Entertainment for Armageddon: Jon Snow fights Whites, Sessions fights blacks, and “[Nuclear] Winter is coming”

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is going to purge the scourge of racism from our higher institutions of higher learning.

Why? “If American colleges were any whiter Jon Snow would build a wall to protect us from them.”

Yeah, I know, it’s neither North Korea, Russia, or even nuclear.

 

Therefore we give you Trump’s North Korea bluster via @serafinowicz

The Secret to Happy Russians

“Американские СМИ раздули скандал из-за фотографий встречи Лаврова и Трампа
Россия и США сделали шаг к снятию напряженности — так в Москве и в Вашингтоне оценивают итоги переговоров Сергея Лаврова с американским президентом и госсекретарем. Обсуждалось создание зон безопасности в Сирии и подготовка встречи Владимира Путина и Дональда Трампа в июле на саммите G20.”

They are having way too much fun with this. They keep putting “Yankees” higher and higher in the stories. [США]

Nice comparison of Merkel/Trump v. Lavrov/Trump:

in any language

You don’t need to know a syllable of Russian to get this “report.” I’ve never seen Russians this expressive.

 

Nazis Make a Lot of Sense – Military Theory Part II

gorka


We need brute force to keep our drones. We certainly cannot lose them to the enemy. For our drones we need Germany. 

We are not leaving Germany to chance.

Oh, say, you know who’s good at that?

Nazis.


Yesterday’s forward.com article written by Lili Bayer was featured on today’s Democracy Now! and Forward reporter Larry Cohler-Esses made a surprisingly devastating case that Sebastian Gorka, Trump’s “chief counter-terrorism consultant,” is a pledged member of the Hungary -based, Nazi Vitézi Rend group founded in World War II. (Gorka is a Hungarian national who only received US citizenship five years ago.)

And I’m saying it makes sense from the military perspective. In the cold, dead, Machiavelli mindset it makes perfect sense to pack Nazis into every government crack you can find. Through the lens of this murderous, greedy, necrophiliac Pentagon pestilence America has nourished for a century, it makes perfect sense.

In fact, from the perspective of the Pentagon’s Rumsfeld/Cheney “burrowed” warmongering staff,* not having Nazis would be the nonsensical choice.

These guys are playing the long game and we have been letting them by following their shiny Strawmen, of whom Trump is, in many ways, just the worst of the lot in a long line of anger-deflecting, useful idiots in our puppet regime.

And the Masters of War know how weak he is; they wanted him weak. And they know that he won’t last, and they don’t want him to. They’re almost done, anyway. So while we’re watching 24-hour cable news with ads from Boeing because God knows Jake Tapper fans are huge Boeing customers another group of our official mouthpieces whose paychecks are paid by their advertisers, like Boeing and Walmart and MasterCard and KFC, whose interests lie in anything but an informed public and whose business plans are based on ratings, where the only thing that tops controversy is war, they are busy putting the final touches on their final scene.

They are dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s on the There’s No Going Back Now plan.

We are already at war. We have been at war.  For a long damn time, now.

News is almost extinct, civil rights are nonexistent, censorship is being battened down with furious rapidity and almost no mention, and after that, it’s

So from their point of view, Trump’s complete idiocy is an asset.

Nobody is minding the store. Not that a president has had much power to “mind the store” in a long while, but still, politicians are a pesky bunch and as the future, in their minds, is a fait accompli – because it doesn’t take a West Point grad to see that bombing the same motherfuckers you’re arming is

[deadly]

not a good idea, and that sooner or later the term “nuclear option” takes on a more literal meaning.

And since arming the people we’re bombing has been official military policy for so long we don’t even notice it, what’s the play?

(There is one. A simple one. But we’re in these assholes’ addled brains at the moment, and yes, those probably are worms you’re feeling crawling all over you, so we won’t stay long.)

Now, based on everything these assholes have done and are doing, based on only the facts that no one argues over, and from their perspective:

what is their play?

Any eighteen year old Army Private is well versed in “first-order effects” and “second-order effects.” This is not rocket science.

So Trump and his band of loyal Nazis is their answer.

And our chance.

Just as the solution is always inside the problem; just as every equation is always simultaneously its own inverse; and since the question is the answer and the answer is the question, it just might be that this useful idiot is quite useful to us as well.

Trump has given us a target and aroused passion. And Lord God Almiiiiitey, did we ever need that!

Still, there are those of us who still must keep our eye on the War Machine ball speeding along at breakneck pace. Some who know that changing Trump for Pence or Clinton or whatever other Scarecrow they stick in front of us changes the font and leaves the equation intact.

This is not an insect bite. This is in the bloodstream. In the marrow. In the soil, the seeds, the water, the industry, the food, churches, schools, clothes, air, and the fucking small town fire departments, for god’s sake. So it’s pretty important that those who actually can grasp that, do.

On September 11th, 2001 three World Trade Towers fell

and so did any pretense of war.

The groundwork was laid. No more rehearsals.

Opening night had finally arrived.

And it does not take a wealth of world history to illustrate this.

Tic-Tac-Toe Level Knowledge is more than enough.

Two big dots on the horizon, please and thank you.

 

 Vietnam  → “War on Terror” 

  • Vietnam – a fucking mess

    • (Lesson: Volunteer Military, no damn draft.)
    • (Lesson: You don’t want actual news coming out.)

Both of these are symbiotic. And everything before and since, a million moving pieces only point one way. Detail folds in upon detail to form an HD mosaic. There is no puzzle once one looks. There are no deductions needed. But the world is vast and deep and we are flooded with input, so that even those who spend a lifetime studying cannot take it all in, let alone even know what information is needs to be taken in.

We see fragmented sections, and if that is not by design, it must entail one extraordinary flood of coincidences.

  • War on Terror: there is no “we” in “war”

    • (Lesson: Except where absolutely necessary never ever let the left hand know what the right hand is doing. In fact, chop off every hand you can and move as rapidly as possible to eliminate hands attached to humans altogether.)

Humanity is the death of war.

Can’t have that.

[ASIDE]
[[of aside of aside of aside]]
I am stating both those very evidence-packed conclusions as fact without putting forward even a hint of supporting testimony – something I am not given to doing – because I believe the prima facie facts involved are so strong as to be presumptively stipulated to.
  • My belief that there’s no chance in hell anyone will ever read this particular post may have factored in, as well.
But, on the off chance, like, the way, way off-chance that there is any man or machine in existence that will both read this and believe there is some opposing fact that calls the into question a presumptive stipulation,, even if improbably,  I will retract it as fact, add your thoughts and support for claim(s) questioned.
[END ASIDE]
[[of aside of aside of aside]]

Well hell, I don’t know.

Maybe it is just that the military, not usually a fly-by-the-seat-of-their-pants type organization, has moved in such an exponentially aggressive compartmentalization that soldiers themselves are terrified by it, wholly by happy accident.

That’s probably it. Just chance.

And yes,

– stop any internal dialogue –

we are so at fucking war. Until recently no one has even mentioned the Navy, and even now the only focus is on fucking China.

Unless I’m forgetting some famous New York Times or WaPo reporters on the US Navy beat. And no, Trump’s little soiree on the Gerald Ford the other day does not count.

(Okay, not digressing into a 5th Fleet rant.)

 

(And here is, at last, the actual point, just about 2,500 words in.)

 

Nazis make sense, you know,

for

Team Kill Kill Kill

 

Germany is in serious play. Germany is not optional for the US militarily.

Germany is the keys to the kingdom.

The drones are certainly not all that Germany means. NATO is rather obvious, but for practical, Socratic reasoning let us remove the abstraction altogether for now.

We don’t need chess, here. This is Tic-Tac-Toe.

Drones.

We need brute force to keep our drones. We certainly cannot lose them to the enemy. For our drones we need Germany.

We are not leaving Germany to chance.

Oh, say, you know who’s good at that?

Nazis.
