While Poverty Soars, Trillions Spent On Wars In Iraq And Afghanistan Wasted While The Amerikkkan People Are Lied To

Millions of Americans know poverty only too well and yet there are, presumably, states where poverty is more problematic than others. I am quite sure that many would beg to differ.

15 states where poverty is worse than you might think

Developed in 1963, the official poverty rate is based on pre-tax income thresholds related to the cost of a minimum food diet and the number of individuals who depend on that income.
That is unbelievable! The ‘official poverty’ rate based on pre-tax? What the hell??!!! After deductions is what tells the true story, not some before taxes bullshit. None of my paychecks have ever looked good before or after taxes and other deductions and what was there to show for those taxes? Wars! Wars and more wars!
And so we come to this!

Confidential documents reveal U.S. officials failed to tell the truth about the war in Afghanistan

Senior U.S. officials failed to tell the truth about the war in Afghanistan throughout the 18-year campaign, making rosy pronouncements they knew to be false and hiding unmistakable evidence the war had become unwinnable.

“We were devoid of a fundamental understanding of Afghanistan — we didn’t know what we were doing,” Douglas Lute, a three-star Army general who served as the White House’s Afghan war czar during the Bush and Obama administrations, told government interviewers in 2015. He added: “What are we trying to do here? We didn’t have the foggiest notion of what we were undertaking.”

What was the pretext for the war in Afghanistan?

The United States invasion of Afghanistan occurred after the September 11 attacks in late 2001, supported by close US allies. The conflict is also known as the US war in Afghanistan. Its public aims were to dismantle al-Qaeda, and to deny it a safe base of operations in Afghanistan by removing the Taliban from power.

Again, America cannot win a war! It does not matter how much military equipment is sent to a warzone, the fact should be clear to ALL by now, that America’s military ain’t shit! And if you don’t believe that, then keep reading.

“If the American people knew the magnitude of this dysfunction . . . 2,400 lives lost,” Lute added, blaming the deaths of U.S. military personnel on bureaucratic breakdowns among Congress, the Pentagon and the State Department. “Who will say this was in vain?”

Since 2001, more than 775,000 U.S. troops have deployed to Afghanistan, many repeatedly. Of those, 2,300 died there and 20,589 were wounded in action, according to Defense Department figures.

“If the American people knew of the magnitude of this dysfunction…2,400 lives lost.” And for what???!!!

The sad part is that Americans are so far removed from wars that we just don’t care. We don’t care that supposedly, healthy specimens of individuals were suited up and sent overseas to fight who or whom and how and why? No one had a clue. And it was most definitely in vain that over 2,400 lost their lives and my guess would be that the numbers are even higher since it is quite obvious that we cannot believe one lying word out of the mouths of our politicians aka warmongers and war hawks and those would include BARACK OBAMA, GEORGE W. BUSH, GEORGE H.W. BUSH and the current reigning lunatic-in-chief, DONALD TRUMP.

Thousands upon thousands of Americans who suited up and who were sent to war zones, made it back and are now wounded and are trying to receive the dubious services of the Veterans Administration and we all know that ANY services received from the Veterans Administration is a joke; just a not so very funny joke since it has been reported that those wounded soldiers who made it back from overseas deployment and who had damn near lost their minds and were suicidal were put on hold by the Veterans Administration when they called seeking help.

“VA Suicide Hotline! Hold Please!”

Some workers handle only one to five calls each day and leave before their shifts end even though phone lines have gotten busier, the emails say. As a result, 35% to 50% of the calls roll over to back-up centers where workers have less training to deal with the emotional problems of former service members.

In February, an Inspector General investigation revealed that some of the in-coming calls early last year had rolled over to back-up centers and gone to voicemail.

And surprise! Surprise! The original article was taken down and cannot be found online. Go figure! Can’t have the dirty secrets bandied about that America couldn’t give two flying turds about those whom we absentmindedly “Thank for their service.” What the hell does that do for someone who supposedly “put their life on the line” for this worthless ass shithole? Can it feed them? Can it house them? Can it give them the medical/psychological care they need? Can it pay their fucking bills?

But to know that it was ALL for nothing is what the troops who were sent over to Afghanistan are saying. There was no plan. There was no blueprint. There was no exit strategy. We were fed bald-faced lies by ALL presidents that had anything to do with the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and so that also means that whatever we have been told about Libya, Syria, Yemen are also lies, lies, lies and damn lies! Trump even supposedly dropped the MOAB(Mother of all bombs) in Afghanistan and what the fuck did that do? Not a goddamn thing but kill two Afghan camel herders and take money from social programs that are sorely needed seeing as how we are experiencing poverty that’s worse than what was experienced during the first Great Depression because make no mistake, we are in a Worse Depression what with the emergence of Third World diseases in this so-called ‘First World’ nation whereas abject poverty and opulence sit side by side, where tent cities are right in the midst of new construction for luxury high rise condos in Los Angeles, but over in Las Vegas, the homeless are living in tunnels. Coming into Chicago, all you see are tents lined up; endless rows of tents. The same in Baltimore and in any and every city in Amerikkka.

George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump — and their military commanders have been unable to deliver on their promises to prevail in Afghanistan. U.S. officials acknowledged that their warfighting strategies were fatally flawed and that Washington wasted enormous sums of money trying to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation. 

What? Wanted “to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation?” So that they could what? Open a Starbucks? Open a Walmart? Open a Popeye’s Chicken shack? Open a Target? Are they fucking serious? This shithole is collapsing what with an infrastructure that is so damn old that bridges are collapsing, pipes that run water to homes are in pieces. Sinkholes are swallowing up blocks of cars. Entire cities look like war zones. Just go to damn near every state and you’ll find rows of abandoned, falling down buildings, downtown areas that have been abandoned; just row upon row of dilapidated buildings and those assholes wanted “to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation?” The Amerikkkan people are stupid as hell. There you sit with your dumb, fat ass glued to a chair while staring down at a phone that is your whole life while your paycheck is being deducted for shit because “attempting to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation” is not why we are paying taxes. That is not why we have payroll deductions. And yet, all we hear from so-called politicians is that we have no fucking money to help our own citizens who are sitting all up in tents trying to cure their typhus and hookworm. Seriously??!!! What.the.fuck.

“What did we get for this $1 trillion effort? Was it worth $1 trillion?” Jeffrey Eggers, a retired Navy SEAL and White House staffer for Bush and Obama, told government interviewers. He added, “After the killing of Osama bin Laden, I said that Osama was probably laughing in his watery grave considering how much we have spent on Afghanistan.”

Yeah! What did we get for over $1 trillion? And we cannot even believe the bullshit that the U.S. government put out about Osama bin Laden since I read that the man had long since died from kidney failure long before Seal Team 6 arrived on the scene. If Osama bin Laden was deep sixed, then I’ve got a bridge for sale in London.

Keep believing the bullshit! Keep buying the lies and you will continue to look around for somewhere to put up a tent and then find yourself locked up thanks to vagrancy laws being put on the books in every city in this fucking shithole because they got nothing but wars and wars and they don’t even have a clue why the fuck there is a war and what to do in a war or how to exit a war of choice. If veterans cannot even get housed and are dying on the streets, what the hell do you think is going to happen to the rest of us? But go right ahead with your head glued to that phone. I hope your tent comes with a USB port and some electricity. Otherwise, the jail has electricity, but you won’t get to keep your phone while you’re cooling your heels in there after having been swept up in a homeless tent city raid.

Meanwhile, your government has some more lies to tell you about why we are at war in Afghanistan and why U.S. troops are still over in Iraq. By all means, keep believing the shit they spout because you love being lied to.

And so I will leave you with a little poem I wrote for the wannabe soldiers.

War Is Always Such A Blessing!

War is always such a blessing
It never is distressing or depressing.
I know all too well that this is true.
War has been good for me and you.

You proudly give your lives up for the rich.
For us, life never is a bitch.
In a blaze of glory, you go out.
And really, that’s what it’s all about.

The drone operators are so brave
as they send little children to their grave.
Since the world has become our battleground,
the drums of war make a lovely, throbbing sound.

Teach your sons and your daughters about their duty.
And one day, when they are dead, we’ll make a movie.
It will honor their brave and noble deeds.
The wounded, we shall see to all their needs.

Through war, we bring peace unto this earth.
And though you break out in dubious peals of mirth,
the last laugh will always be on you,
for none of what is written is ever true.

When we put a lethal weapon in your hand,
and send you to die in a foreign land,
your life means nothing, you should know,
but you never give pause, you just go.

War is not only just a blessing,
to warmongers, it is also quite refreshing,
that you are so willingly prostituted,
and it’s all because you are just too stupid,
to understand that if it were not for you,
no drone could ever strike on cue!

I don’t know why I wrote that poem because you useless, brain dead Amerikkkans will NEVER take what I wrote to heart! More’s the pity and I pity the world!

 

So, What Happened To That “Extreme Vetting” Process?

Apparently, six more Saudi nationals have been detained since a Saudi national shot up a navy base in Pensacola, FL.

6 Saudi nationals detained for questioning after NAS Pensacola shooting: Official

Six Saudi nationals were detained for questioning Friday near a naval air station in Pensacola, Fla., after a Saudi gunman opened fire there, killing three people before being shot dead by officers.

The gunman was an aviation student from Saudi Arabia named Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani.

Alshamrani was said to be a student in a U.S. Navy training program for foreign military personnel.

That program is aimed at “immersing international students in our U.S. Navy training and culture” to help “build partnership capacity for both the present and for the years ahead.”

How’s that partnership working out? I mean, three people are dead and even more are in hospitals and only after that does the military see fit to “detain Saudi nationals” and “question” them afterwards. So, what? They were never questioned at all simply because Saudi Arabia is supposedly one of Amerikkka’s allies? Those people from the Middle East hate our guts, including the Saudi royal family and to believe any different is just plain stupid.

You don’t go all around the world bringing death and destruction and then have the nerve to believe that the shit you do will not come back to bite you in the ass! Those people from the Middle East have every reason to hate the shits that have gone over there and destabilized that region and for what? Oil? Just because this shithole could? Amerikkkan hegemony? All of the aforementioned would be about right.

As I stated in the blog previous to this one, Amerikkka is going to reap what Amerikkka has sown and this shithole hasn’t even begun to reap the shit it is due; not by a long shot especially when this shithole continues to welcome foreign nationals who are from regions that were fucked up by this shithole. The entire Middle East is in turmoil thanks to what this shithole put into action; all based on a lie of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. This shithole tortured Iraqi people for no goddamn reason at all. This shithole claimed that Osama bin Laden was the mastermind behind 9/11 and so amassed a shitload of human rights violations and didn’t even give a flying turd for doing so in Afghanistan, Pakistan and even in Yemen. And don’t even get me started over the shit stirring that this shithole caused in Libya that resulted in the murder of Muammar Gaddafi, the now deceased former Prime Minister of Libya.

But I digress. Let’s get back to why the U.S. military is still bringing Saudi nationals over here to train with our military since we are all to understand that this man was our mortal enemy who was also originally from Saudi Arabia, Osama bin Laden.

Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden was born in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, a son of Yemeni Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden, a millionaire construction magnate with close ties to the Saudi royal family.

Osama bin Laden was born in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in 1957 or 1958. He was the 17th of 52 children born to Mohammed bin Laden, a Yemeni immigrant who owned the largest construction company in the Saudi kingdom. Young Osama had a privileged, cosseted upbringing. His siblings were educated in the West and went to work for his father’s company (by then an enormous conglomerate that distributed consumer goods like Volkswagen cars and Snapple beverages across the Middle East), but Osama bin Laden stayed close to home. He went to school in Jiddah and married young.

 

 

Some of Osama bin Laden’s siblings were educated in the west. What? Over here in Amerikkka?

So why would the U.S. military allow foreign nationals from Saudi Arabia to come over here to train with our military if Osama bin Laden, who at one point in time was considered to be Amerikkka’s number one enemy and who was born in Saudi Arabia to an ‘elite’ family that was closely connected to Saudi royalty? Why would they do that if a man who hailed from Saudi Arabia became Amerikkka’s enemy number one? That doesn’t make any damn sense! And then no stone was left un-turned until they ‘allegedly’ killed him and deep-sixed him?

And only now are there reports out stating that the FBI is taking over the investigation of the mass shooting at a naval base by a Saudi national who was from an ‘elite’ family and is detaining and questioning other Saudi nationals. Why weren’t they questioned BEFORE the mass shooting incident? Why were they just allowed to come over here and obtain guns and ammo without having been ‘properly vetted’?

But meanwhile, Amerikkkan citizens are radiated and or subject to molestation at airports, ostensibly to keep us safe? Keep us safe? Yeah! From their own damn government! Because the government is responsible for letting in the terrorists! Amerikkkan citizens who are just trying to board a plane for business purposes or to visit friends and family or to go on vacations are not somewhere attempting to blow themselves up and yet we are ALL suspected terrorists when we have to go through TSA and meanwhile, the U.S. government is just allowing anyone who is allegedly well-connected from the Middle East to just come over here and grab guns and ammo and sit down and ‘train’ with our military personnel. Really???!!!

The shit for brains motherfuckers at the helm of this lopsided, sinking ass Titanic ain’t worth a goddamn and are chronic, vicious, habitual, pathological liars when they claim that we are being radiated, spied on and felt up to keep us safe when Saudi nationals are allowed to come over here and go on killing sprees and only after a killing spree are these Saudi nationals detained and questioned. If you can’t see what the hell’s going on, then you are dumb as a pile of shit!

Yet Another Example Of Whites Allowing Terrorists To Come To America To Shoot Up The Country

Naval Air Station Pensacola is seen in an aerial view in Pensacola, Florida, U.S. August 14, 2012. Picture taken August 14, 2012. U.S. Navy/Patrick Nichols/Handout via REUTERS

 

A man from Saudi Arabia, and not just ANY man, but a man from an “elite family,” was one of many who are allowed to come to the United States to train alongside U.S. soldiers, but, apparently, this one, Second Lieutenant Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, went rogue.

Saudi airman in U.S. for training suspected in deadly shooting at Florida Navy base

A member of the Saudi Air Force visiting the United States for military training was the suspect in a shooting that killed four people and injured eight at a U.S. Navy base in Florida on Friday.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said the suspect was a Saudi national attending training at the base as part of long-standing Navy program open to U.S. allies.

So, in other words, those who this Saudi airman killed, were killed by “friendly fire.” I mean, after all, this “Navy program was open to U.S. allies” and so I am quite sure that the dead are grateful to be dead thanks to getting killed by “friendly fire” by one of Amerikkka’s allies.

Saudi Arabia is usually known for beheading folks, but I guess they’ve upped the ante and are now going to start up the firing squad when getting rid of dissidents and others who pose a threat to the so-called ‘Saudi royals’. Not to mention, the dude that went on a killing spree was purportedly from an “elite family,” [of murderers, no doubt].

A person familiar with the program said that Saudi Air Force officers selected for military training in the United States are intensely vetted by both countries.

The Saudi personnel are “hand-picked” by their military and often come from elite families, the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity because they did not have permission to speak to a reporter. Trainees must speak excellent English.

So instead of screaming, “Allahu Akbar!,” Saudi dude, in perfect English screamed, “Allah is the greatest! Death to the West!”

And you stupid Amerikkkans really think that this fucked up government has your best interests at heart. Not to mention, while you are somewhere hating on American descendants of slaves, your fucking government is dragging folks from the Middle East over here who absolutely hate your fucking guts. How does it feel to be the HATED ones for once? So hated that someone would come ALL the way over here from Saudi Arabia just to fill your asses with bullets and send you straight to hell??!! Don’t like it do you??!! Good! But know this, turnabout’s fair play! What’s ‘good’ for us is ‘good’ for you.

I for one, am not one bit upset by all of this. You whites keep allowing these deranged foreigners to come over here, you give them access to weapons and military bases and then sit somewhere acting shocked when they go on killing sprees. Serves your ass right! And now, the U.S. government is going to conduct an investigation as will the Saudi government. But tell me, what good is that going to do for those who are lying on a coroner’s slab looking like Swiss cheese? They’re fucking dead and no amount of investigating is going to bring their dead asses back to life since a well vetted and from an “elite family” Saudi came over here, was given guns and ammo and so got to shooting and now, it’s INVESTIGATION TIME! Too fucking little, too fucking late!

Meanwhile, American descendants of slaves are seen as the problem. We are not the ones who are going off and murdering multiple folks on military bases. If foreigners aren’t doing that shit, then whites are at it and hell! You’ve taken that shit off military bases and into classrooms, movie theaters, concert venues, churches, grocery stores and every damn where else. And so is it any wonder that foreigners would come over here and catch the “killing spree bug” that’s been going around white circles? Obviously, hell fucking no! The ‘elite’ fucker that caught your “killing spree bug” was just doing what you white motherfuckers who claim to be filled with “white supremacy” engage in. And so, apparently, that shit’s spreading, thanks to your fucking government aiding and abetting with so-called ‘allies’ in sending you to meet your maker.

So keep looking at American descendants of slaves as the problem and you will continue to get your asses handed to you by your own damn government, that quietly approves foreign born mass murdering terrorists coming over here and taking up where home grown mass murdering terrorists have left off.

No indeed, I am not upset by all of this, not at all. This shithole is getting just what it deserves and like I’ve stated many, many times before, you are only just beginning to get the shit that’s due you. You ain’t even seen the tip of the iceberg yet, but you will. And you can thank your fucking government for this one since they ‘vetted’ this killer, welcomed him over here with open arms because he was from an “elite family.” Your government has deemed “elite families” to not be of interest when it comes to terrorism now? Wasn’t Osama bin Laden from an “elite family,” and look what they say he was the mastermind behind. Didn’t your fucking ridiculous ass government claim that Osama bin Laden was the mastermind behind 9/11? And yet, your government is right back to welcoming mass murderers as long as they are from “elite families?” What does that tell you about 9/11? Yeah! Wake your ass up! You’ve been lied to and some more shit! If your government was so concerned about terrorists coming over here and fucking shit up who are from “elite families,” your government would have stopped that shit, but you see it hasn’t. Keep believing the lies and you just may find that you are the next victim of yet another foreigner from an “elite family,” that your government gave the okay to to come over here and obtain weapons and ammo and send you to meet your maker. And when they kill 10,000 of you pasty asses, I guess that’ll be an excuse to go to war yet again! “War, what is it good for?” Ask the war hawks and warmongers. They get rich off that shit! Ask Dick Cheney’s Halliburton Blackwater sadistic, bestial psychopaths. Amerikkka ain’t shit and Amerikkka deserves what’s going down and what will continue!

“We Thank You For Your Service And Now Here Are Your Deportation Papers! Git!”

I have been saying over and over again to these foreigners who come here, that they are never more than one foot out the door, if and when this government says so. And it matters not if they so-called “served this worthless ass shithole.

Marine combat veteran who served in Iraq deported to El Salvador

“They basically snuck him out in the middle of the night,” one of the lawyers assisting with the case said.

A Marine combat veteran whose supporters were seeking a pardon from the governor of California was suddenly deported to El Salvador this week, according to advocates and immigration authorities.

Jose Segovia Benitez, 38, who served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1999-2004 and was deployed to Iraq, was deported to El Salvador on Wednesday, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Jose Segovia Benitez had a criminal record and according to him, he only became a criminal AFTER having signed up to kill people over in Iraq who’d done not a goddamn thing to him, personally. You see, his claim is that he suffered from PTSD(Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) due to having ‘served in the military’ and was stationed in Iraq and that after his stint in the military, he took to alcohol to cope and soon found himself committing felonies, left and right. What he must have failed to realize is that a condition of him remaining a citizen of this fucked up shithole was that he should be a ‘law abiding’ citizen and not a felon. He became a felon and so his citizenship was revoked, pronto, despite his “service to this country” in killing people in foreign lands even though those particular ‘felonies’ were condoned and co-signed by the U.S. government. If he was engaging in felonies that were considered sanctioned by this fucked up ass, hypocritical U.S. government, Benitez would still be sitting over here in this fucking shithole. But that’s not what he was doing. Some of his convictions include corporal injury to a spouse, for which he received an eight-year sentence, assault with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment, narcotics possession, conspiracy to commit a crime and driving under the influence. Benitez’s lawyers claim that he is very remorseful over having committed these crimes but that he was “not in his right mind” when he was committing the crimes which caused him to cease to be a law abiding citizen and turned him into a felon who then became eligible for deportation which is what happened; he was deported. His claim is that he would not have become a criminal if it had not been for the fact that he signed on the dotted line to kill people over in Iraq for the United States government and so that right there should be grounds for the dismissal of his deportation papers. All’s well that ends well. Uh…no..not according to the U.S. government. It is on their terms and their terms only and then your ass is grass.

Also, Mr. Benitez was so patriotic, that he had tattooed on his rib cage a huge depiction of the Statue of Liberty and across one arm, there was a tattoo; “USMC,” which he says will make him a target for gangs in El Salvador. What Mr Benitez failed to understand is that this shithole that granted him citizenship couldn’t give a rat’s ass for what happened to his ass after he left the military and certainly no one is moaning and wailing and gnashing their teeth at the Pentagon over the potential plight of Mr. Benitez in El Salvador. As far as they are concerned, any dealings they had with Mr. Benitez ended when he received his military discharge papers.

Those south of the border, who come here, promptly think that they are just as white and with just as many rights as the whites have given themselves in this shithole, but when they step out-of-line, they find out, quick, fast and in a goddamn hurry that their ass ain’t so fucking white because back to El Salvador, Columbia, Honduras, Mexico and Guatemala, your ass will go! You don’t have any fucking rights either, Latinos, Hispanics or whatever the hell you call yourselves. And American descendants of slaves are sitting somewhere wondering why you debased shits shut the fuck up and pretend that you are deaf mutes when you come over here and don’t take up for our Black asses. It is because you know that you are here on sufferance. If the whites look in your direction, you damn near jump out of your skin in fear that they will deport your asses back from whence you came. You would no more speak out against the shit that’s being visited on American descendants of slaves than you would cut off your right arm.

The whites have every damn body over here on lock down and don’t we all fucking know this. Just you ask Jose Segovia Benitez. Oh, that’s right. You can’t. He was deported back to El Salvador, was imprisoned there for a short time and then released. What he is doing now, who the fuck knows and who really gives a shit? As far as the U.S. government via the military is concerned, Mr Benitez is no disabled veteran who is qualified to seek the dubious services of the Veterans Administration. Mr. Benitez is just another worthless, deported felon who was here, illegally and who got what he deserved because he should have been able to deal with the consequences of a military deployment to a war zone. And so now, along with having been deployed, Mr. Benitez has been deported. Deployed? Deported? Shit happens. But that shit has consequences depending on whether it was a military deployment or deportation. I wonder, in hindsight, would Mr. Benitez still have gone and gotten himself deployed to a war zone since his claim is that that deployment is what caused him to lose his mind and subsequently ‘forced’ him to engage in criminal conduct which led to his deportation? We may never know and I don’t even care because it is my belief that Mr. Benitez got what he deserved. Nothing good ever comes from war. And I am quite sure that Mr. Benitez does not think that getting himself deported back to El Salvador with a huge depiction of the Statue of Liberty on his torso and ‘USMC’ tattooed on one arm was a good thing, especially when he encounters gang members who absolutely hate and detest everything that this shithole stands for and with good reason.

Me? Celebrate Memorial Day? Not Bloody Likely!

 

On a blog I posted in April of 2018, titled, “Americans Are Too Stupid To Realize That America Is A Fake Ass Disneyland! Smoke and Mirrors, People! Smoke and Mirrors! Read The Comments On This Article And Get A Damn Clue,” a comment posted on that blog made me sit and think for a spell. Below is the comment from qnubian528.

“People who aren’t from America had always see US “the big apple,the land of the thousand opportunities!”
That’s bullshit! What I always understood isn’t country of thousands opportunities,where “inequality” is a host,you can’t call civilize country where its own people can’t have free access on healthcare,but you can have free access to guns or every accessories that can kill human being!
Wow America country of thousands opportunities one of the bullshit I’ve ever heard!”

This bears repeating: “civilize country where its own people can’t have free access on healthcare, but you can have free access to guns or every accessories that can kill human being!”

That is so indicative of what this fucked up country stands for, it ain’t even funny. And millions do not have access to free healthcare and for those who do have access to healthcare, that healthcare is substandard. Only the rich can get great healthcare. The rest of us are dealing with healthcare that is comparable to what passed for healthcare in 1810 since what the fuck has changed as it relates to healthcare since? More women, especially Black women are dying in childbirth in what is supposed to be a ‘developed’ country than ever before, but in all actuality is more like a third world country. How in the world are people dying from childbirth in America? That makes no sense whatsoever, not unless it is ALL done by design and then it makes perfect sense.

And what about the shit that’s always on the news, the fact that yet another American has gone on a rampage and murdered multiple people and after the fact, law enforcement then finds a stash of assault weapons, multiple rounds of ammunition and enough guns and ammo to kill thousands. Meanwhile, the shooter’s mental health is questioned.

But now it is time to celebrate why hundreds of thousands of Americans have died in so many wars, I’ve lost count. It is time to celebrate the fact that this country loves war. America is in love with war and don’t say that it is not because if America was not in love with war, why then in the year 2019, is this country STILL at war and STILL trying to find some country to be at war with? War is ALL this country has ever known. The first ‘illegal’ colonizers warred with the Indians for this land and that set the standard; if you want something, go to war. If you want someone else’s land, go to war. If you want to build the country on the backs of another continent’s people, battle those people for their people, subdue them and then take the people from that continent. If you want some country’s oil, go to war and kill them and take over their oil. If you want an American company to be able to strip another country of its natural resources, go to war against that country. For whatever contrived reason, this country MUST be at war.

However, I refuse to celebrate war because that is exactly what we are doing when we celebrate Memorial Day. We are honoring, not a need for people to have died in wars, we are honoring the fact that people fought in elective wars. And what does ‘elective’ mean? It means we ‘chose’ to go to war. We did not have to, but because this nation is a nation of warmongers and war hawks, this is why we celebrate war. Don’t hand me that bullshit about how we are honoring our ‘war dead’ since they did not have to die. They did not have to suit up and be sent to foreign shores to die over an elective war; a war of choice. It has been stated that this country has been at war for over 220 of its 242 year history. This is what we are celebrating and believe me, that is nothing to celebrate. You people are sick and twisted who go around celebrating this shit with parades and cookouts and some more shit!

People don’t have free healthcare because our money is being spent on killing people and claiming what’s not ours to claim. We glorify guns and screech about the 2nd Amendment as if that is the only Amendment that’s worth a damn! All other Amendments pale in comparison to the 2nd Amendment especially seeing as how the 13th Amendment did not abolish slavery for if it did, there would not be over 2.3 million Black slaves sitting all up in prisons on bullshit drug charges, slaving away making shit for free to be sold by corporations and quite frankly, the 1st Amendment don’t mean shit either since what the hell is free speech these days when people can be jailed for publishing the fact that this shithole committed untold war crimes and crimes against humanity and free speech is being curtailed even as I type this? If some platform that I use to get my message out has a problem with my message, then my message gets shut down. And we all know that only whites own the platforms that people use to be heard. The news coverage is brought to us by white faces. Those who own the networks are all white. Those who own the newspapers and magazines are all white. Every media platform is owned by whites and whites have long been known for re-writing history to gloss over the vile ass shit they do and they are at it to this very day. And of course, whites are behind the celebrating of war with this Memorial Day celebration bullshit whereas we celebrate people who have died fighting in elective wars by hosting parades, throwing cookouts and watching baseball games. So go to a parade, munch down on a hotdog and then attend a baseball game, but don’t forget to take advantage of all those Memorial Day savings at the few remaining brick and mortar stores or better yet, order some plastic shit on Amazon and demand that it get to you the same fucking day because you’re celebrating war!

This bears repeating! “”Americans Are Too Stupid To Realize That America Is A Fake Ass Disneyland! Smoke and Mirrors, People! Smoke and Mirrors!” And I am quite sure that there are thousands of stupid ass Americans who will be lined up at Disneyland and at Disney World to celebrate war! And when Disneyland and Disney World close for the evening, that fake ass Cinderella will drag her tired ass to Motel 6 until her ‘magical’ shift begins the next day. Don’t fucking think about that or about the fact that those workers at Disneyland and Disney World are living like shit! Their lives are certainly not the stuff of dreams, but of nightmares of food insecurity, no healthcare, back breaking work, long hours in the heat and rain, motel living quarters and thankless Disneyland patrons.

Me? Celebrate Memorial Day? Not bloody likely!

War Is Always Such A Blessing!

War is always such a blessing
It never is distressing or depressing.
I know all too well that this is true.
War has been good for me and you.

You proudly give your lives up for the rich.
For us, life never is a bitch.
In a blaze of glory, you go out.
And really, that’s what it’s all about.

The drone operators are so brave
as they send little children to their grave.
Since the world has become a battleground,
the drums of war make a lovely throbbing sound.

Teach your sons and your daughters about their duty.
And one day, when they are dead, we’ll make a movie.
It will honor their brave and noble deeds.
The wounded, we shall see to all their needs.

Through war, we bring peace unto this earth.
And though you break out in dubious peals of mirth,
the last laugh will always be on you,
for none of what is written is ever true.

When we put a lethal weapon in your hand,
and send you to die in a foreign land,
your life means nothing, you should know,
but you never give pause, you just go.

War is not only just a blessing,
to us, it is also quite refreshing,
that you are so willingly prostituted,
and it’s all because you are just too stupid,
to understand that if it were not for you,
no drone would ever strike on cue!

Yes indeed, war IS ALWAYS such a blessing! War is a blessing because we get a day off to attend parades, eat hot dogs, drink beer and be thankful over how ‘free’ we are that we can still board an airplane after having been molested and radiated. We are free!

Yes indeed, war IS ALWAYS such a blessing! War is a blessing because we get to sit on our fat asses and forget about all the people who were killed by our sons protecting what? Freedom? We don’t have ANY freedom! Try not going through security to board an airplane and your ass will land in jail so fast, you won’t even have time to collect your wallet. Try protesting longer than your ‘permit’ allows and you’ll find your ass in jail so fast, your head will be spinning. Try lounging around on a sidewalk while homeless and see how free your ass is. You’ll be locked up before you can count to two. Try selling some un-taxed cigarettes on a New York street and if you’re a descendant of slaves, you’ll be choked to death and your killer will walk free. Try being a child descendant of slaves playing in a park with a TOY gun and you’re dead, two seconds after the official slave patrols pull up on you! Try driving down the goddamn street and you’ll end up dead, hanged in a Texas jail because you’re a Black woman. Try going to the hospital because you feel ill and you’re Black-assed, you’ll end up in the morgue. Yeah, wars are fought to protect NO freedoms that we go on and on about since we love the illusion of freedom which is why we love Disneyland and Disney World. We love our illusions! War is for other people to fight! But you’re fine because you’ve got a ticket to Disneyland!

Yes indeed, war IS ALWAYS such a blessing for the warmongers and war hawks who are in bed with the makers of the war weapons(Lockheed Martin, Boeing and Crew), you know who the warmongers are. They are AmeriKKKa’s politicians; Barack ‘Nobel Peace Prize Insane’ Obadroner, KillarE ‘Whitewater scandal Benghazigate Emailgate Big ass Jockstrap’ Clinton, Bernie “I believe in the drone program” Sanders, Combover “Build A Wall to Keep THOSE Illegals Out, Never mind us pink-assed motherfuckers, Indians? What Indians?” TrumpDump! And who makes the war machine possible? Why, our sons and soon…our daughters because the military generals have said that it is high time women saw some combat action. And guess why women are now necessary for the military. Can’t guess? You’re celebrating WHY! The ‘troops’ are dead, dying and committing suicide from being fucked up in the head after having been deployed too many goddamn times! You don’t get that? No, of course you don’t because all you know is that today gave you an excuse to sit back and indulge in too much alcohol, hot dogs and sun! Burn motherfuckers! Burn! Because one of these days, your turn is coming. So, eat, drink and be merry since you don’t really give a damn for the war dead because if you did, the last thing you would be doing in honor of their memory, is eating, drinking and sitting at a goddamn parade!

And when the troops do make it back to America from having whored themselves out to the warmongers and war hawks and they need some anti-suicide help, where is your ass after you finish sitting at the parade grounds, stuffing your face on hotdogs? You are nowhere to be found to man the suicide hotlines for those fucked up in the head soldiers that make it back.

“VA Suicide Hotline! Hold, Please!”

The VA, has been swamped with calls since opening in 2007. The volume increased from fewer than 10,000 in 2007 to more than 500,000 last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report.

A 2010 calculation by the VA estimates that 22 veterans kill themselves each day. The VA, which has not updated that estimate, says the hotline “rescues” 30 veterans from suicide each day.

Some workers handle only one to five calls each day and leave before their shifts end even though phone lines have gotten busier, the emails say. As a result, 35% to 50% of the calls roll over to back-up centers where workers have less training to deal with the emotional problems of former service members.

So, the people who are trained to deal with potential suicides handle only one to five calls a day? For real? And after having listened to one suicidal former service member, they are out the door and oh what a great day it is, eh? Then, those who are on backup are sitting somewhere looking cross-eyed for lack of training or know-how in dealing with the ’emotional problems’ that they are hearing from the former servicemen. Go figure!

You sit somewhere on your stupid ass and think that “thank you for your service” gets the job done when you know damn well that a fucked up in the head veteran needs more than your worthless ass ‘thank yous’. What the hell are they supposed to do with a “thank you?” Cure their mental illness with it? House themselves with it? Stop drinking because of it? Take it and use it as a prosthetic? You brain dead, dumb as all hell Americans make me sick with your reasoning that you should always be able to take the easy way out. As long as you don’t have to suit up and kill someone you’ve never met, what’s the big deal? Well the big deal is that this is yet another reason why you are going to pay for this shit. This is why your shit is continuously getting flooded and hit with tornadoes and some more shit because you don’t give a damn about anybody besides your own worthless hide. I am SO very glad that millions of you are sitting somewhere moaning and wailing over the fact that life as you know it has ended. And I am SO very glad that millions more of you are soon to join them and so believe me, you have absolutely nothing to celebrate! I guarantee it! Fuck you and fuck your Memorial Day celebrations! They and you are meaningless!

Survivors Of Hurricane Michael Are Wondering Why Their Plight Has Been Ignored. Don’t Worry, Millions More Are About To Share Your Plight

 

Those who were impacted by Hurricane Michael in Florida’s Panhandle are sitting somewhere in tents or are in motels wondering when is life going to “return to normal.” It’s not, but others will soon find out just how frustrating it is to live without the ‘creature comforts’ they had been taking for granted. And in case you have forgotten, Hurricane Michael made landfall in North Carolina on October 20, 2018 and whipped the states of South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, and Florida on the way into land.

Survivors of Hurricane Michael in the Florida Panhandle fear they have been forgotten

Many residents are living in damaged homes or trailers unfit for human habitation. Some live in tents.

FEMA has been paying for 283 families to live in temporary housing for six months, a period that expires Tuesday . The county and state applied for a 90-day extension; this week, FEMA granted 60 days, and only 17 families qualify.

“What this means is, come Tuesday, about 800 individuals will lose their housing with nowhere to go,” said Griffitts.

Mother Nature, ‘The Equal Opportunity Gentrification Administrator’! Thank you Mother Nature! And for those of you who think that you are immune to what’s going down, you are not. Get over yourselves because typhus and hookworm are coming to a tent near you! Yes indeed, you are going to join those poor homeless Black people who are on Skid Row in trying to get rid of worms dripping out their ass! White parasites like camping, so you should feel right at home in your damn tents! What’s the problem? You only want to go camping when it’s ‘Vacation Time’? Well, consider this to be an extended vacation. You may as well make the most of it since you’re in it for the long haul. Pampered white parasites just cannot stand hard times. That’s for those who don’t look like them. That’s for humans to deal with. Not anymore, it isn’t. Now parasites are getting a taste of what they’ve never had a problem dishing out!

“The next big challenge is wildfire season, which runs until July. The storm destroyed 72 million tons of timber, according to Jim Karels, director of the Florida Forest Service. No more than 15 percent has been hauled to sawmills and paper mills. The rest is still on the ground — a disaster waiting to happen.”

More and worse shit to come! So batten down the hatches or should that be, run for the hills? HA! I’m loving it! And the article goes on to state that even the fucked up military is counting on those asswipes in Congress to pass a disaster-funding bill to help rebuild Tyndall Air Force Base since it “took a direct hit from the eye of the hurricane.” HA! I fucking wonder why! Like hell I do!

“Many of the lingering effects of the hurricane are intangible — stress, anxiety, depression. Normal rainstorms trigger outsize panic. People are visibly fatigued, wrung out.”

In Panama City, Sabrina Fleming is back in business at Peggy Sue’s Barber Shop. “I’m 42, but I feel 82,” she said. “Life is just harder now. Everything takes time. It’s so draining and I want to just run away.”

One young mother of three, Stephanie Michelle Powiliatis of Panama City, posted a plea on a local Facebook group: “There are so many levels to this destruction that no one could have predicted, and I feel completely out of control lately. I’m constantly scared, more anxious than I was before Oct. 10th, depressed, and worried. Please tell me I’m not alone here.”

More than 200 neighbors replied. They assured her: You’re not alone.

No, you are not alone…never think that. Other pale-assed parasites are about to join you!

Nearly 40 million at risk of severe weather over weekend

A new storm is beginning to organize along the Texas-New Mexico border, and it’s expected to deliver a first round of severe weather today from Texas to Mississippi.

Gusts of almost 60 mph and golf ball-sized hail already have been reported in west Texas this morning.

The system will head east across the southern Plains from San Antonio toward Dallas.

So, as you can see, folks in Florida, there will be millions more soon to join you. Also, let us not forget that Nebraska, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, Minnesota, Colorado and basically the entire Midwest was recently devastated. Those folks are over there wailing and screeching and begging Mike Pence to do something about the damage the bomb cyclone wrought on their land. Land which didn’t really belong to them because it was first stolen, but Nature has reclaimed it. Again, thank you Mother Nature. Ever the equalizer, you are, to be sure! And those of us who have been the victims of white land grabbers appreciate you leveling their fields, overflowing their levees and fucking up their bottom line. I’ve seen pictures of submerged farmland, dams overflowing, entire towns underwater as well as massive piles of grain, destroyed and that meant money, money money. But not anymore. Now, they are over there asking and begging for relief from their white gods, Mike Pence and Donald Trump. Here’s an idea! Take your ass to another Trump rally and beg him for some help! But the problem is see, he can’t help you and even if he could, he’s busy trying to keep those south of the border from coming to this fucked up shithole to sit somewhere alongside you and watch you bemoan the loss of your shit in this shithole.

Those south of the border must have it mighty bad if they want to come here and sit up and watch white parasites wail, screech and moan over the loss of their precious possessions. I’m fucking buying earplugs ’cause I’m tired of listening to your whining about how you’ve lost every goddamn thing! Good! That builds character. Oh my bad! You must first have some character to build and parasitic as you whites are, you don’t have any! Well sit your pale asses down and continue to cry, moan and wring your hands in your tents and wait for Congress to get around to forgetting about Trump’s tax returns long enough to pass legislation to get you some funding to rebuild! From what? Scratch? Just scratch around and you’ll find something of value in that brown quagmire that’s swallowed your shit whole! Goddamn! This is all just SO wonderful, I can barely contain myself.

You savage white shits are getting just what’s due you! And so dig into that lovely brown muddy sludge because you ain’t done getting what’s coming for your asses! I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. “You got So goddamn much to answer for, you ain’t even begun yet, but you will!” Mark my fucking words, you worthless asswipes; firenadoes, lavanadoes, tornadoes, bomb cyclones, earthquakes, historic flooding and much more is coming for your ass! And newsfuckingflash! There is nowhere for you to drag your pale parasitic ass! So stay put and wait for it! It won’t be long now! I promise you!

The White Man Is The Worst Landlord

No more thoughts run through my head
of killing fields and of the dead.
I have become immune to the suffering
of all the addicts who aren’t recovering.
I immerse myself in fun and games
as I ignore the world as it goes up in flames.
For why should I put forth an effort
when I’d rather traverse a hot and arid desert
than think of the white man as he withers and dies
from all his atrocities, wars and lies?
No plague could be too severe;
no earthquake would I fear.
For the white man is the worst landlord.
And upon his death, this world could be restored.

Yes indeed, the ‘white man’ otherwise known as a parasite is THE worst landlord! And now, you are going to be repaid for ALL the fucking vile ass shit that you have done ALL across this godforsaken planet! ‘White privilege’ is not going to save you! Your fucked up sense of ‘superiority’ is not going to save you! Your bombs and drones and missiles are not going to save you! The money you spend on military might is wasted because some military installations are underwater and are useless. Those politicians who look just like you are fucking useless because there is not a goddamn thing that they can do to fix your fucked up shit! The world can’t be rid of you fast enough! But know this! Your fucking number is up!

As Unprecedented Flooding Continues All Across America, America’s Fucked Up Infrastructure Is Not Up To The Challenge

As this empire in decline continues to decline or in other words, while Rome floods, the emperor tweets, people die and the flooding gets worse.

Historic flooding kills three, forces hundreds from homes across the Midwest

Heavy rain and melting snow that overpowered the Missouri River forced hundreds of families out of their homes and forced the base that is home to U.S. Strategic Command to sharply scale back operations on Sunday.

At least three people are confirmed to have died in what the National Weather Service called “major and historical river flooding” along parts of the Missouri and Mississippi river basins.

The Missouri River reached 30.2 feet in Fremont County in far southwestern Iowa on Sunday, breaking the record by 2 feet and topping levees in the towns of Bartlett and Thurman. A levee was breached on the Platte River near North Bend, northwest of Omaha, Nebraska, on Sunday afternoon; authorities urged all residents to move to higher ground immediately.

U.S. Strategic Command, or StratCom, which oversees the U.S. strategic nuclear forces from Offutt Air Force Base near Omaha, said Sunday that floodwaters had overwhelmed the southeastern side of the base despite the deployment of more than 235,000 sandbags and 460 flood barriers.

Base commanders told NBC affiliate WOWT of Omaha that the flooding was affecting as much as two-thirds of the more than 16,000 active-duty and civilian personnel at the base — which, in addition to hosting StratCom, is home to the 55th Wing, the largest wing within Air Combat Command.

The situation is so bad here in America that yet another military base is basically in shutdown mode because it is overwhelmed by water even after the “deployment of more than 235,000 sandbags and 460 flood barriers?” Here is an idea! Get your damn asses out of Venezuela starting up some shit there and come back here where you are needed by assholes who live by the cliché , “Build, baby build!” Are any of the affected civilians impacted by these floods wondering why there is no real help? If so, wonder no more especially since the military cannot even keep its feet dry nor can they keep their asses from starting shit in other countries and those shits are what is supposed to see us through disasters? How so when they cannot even see themselves through disasters and so we are to believe that we should live in fear of ISIS coming over here and fucking us up when ISIS, the Taliban and Alibaba and his forty thieves need not even bother since Mother Nature is sick and tired of whites’ shit and rightly so and is fucking their shit up to no end? Thank you Mother Nature! But I am quite sure that just as soon as Trump completes his ‘Twitter storm’, he will head right on over to the affected areas and pitch in and rescue trapped and stranded whites, he will also help with sandbagging and of course will see to it that every single last one of his supporters is taken care of. Remember how he told California to just “Rake those fires on outta there!” Good advice! “Rake that water right on outta there and head back in and assess the water damage to your fucked up homes.” Then send the bill to Trump!

How many of you are laughing at the poor Black Katrina hurricane victims now? How many of you racists think that what happened to the Black Katrina victims couldn’t happen to you? Now, your ass is sitting all up in some makeshift Red Cross shelter waiting on some assistance and some word on when you can go back to your water-logged homes to see if anything can be salvaged. That shit ain’t so funny now, is it? From all reports, your asses are going to be sitting up in shelters for some time to come, so dig in and laugh about it! And from what I’ve seen, every last ass that’s impacted by that flood shit has been pale-assed! Go figure! I probably can count on one hand the statistics of Black people sitting up in Nebraska and Iowa, but of course, even if some Black folks were affected by the flooding, no news coverage will they receive. That’s only for lily-pale ass!

And the good news is that this is not over! Since levees have been breached and rivers have risen way beyond flood stage, the danger is not over because the flooding is expected to continue into Wednesday. Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and many other states have all been impacted by major flooding to the point whereas many states’ governors have declared a ‘State of Emergency’. I have no idea who they are going to call to help with the situation seeing as how military bases have had to be shutdown due to flooding. Yes indeed, we are SO ready for war. We are so ready for war that our military bases will be fighting the war from beneath a flooded base. I hope the world is paying attention to this shit!

As for the folks who died; one was asked to help rescuers that had been stranded on a bridge, but the bridge gave out. Another one drove past a road barrier that was placed on the road asking drivers not to go forward, but dumbass drove around the barrier and ended up floating down stream somewhere. And yet another one died because of refusing to leave their home. There are 11 million people across 14 states that are being affected by flood waters. What does that tell you? It tells me that this planet has had enough. When folks continue to build and ignore the fact that there is no place for water to go when there is concrete and asphalt every damn where, this is what you can expect. If they had a fucking teepee, this shit would not be occurring, would it? But no, you have got to cut the trees down and build a big ass house and a long ass driveway to store your 8 vehicles and then wonder why your shit is flooded out. Seriously???!!! Oh, but those assholes are going to gather in a circle once the flood waters recede and sing “Kumbaya,” and exclaim that they are going to rebuild. GOOD! So, next year this time, we will watch this shit play out all over again! And don’t forget that hurricane season is just around the corner and so those who are on the coast will join you in getting flooded out again especially since they have not yet recovered from last year’s hurricane season. Not to mention the folks in Paradise, CA are still trying to get their act together from the recent wildfires in California. Is anyone taking notes? Anyone paying attention? Keep on building those McMansions. Keep on driving your Hemi-powered pickup trucks and your GMC Trailblazers. I hear tell that SUVS and big trucks are all the rage here in the U.S. and since that is a fact, expect more of this shit to occur because it would seem that you are not going to listen until your ass is floating down the goddamn street in your big ass truck! Bon voyage, dumbasses!

And as always, we know who set this shit in motion by thinking that they are the smartest shits to ever slither and crawl all across this world They have the answer for everything! All the other groups who were living as one with this planet was going about it ALL wrong, right? If your ass is pale, you have no one to blame but those who look like you for why you and your shit are flooded out! Own this because it is yours to own! Yeah, think on it because right about now, you’ve got ALL the time in the world because you’ve got nowhere to go. So try and do some ‘soul-searching while you’re sitting up in that Red Cross shelter. Oh, damn! What am I talking about? Whites don’t have a soul! Never mind.

While The Americans Are Dealing With An Orchestrated Government Shutdown, The Trump Administration Has Staged A Coup In Venezuela

Once again, Washington has installed another of its puppet dictators, this time in Venezuela, which is why Washington orchestrated this latest government shutdown that induced mass hysteria in the Amerikkkan people, just as it was designed to do. Amerikkkans obediently followed the ‘government shutdown bouncing ball’ which was orchestrated in order to cause the most harm by ensuring that federal workers lose their income while at the same time causing those who rely on federal programs to fear the loss of housing and food assistance even as Washington intends to allow multinational corporations to steal and abscond with everything in Venezuela that is not nailed down, especially its oil, gas and gold since Washington’s puppet dictator will allow Washington to dictate his every move. The U.S. does not intend to collapse without leaving a lasting impression.

 

Maduro claimed an attempted coup backed by the “gringo empire” was under way and urged supporters – and crucially the armed forces – to resist it “at all costs”.

“We are defending the right to the very existence of our Bolivarian Republic,” Maduro said, accusing his foes of trying to steal Venezuela’s oil, gas and gold: “They intend to govern Venezuela from Washington. Do you want a puppet government controlled by Washington?”
 
 

Nicolás Maduro, the duly elected president of Venezuela has given U.S. diplomats 72 hours to leave Venezuela. The Trump Administration’s response was to ignore the demand claiming that Maduro has been replaced by Juan Guaido, self-proclaimed president of Venezuela and CIA installed puppet. Quick to follow Washington’s recognition of Juan Guaido as the new president of Venezuela were Canada, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Argentina, Paraguay and Costa Rica. Brazil’s new far right president, Jair Bolsonaro, likewise followed suit since he is also just another Washington puppet.

Maduro is absolutely right in that this is indeed, “an attempted coup backed by the ‘gringo empire’.” And Russia has warned the Trump Administration against using military action in Venezuela to force Nicolas Maduro to step down and allow Washington’s puppet to become the next president of Venezuela.

 

We warn against this,” Russia’s deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, said in an interview with International Affairs magazine, a Russian media outlet. “We believe that this would be a catastrophic scenario that would shake the foundations of the development model we see in the Latin American region.”

Russia has supported Maduro’s government politically and militarily. The Kremlin dispatched two Russian bombers to Venezuela last month, a provocative move that raised red flags in Washington.
 
 

Once again, the Russians are trying to stop yet another blatant takeover by Washington of a sovereign state. And the Russians are the problem? The Trump Administration has stated that “all options are on the table,” including sanctions and military action. What has happened when the U.S. has used the military to do its dirty work?

 

David Smilde, a Venezuela expert from the Washington Office on Latin America advocacy group said: “Look at Somalia, look at Afghanistan, look at Iraq: all of those cases were supposed to be short military actions and actually what they do is end up generating enormous costs in terms of loss of life and infrastructure.”

 
 

But Washington does not care about loss of life or infrastructure since our tax dollars are then used to rebuild countries that the U.S. has bombed to smithereens and the people who are killed are of no consequence just as we are not, case in point is Iraq. The U.S. military destroyed Iraq and now Americans are footing the bill for the rebuilding of that country even as the U.S. government is ‘shutdown’. The U.S. had no business sending the military into Afghanistan and yet our tax dollars are being used to train Afghan forces to attack the Taliban while U.S. military forces are protecting Afghan opium in order to send shipments back to the U.S. and straight into the veins of Amerikkkans while at the same time claiming a “war on drugs.”

Every single time the U.S. sets its sights on another country, the people of that country suffer for it as does its infrastructure and those of us in the US suffer as well because we are told that there is no money and yet, somehow and mysteriously, money can always be found to buy more missiles and drones to attack countries that have done nothing to warrant the attack. And yet, the Trump Administration is yelling and screeching and grandstanding about the need to build a wall to keep those south of the border from coming to the U.S. when in fact, the Trump Administration’s policies are making life so miserable for those people, they are leaving their devastated countries and attempting to cross the border into the U.S., only to be met with tear gas and rubber bullets. The policies of the U.S. government has caused those people to have to flee their homes and now the U.S. wants to build a wall to keep out the results of policies it put into play to force people to run for their lives? That is insanity!

Iraq’s officials have stated that they want the U.S. out of their country. Libya is still in flames. Somalia, likewise. Afghanistan, the same. Yemen, indeed! And the list is endless. This is ALL because the ‘American empire’ is collapsing and intends to take as many countries down with it as it descends. It is like a gigantic snake that has had its head chopped off, but its tail is still thrashing about, destroying everything it strikes. This bitch, Amerikkka, even in its death throes is still dangerous and the only hope for other countries to make it through to the last thrash of this dying empire is Russia, China and Iran. Russia most definitely understands this since they have already sent military bombers to Venezuela, just as they had to with Syria because if not for the Russians, Syria would have a Washington installed puppet dictator. Maybe Russia is finally understanding what should have been understood hundreds of years ago in that no one can trust Amerikkkans. That ship should have long since sailed. Look at how this country treats its own citizens. Throws them under the bus at every opportunity even to the point of impoverishing those who work FOR the government. How can any Amerikkkan citizen still believe that the U.S. government gives a damn about their safety when TSA federal workers earn a measly $30,000 and have not been paid in over 30 days and come Friday, will miss a second paycheck? Homeland Security federal workers are not being paid and what was that agency set up to do? Keep US safe from so-called terrorists. The terrorists are sitting up on your tax dollars and strutting about the halls of congress and are inside the White House causing you much grief, anguish and hand-wringing since you cannot pay your bills, are about to lose your housing, are about to see your credit score take a nosedive, are about to lose your car and empty your pantry. The U.S. government is not some great entity that ever stood for a belief in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness because the average Amerikkkan is anything but happy.

Are you happy to be broke and destitute and in debt? Are you happy to live paycheck to paycheck? Are you happy about the fact that the government can just shutdown at any time and force you to work without pay over a trumped up excuse for the shutdown? Are you happy to see politicians that they claim you elect, act like children on the playground while your lives are spiraling down, out of control? Do you think the homeless are happy to be living on the streets? Do you think they are happy to have worms falling out of their asshole since hookworm has made a comeback which until now was only found in third world countries? Do you think they are happy battling typhus and hepatitis A,B and C? Do you think children are happy to go to bed at night with their stomachs growling? Do you think those people who just got shot dead in a bank in Florida were happy when those bullets pierced their flesh? Who the hell is happy in this shithole? Who? When federal workers are reporting that they are living paycheck to paycheck, how do you think others are living? Are you happy since you are sitting somewhere likely to blow yourself up with your meth lab? Are you happy that in order to make it through the day, you have to shoot up some heroin that your own government made possible for you to obtain since your government has instructed the military to guard some poppy plants in Afghanistan in order to send them here to feed your addictions since you are just too happy for words? Do you think Amerikkka’s 2.5 million prisoners are happy since many of them were imprisoned on bullshit drug charges while the U.S. government is the biggest drug cartel in the world? Yeah, we’re all fucking happy. Broke, drunk, high, stupid and happy, that’s US!

Stop following the bouncing ball. Look at where they don’t want you to look. When they are focusing your attention on a specific action orchestrated by them such as a government shutdown, then you can best believe that some foul ass shit is going down elsewhere. There is no U.S. media coverage of what the Trump Administration has been initiating in Venezuela. If they are so worried about people from south of the border coming to the U.S. then why are they hell bent on doing everything that would increase the numbers of those attempting to cross the border? It is all smoke and mirrors, people! Smoke and mirrors. Every single news article that I have read has been all about bad news. Verizon is laying off a percentage of its workforce. Apple is laying off people. Despite announcements of increased holiday spending, stores are still announcing closures. J.C. Penney has announced that it may have to follow in Sears’ footsteps. And as this empire collapses, Wall Street will be the last to go down. They are the musicians on this Titanic, furiously intent on ignoring the sinking ship until they are underwater. But sink, they will. Again, it’s ALL smoke and mirrors, people, smoke and mirrors and ‘follow the bouncing ball’ as they fuck up another country by installing a puppet dictator while ignoring the legitimate one. Amerikkka has been in the business of regime change for too damn long and it will not cease until this empire goes the route of Rome and we are definitely headed there. Just take a look around you. I see no ‘amber waves of grain.’ And if you see any, believe me, those waves of grain contain a known carcinogen, glyphosate. And you can thank your government for that as well. If you have not gotten a clue yet, then I don’t know what there is to say about you!

I’ll leave you with a little poem I wrote a few years ago. It seems an apt ending.

Armageddon’s Child Is Born!

The mirrors all are cracking,
and the smoke is blowing away.
You can see the whole thing clearly.
Another crash, they can’t delay.

Follow the Russian ruble.
Focus your attention on Iraq.
They created another terrorist.
And now Ebola’s coming back.

Don’t look beneath the table.
The gamblers all are dead.
The cracking of their bones,
means they have no betting spread.

This show is over folks.
And as the Ball comes to an end,
the rotund lady sings.
And there’s no money left to lend.

The dancers writhe in agony.
Their frenzied pomp is gone.
And the badly written script,
only elicits another yawn.

The bull is now a bear.
And as I look across the sea,
another bear just shakes his head,
over America’s stupidity.

Say “Farewell” to all you know.
The stars and stripes are torn.
As they launch the killing drones,
Armageddon’s child is born.

In case you forgot, they just recently flew an American doctor back to the U.S. They believe he was exposed to Ebola.

A Badge Of Shame: The Government’s War On America’s Military Veterans — The Most Revolutionary Act

via A Badge Of Shame: The Government’s War On America’s Military Veterans — The Most Revolutionary Act

 

From the article:

“In recent years, military servicemen and women have found themselves increasingly targeted for surveillance, censorship, threatened with incarceration or involuntary commitment, labeled as extremists and/or mentally ill, and stripped of their Second Amendment rights.

An important point to consider, however, is that under the guise of mental health treatment and with the complicity of government psychiatrists and law enforcement officials, these veterans are increasingly being portrayed as threats to national security.”


So do you still want to enlist? Do you still believe the bullshit that you are protecting ‘freedom and democracy and rights’ even as you are left without any of the aforementioned because we never had any to begin with regardless of what patriotic bullshit they fed you? Think for yourselves! It is not a novel concept. People had been doing it for years too numerous to count, but I guess since new technology has come down the pike and ‘smartphones’ have taken the place of brains as has Alexa and Siri and whatever else is out there called, a ‘personal assistant’, no one can think for themselves anymore.

Read the entire article and get a clue! Those folks who are welcomed into the U.S. military, whereupon completing their stint, they are discharged, but are also scrutinized, apparently, since they have been deemed, a threat since they know the shit that the United States government via the U.S. military has done all across this godforsaken planet.

If they can label all former service men and women as mentally ill, then who is going to take seriously what they have to say as it pertains to war crimes and other horrors that have been committed in our name and for what? ‘Freedom and democracy and rights’? Fucking shut the hell up already about that shit because it is all just bullshit. We don’t have ANY goddamn rights. We never had any rights and we never will. But go ahead! Continue to sign on the dotted line and if you don’t get your ass kicked overseas, come on back here and get your ass kicked by the very shits that sent you overseas. They know you’re fucked up in the head. They just don’t want you spouting off at the mouth about the shit they made you do in foreign lands and here on Amerikkkan soil. If they don’t kill your ass, they will make sure that you are viewed as a mentally ill extremist and the elephant in the room is that you are exactly what they say you are. Witness the headlines out today!

California shooting suspect was a decorated Marine veteran

Nov 8 (Reuters) – The man suspected of killing 12 people in a bar in a Los Angeles suburb was a decorated Marine Corp machine gunner deployed in Afghanistan who had several prior brushes with law enforcement, police and Marine officials said on Thursday.

Ian David Long, who also died in the attack late Thursday, was 28 years old and lived in Newbury Park, a prosperous suburb of Californian bungalows and tidy front lawns, about 4 miles (6.4 km) from the Borderline Bar & Grill where the shooting took place.

Long joined the Marines in 2008 and rose to the rank of corporal before leaving active service in 2013, Joseph Butterfield, a Marine spokesman, wrote in an email.

He served in the war in Afghanistan for seven months beginning in late 2010, the Marine Corp said, and was awarded multiple ribbons, commendations and medals.

Ian David Long, dead at 28, once lived in his nice prosperous suburb with nice, tidy lawns where there were no Black folks around to be bothered with and yet, he felt the need to join the U.S. military and murder people he’d never even laid eyes on over in Afghanistan. The U.S. military then promptly fills his chest with multiple ribbons, commendations and medals and upon serving his stint, he gets a discharge and now, he’s made headlines for shooting up a bar full of people he didn’t even know. What’s the matter? He can shoot some people he didn’t know over in Afghanistan, but once he comes back to Amerikkka, he must be able to turn the ‘kill switch’ off and resume a ‘normal’ life(whatever the hell that is these days) as though he had worked for the Post Office and had not been in the U.S military where he was trained to kill? You people are really stupid if you can believe that a person who has been given a weapon, was trained on how to use that weapon and was told he’d better use it on ‘the enemy’ which is whomever the U.S. government points a finger at and told to “Get to shooting!” can just resume life as he had lived it before joining the military. Yeah! He’s going to be alright! All he needs is to come back to his nice little suburb and relax and look fondly upon ALL his ribbons, commendations and medals that were bestowed on him for murdering people he didn’t even know. Don’t forget that he is also looking fondly upon that weapon that was put into his hands by the U.S. military. Well, he did, right up until either he was killed by first responders or he killed himself. I guess they’re still trying to sort that out.

When are you going to stop feeding these people some patriotic bullshit about honor and bravery and sacrifice and freedom and liberty and rights when that’s not why warmongers are sending young American teenagers into warzones? Warmongers, who represent U.S. in the halls of congress and in the White House are sending our children to their death or into mental illness diagnoses to further enrich their coffers and you stupid motherfuckers had better start realizing that fucking fact! Donald Trump’s draft-dodging ass was too smart to ever get himself drafted to fight for some bullshit, but now he wants to take umbrage with some NFL players for kneeling, claiming that they are disrespecting the troops who ‘serve’ in the most murderous military on the face of this planet that even he refused to ‘serve’ in. Another fact is that many of these mentally ill killers join the police force and are corrections officers and are tormenting and killing people over here just as they did those in foreign lands.

Even though the original article claims that the U.S. Government has declared ‘war’ on those who have ‘served’ in the U.S. military and are now deemed a threat because they know the truth in that we are fed lies, lies and damned lies about why there are over 700 military bases stationed all across this planet costing trillions of dollars a year doing fuck all, the fact of the matter is that those who ‘serve’ in the U.S. military are never ‘free’ from war even after they are discharged. They have been turned into ‘killing machines’ and there is no ‘off switch’. Both are wrong; the U.S. government and those who sign on the dotted line.

And I don’t ever want to hear that mess about how the poor people join the military as a means to escape poverty. Ian David Long does not fit that profile and so that makes a lie out of why many join the military. Maybe there are those who join in an attempt to escape poverty, but I have also read that newly enlisted grunts start out receiving wages that still qualify them for food stamps. So much for escaping poverty.

Another mass murder and this time, twelve victims and the shooter was a highly decorated marine veteran who was WHITE and who was from a prosperous suburb in California. And yet whites loudly proclaim that Black people are the problem. Are you motherfuckers really that fucking stupid, ignorant and racist? Never mind answering. I know the answer. Yes, you motherfuckers are! Suck it!

 

 

‘It’s all gone’: Tiny Florida beach town nearly swept away by Hurricane Michael

Not quite, but it’s getting there!

Now go sailing in that!

 

 Entire blocks of houses were wiped clear off their foundations. The town’s landmark El Governor Motel was gutted, its heated pool and Tiki Bar a pile of detritus, colorful beach umbrellas shredded and upended. The popular RV park looked like a junkyard. Beach houses were pulled off their pilings. Toucan’s, a favorite seafood restaurant, lay in ruin.

Hurricane Michael destroyed her home and killed the love of her life

Hours after Hurricane Michael left her home in ruins, Gayle Sweet refused to leave. Her husband’s body was still trapped in the rubble. They had just reached their front door in an attempt to take shelter, Gayle Sweet said, when an oak tree went down, smashing their home and landing on top of her husband.

Tyndall Air Force Base sustains ‘catastrophic’ damage

 

On Thursday, Air Force officials conducted the first aerial assessment of the base and found extensive damage. A report posted on the base website said the flight line is devastated and every building on the base suffered severe damage, with many considered a complete loss. In addition, the Tyndall marina, the drone runway and Tyndall Elementary School sustained severe damage.

Power and basic utilities have not been restored to the base.

Laidlaw said in the letter to staff that crews will need time to clear trees from roads and repair power lines before anyone returns.

Residents of Florida Coast Increasingly Desperate for Food and Shelter

SPRINGFIELD, Fla. — In this storm-ravaged town, where homes have been battered and even food and water are in short supply, Martha and Lindsay Brown have been sleeping in their car.

Much of the roof of their two-bedroom rental home failed when it was hit by Hurricane Michael’s 155-mile-per-hour winds, and they had no luck when they contacted the American Red Cross and the Federal Emergency Management Agency looking for help.

“They referred us to two shelters, but they were already full,” said Ms. Brown, 60, a former government worker. “There’s nowhere to go.”

Now, isn’t that a great ocean viewWhy look so despondent? Now you have almost an uninterrupted ocean view.

 

“There’s nowhere to go.” Exactly! I told you over and over that the shit that you have done is finally going to come home to roost all up your ass and you are starting to feel the effects of the shit that you have done to others. This is only the beginning. Yeah! Where you gonna go? To “higher ground?” Good luck with that because there is no higher ground. Just ask those who are flooded out in Georgia, Virginia, Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and even in Michigan because those in the Midwest are not immune to flooding. Just ask the assholes who study flood levels at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Madison, Wisconsin. They and their shitload of graphs and charts and stats are floating down the goddamn street. So, they’ll be of no help to those of you who are moaning and whining that FEMA and the Red Cross are not there to assist you and there are no availability in shelters. Your pasty ass and your houses and vehicles are in deep fucking, relentless water and there is nowhere to go. You set this shit in motion and so deal with it!

I told you worthless white assholes that all your money would not get you what you need; a heart, compassion, empathy and selflessness. For how could it when you depraved demons are the devil’s own spawn and there is nothing filling your pasty shell except heartlessness, depravity, barbarity, hatred, brutality, prejudice, self-entitlement, and an absurd sense of superiority. But your superiority is no match for a hurricane, is it? You and your shit are nothing more than pieces of flotsam, drifting around in the wind until finally settling and lying amongst the wreckage of what was once your beachfront homes, SUVs and yachts. And please, rebuild! Rebuild in the very same area and watch it all wash away, AGAIN! And for the pasty bitch whose husband got treed, get married again, get the tree out of the old trailer, remove that one and place another one in the exact same spot. Why doncha and then wish for the very best. But that is not what you are going to get.

What’s actually quite funny is the fact that even an air force base has been destroyed. Who needs ISIS or Osama bin Laden when a hurricane will do the job? How the fuck can the government fix shit for ordinary folks when the shit that’s supposed to be in place to help in disasters, needs help? I hope the whole world is watching this fucking disaster called Amerikkka get its ass kicked by a hurricane. Here we have a military installation having to be abandoned by its personnel because they are just not up to handling a hurricane and so how are they supposed to go and fuck up some people in foreign lands when they have to be evacuated from an air force base? That is just beyond absurd and we wonder why the U.S. Military is useless in warzones? This is why. If they are of no use in a natural disaster, how the hell can they defeat some camel herders in Afghanistan? They cannot. Those camel herders in Afghanistan are fucking our dumb military shits up to no end and sending them back here crazy and some more shit! “Power and basic utilities have not been restored to a military base?” Now that beats all. They mean to tell us that the same power lines that are linked to our homes are used by military bases? There is no separate power source available to military bases? There is no special material used in the construction of military base facilities that could withstand hurricane force winds? Seriously? That is down right ridiculous to know that our tax dollars are going to support the latest in technology to keep our military up to par and yet, where is the money going? Because from where I sit, it’s not doing the military any damn good when a hurricane can cause the military to get almost completely destroyed when it is the sole purpose of the military to be deployed in natural disasters as well as wars to help the general population. Those at a military air force base are somewhere getting evacuated themselves because even their shit is fucked up? That should just be beyond comprehending.

No wonder people are sitting somewhere exclaiming, “There’s nowhere to go.” There is not going to be anywhere to go and don’t even look for FEMA or the Red Cross because they are still ‘allegedly’ aiding the victims of Hurricane Florence in the Carolinas and Virginia and so you folks in Florida, sit tight, shut the fuck up and dig in for the long haul because the military has been evacuated out of Tyndall Air Force Base and so that should tell you dumb fucks something right there. If the military has to be evacuated because their shit is so fucked up, they can’t do anything with it, how the fuck do you think they are at the ready to help your pasty ass get some water and some food and what the hell else you need? Oh the moaning and wailing is beginning in earnest. “Where is the government?” “Where is the Red Cross?” “Where is my personal assistant Alexa?” “Where is my electricity?” “When am I going to be able to take a shit and flush it?” Yes indeed, so many questions and the answer. “Shut the fuck up and take a page from the homeless. Get a tent and consider yourselves on an adventure.” You pasty-faced motherfuckers like to camp out and so fucking hop to it, already! So? Your RV is lying on its side, all fucked up and some more shit. Too fucking bad! Hop in through a window, see what you can salvage. You may even be able to salvage the little toilet in there and so sit your ass down and wail good and long while you take a mean shit because since FEMA is not coming for you and the Red Cross told you to “Suck it!” you’ve got a lot of time on your hands to contemplate what you’re going to do now that ALL that your money could buy is now destroyed! Fucking HA HA HA! I’m loving it!

And since you voted for Trump, expect NO help from that orange-colored, racist piece of putrid garbage which I am sure you are smelling right about now, putrid garbage, that is. You see, while you’re sitting down in Florida and in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia and numerous other places wondering when the government is going to come and save you, Trump is busy being entertained by Kanye West and when he is not being entertained by coonhead sellouts like West, he is busying holding rallies while lauding confederate army general, Robert E. Lee as a “great general.” “Man was he a good general. And he’s finally being recognized as a great general,” Trump added. Wow! What a racist! What a bigot! Just like those of you who are sitting somewhere wondering why this fool hasn’t sent you some help. He can’t. He’s gone back in history in an attempt to resurrect General Robert E. Lee. In fact, I would not be surprised to hear that Trump intends to hold a séance at the White House in an attempt to “get in touch” with the long dead and roasting on a spit in hell Robert E. Lee who is turning on a spit right next to the one labeled, “Donald J. Trump.”

So, all you racists sitting down in Florida today screeching and wailing that you’ve got no electricity, no running water, no homes and no hope, remember that it is better to live in the past and continue to commemorate those who stood for slavery, genocide, racism, hatred, bigotry and prejudice. You know, the same shit you stand for and the piece of shit you elected to lead you and this fucked up country into what you are looking around seeing today; total destruction. That is what you ALL deserve and you ain’t finished getting what you deserve yet. Not by a long shot! I hear tell that there is yet ANOTHER hurricane forming. So, please rebuild. I do realize that you will not have had time to rebuild before this next hurricane descends on your worthless ass, but eventually get around to rebuilding because I cannot wait to see the exact same occur again. It could not happen to a more deserving bunch of racist, intolerant, right wing parasites! All hail Hurricane Michael and the many hurricanes to come! Thank you Mother Nature for doing for us what we cannot do ourselves and that is to wipe out as many entitled, privileged white trash racist bigots and their shit as you can. My sincere hope and wish is for hurricane after hurricane to descend on your worthless asses. You are no loss, none at all!

Lastly, maybe Trump will deign to throw your damn shitty asses some paper towels to assist with cleanup efforts. Isn’t that what he did to the people of Puerto Rico after two hurricanes devastated that island? Actually that is all entitled white racist trash deserves! Now suck on that!
