or did he just discover these ever-obvious realities about Trump? If so, not a word coming out of his mouth can be trusted.
With regard to North Korea I agree we should have been having an open dialogue with them all along. Unfortunately what we currently face is the terrifying reality of two governments being led by immature, irrational, and insecure lunatics – so who would be having these dialogues is the crucial question!?
But I completely disagree with Clemente’s claim that we have instigated Un’s aggressive behavior by staging naval maneuvers in the area. Un’s constant militaristic posturing and build-up of threatening weaponry is scaring the bejeezus out of Japan and other allies in the Pacific area (and now even us folks living near Seattle). What are we supposed to do pray tell? Just sit around and keep our fingers crossed that he doesn’t get pissed off because someone looks cross-eyed at him, or cooks him a bad meal? This guy murders anyone he wants, including his family, with complete impunity – are we really supposed to assume he’s someone who will behave rationally? And he is certainly not saying “please stop doing that” in response to our naval presence in the area, as Clement claims!

“Consider the audacity of Secretary of State Tillerson. He has spent the week prior to his visit to Moscow supporting incredible lies and false allegations that Assad of Syria used chemical weapons with Russia’s permission…”
“The Russian leaders, who, unlike the Western liars, speak the truth……..”
“Maybe Tillerson is going to ask for asylum and get on the winning side.”
– Which “winning side” would that be??
“Washington is so arrogant and lost in its own hubris, that Washington does not understand that the years of clear as crystal lies about Russia and Russian intentions and deeds have convinced Russia that Washington is preparing the populations of the United States and Washington’s captive peoples in West and East Europe, Canada, Australia, and Japan for a US pre-emptive nuclear strike against Russia. Published US war plans against China have convinced China of the same. When Russia hears these flagrant, blatant, obvious lies, Russia understands that Washington intends a preemptive nuclear attack on Russia. China has reached the same conclusion.”
– This is dangerous and inflammatory nonsense! What Kool-Aid is this guy drinking?
“What are Russia and China doing? Are they begging for mercy? No. They are preparing to destroy the evil West, a collection of liars and war criminals, the like of which the world has never previously experienced.”
– Was this git born yesterday? I can think of many, many hundreds of war criminals that the world “has previously experienced“, and I was only born in 1948.
“Putin has shown amazing patience with Washington’s lies and provocations, but he cannot risk Russia by trusting Washington, whom no one can trust.”
– I can’t decide whether to throw up or die laughing at this one!
