It is entirely bizarre how an obvious lie can be furbished into truth and this is widely accepted not only by apparatchiks of the war party, but a large segment of the American people.
It looks like Trump will plunge us into war, either in Iran or Syria, and possibly both with the truly frightening prospect of Russia and the US going up against each other.
John Bolton warned Russia the United States will take “necessary steps” to stop it meddling in the 2018 midterms.
“I made it clear that we wouldn’t tolerate meddling in 2018 and that we were prepared to take necessary steps to prevent it from happening,” he said.
Both Matt Drudge and Alex Jones are responsible for motivating the disenfranchised to vote for Donald Trump. Now that Trump’s the imperial president—a narcissistic version of George W. Bush—it’s up to MAGA media to support the agenda, even if that agenda is markedly different than what he told us while on the campaign trail.
The moment president Donald Trump invited the neocon John Bolton to run his foreign policy it was obvious Iran would fall between the crosshairs. Bolton has advocated killing Iranians since his days as US ambassador (unconfirmed) to the UN.
Last Sunday, Trump threatened Iran and president Rouhani. The Donald felt it was necessary to use all caps to get his message across. Continue reading “Trump’s All Cap Iran Tweet: Precursor to War?”

During the Trump campaign, I wrote a book on the influence of Frank Gaffney, the fringe neocon who has made a career pulling fire alarms, telling us Islam will destroy western civilization and enslave us to Sharia law.
Earlier this week Trump’s national security adviser John Bolton installed Fred Fleitz as the National Security Council’s executive secretary and chief of staff. Fleitz worked for Bolton at the State Department during the Bush administration. He is a senior staff member at the Center for Security Policy (CPS), a hardline neocon think tank founded by Gaffney. Its raison d’etre is taking out the mullahs in Iran, who are invariably described as “Islamofascists,” and unflattering support for the Israeli Likudnik ethnic cleansers.
