In his charming and inimitable way, the Donald has threatened to attack Iran if it restarts its civilian nuclear program.
Like a black hole, the swamp draws everything into its gravitational hold, nothing escapes, not even libertarians.
Rand Paul, the Republican Senator from Kentucky, has made the confirmation of the neocon CIA director Mike Pompeo as secretary of state possible.

But there is a problem with this business model.
Establishment Democrats, once again showing the bitter fruit of petty spite that now brands their party, have filed a lawsuit because Donald Trump won the election.
It’s the Russians, of course—and a lot of other people, including WikiLeaks and that guy with the Nixon tattoo, Roger Stone.
Mehdi Hasan, a mainstream journo who’s written for big league propaganda media and hosts a program on Al Jazeera English—state owned by Salafi fanatics in Doha, Qatar—thinks we have a “soft spot” for Bashar al-Assad.
On Friday night, I thought Trump’s Syria attack would turn out to be one of two things.
Either a devastating blitz that would take out Bashar al-Assad, his government and military, and leave the Syrian people in the same condition as the Iraqis after Bush’s invasion, or it would be al-Shayrat 2.0, basically a lightshow and a few broken things that on a grand scale are basically insignificant.
Syrian Girl, aka Mimi Al Laham, tweeted earlier today about what amounts to a psychological operation at Facebook.

Fox News, the network President Trump wakes up to every morning before he begins his now legendary tweets, has posted an op-ed by Robert Charles, a former assistant secretary of state for President George W. Bush and a former naval intelligence officer.

It’s official. Donald Trump is now a full-blown neocon.
This was obvious even before he appointed the war criminal John Bolton to be his senior advisor. In fact, as predicted before he was elected, it was inevitable he would join the neocon club, although most neocons dislike him, just like the establishment dislikes him, not because he won’t follow instructions, but because he’s an interloper, an outlier, somebody who didn’t come up through the ranks, never mind he’s moving the agenda forward.
Donald Trump’s campaign was framed as a fight against the globalists. He was going to get rid of NAFTA and TPP. He was going to drain the swamp. He promised to be a noninterventionist in foreign affairs.
Since becoming president, he’s done none of these things.
