All-Caps Bette and the Kazak Bots

Midler and the libs are batshit crazy.

Bette Midler, the washed-up Hollywood actor and singer, warned us a couple days ago that they’re out to deceive and mislead us with “malicious content.” So imperative is her message, Midler posted it in all-caps, the textual equivalent to screaming. 

The Hollywood elite, wealthy and liberal, insist you believe without question the fact-free idea Russia, China, and—out in left field, according to Midler—mysterious “Kazaks” are working together to undermine “democracy” in America. 

I think she means Russian Cossacks. Or maybe she means the Kazakhs of Central Asia. It’s difficult to tell when people so effortlessly slide into delusion, deception, and eagerly buy into lies without question or even suspicion. 

Here’s the truth, and I don’t need all-caps to get my point across: this Russian bot nonsense was invented by the elite and adopted by its political class after the surprise election victory of Donald Trump, who fooled millions of people into believing he would end the wars and drain the fetid DC swamp. 

Democrats can’t stand the thought of this crony capitalist loudmouth being reelected, so they’re pushing the ludicrous Russian collusion story that should have died with the deflated mess that was the Mueller investigation. 

The “impeachment” of Trump is a farce. It will never make it out of the Senate and this will drive Midler—and middle finger and anger management candidate De Niro—and all the other self-deluded libs bonkers. 

It is predicted the impeachment farce will have the opposite result of what House Democrats intend—it might work to get Trump reelected. 

If that happens, all hell will break loose, and millions suffering from the micro aggressions of political reality will go into the street. It won’t be pretty.

Steve Bannon, China, and the Committee on the Present Danger 4.0

A transition from Islamic to Chinese enemies.

Steve Bannon is making himself useful. According to The New York Times, he has rekindled the paranoiac fire that fed the Cold War military-industrial complex and stoked red hysteria far and wide.

This is the fourth iteration of the Committee on the Present Danger. The first committee was originally formed in 1950 and produced the founding document of the manufactured Cold War—NSC-68, written by Paul Nitze. 

He later wrote the Gaither Report. It argued that “nuclear deterrence”—including the insane idea of a nuclear first strike—was more important than protecting the public from a nuclear war through diplomacy, treaty, and the concept of Mutually Assured Destruction. Members of Nitze’s anti-detente group ended up in the Reagan administration.

Following Bush’s Afghanistan and Iraq invasions and the commencement of the never-ending war on terror, the third CPD was formed and began a process of neoconization with the inclusion of Joe Lieberman, former CIA boss James Woolsey, neocon ideologue Laurie Mylroie, neocon founder Norman Podhoretz, Islamophobe Frank Gaffney, AEI adjunct fellow Danielle Pletka, and other associates of the American Enterprise Institute, Heritage Foundation, American-Israel Public Affairs Committee, and the Boeing Company (see this web archived page).

The fourth and current iteration was established in March. It includes Bannon. The vice-chairman, remarkably, is the fringe neocon Frank Gaffney. CFR member and Claremont Institute fellow Mark Helprin, former CIA spook Clare Lopez, the aforementioned Woolsey, and Jianli Yang are also members. Yang is a mascot of sorts for the revived CPD’s anti-China agenda. He is said to be a survivor of the Tiananmen Square Massacre of 1989. 

From the current CPD website:

“The Committee on the Present Danger: China” is a wholly-independent and non-partisan effort to educate and inform American citizens and policymakers about the existential threats presented from the Peoples Republic of China under the misrule of the Chinese Communist Party. Its purpose is to explain these threats that range from: the PRC’s accelerating military buildup; its active information and political warfare that targets the American people and our business, political and media elites; cyber warfare; and, economic warfare. 

In other words, the latest CPD is little different than its predecessors. It is primarily a propaganda apparatus to transition the forever war state away from past enemies—the Soviet Union, Islamic terrorism—and focus hysteria on a new and much more formidable enemy. 

Thus the need for even more military spending and the manufacture of outrageously expensive weapons systems—the F-35 boondoggle, Hellfire missiles, expeditionary seas bases, space-based weapons, missile systems galore, littoral combat ships, attack helicopters, etc., ad nauseam.

WTF Friday: The Dark Side of the Moon

I guess I’m supposed to be impressed, but I’m not. 

The chicoms have landed a probe on the dark side of the moon, now commonly called the far side. This is a first, primarily because nobody, astronomers included, give a fig about the dark side, which is as inconsequential and yawn-inspiring as the side facing us.
