My wife brought this little snippet about Pud's trip to my attention.

People think Queen Elizabeth II shaded Trump by wearing a tiara that’s a ‘symbol of protection against illness and evil’

I can understand why the queen of England would want to defend herself in Trump's presence and also why she sent Trump a message in the tiara, so to speak. However, expecting Mr. Trump to have even the slightest awareness of his moral failings or any vestige of the Noblesse Oblige to act on them is naive.
Quote
The man is not “disruptive” or “norm-shattering.” He is an oaf who has never listened to the word “No,” and believes rules are little more than a stick to beat others with. David Bowie was disruptive and norm-shattering, and an actual genius. Donald Trump is just another rich white American man for whom cultural and procedural restraints, not to mention laws, are an inconvenience. He doesn’t ignore them; he literally doesn’t understand why they should exist for a man of his race and station.

Probably for the same reason I am not surprised that, as per another pertinent article you just posted, despite unending gushers of red ink from the frackers since 2014 (at least), those Hydrocarbon Hellspawn beloved and Welfare Queen babied by the OIL-igarchy that runs the USA continue to have access to a Federal Reserve Funds WINDOW that provides millions and millions of dollars in loans at interest rates you and I will never be privy to (unless we are buying a gas guzzler, of course). 

I am also not surprised by the Hosting 2020 Debate on Climate Crisis "Not Practical" statement by the DNC Chair for the same reason (see below).


"Hydrocarbon Hellspawn" is a perfectly apt epithet, BTW.

None of this should surprise anyone scoring at home. Ever since the National Security State got eh USA PATRIOT Act on the books, language can be stretched to redefine "terrorism" to be whatever the USMIC wants it to be. Very convenient.

As to the democrats, the Ds have turned their back on their base (as a party of the people) and the people have returned the favor. Don't know how many replays of 2016 we need to get the point that when turnout is large, Ds win. The DNC is giving large numbers of people plenty of reason to stay home.

That's about the size of it. In view of the following overview of present global shipping activity, it is rather difficult to see the stranglehold that the OIL-igarchy has on the world being overcome any time soon:


Please feel free to pass on that epithet hither and yon. If it goes viral, the Hydrocarbon Hellspawn will lose billions of dollars of their ill gotten profits.

Here's a cartoon that sums up the OIL-igarchy's MO. If cartoons like this one go viral, decent people will benefit.

Particularly insightful is the "Of Two Minds" article. It addresses our situation quite well:


SNIPPET:

Quote
I now see a very obvious trajectory that I think applies to all empires that have been too successful, that is, empires which have defeated all rivals or have reached such dominance they have no real competitors.

Once there are no truly dangerous rivals to threaten the Imperial hegemony and prosperity, the ambitions of insiders turn from glory gained on the battlefield by defeating fearsome rivals to gaining an equivalently undisputed power over the imperial political system.

The empire's very success in eliminating threats and rivals dissolves the primary source of political unity: with no credible external threat, insiders are free to devote their energies and resources to destroying political rivals.

It's difficult not to see signs of this same trajectory in the U.S. since the fall of the Soviet Empire in 1990.

With the primary source of national unity gone, politics became more divisive. After 9/11, new wars of choice were pursued, but the claims of a mortal threat to the nation never really caught on. As a result, the unity that followed 9/11 quickly dissipated.

I have long held that America's Deep State--the permanent, un-elected government and its many proxies and public-private partnerships--is riven by warring elites. There is no purpose in making the conflict public, so the battles are waged in private, behind closed doors.

Competing nations must be just as amazed as Rome's neighbors at America's seemingly unquenchable drive to self-destruct via the in-fighting of entrenched elites and the battle for supremacy between various parasitic elites who hold the power and privilege to squander the nation's resources on needless self-destructive wars of choice and on domestic in-fighting.

I suspect this trajectory of great success leading to self-destructive waste of resources is scale-invariant, meaning it works the same on individuals, families, communities, enterprises, cities, states, nations and empires.

Indeed, the trajectory is scale-invariant.
Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him. -- Provebs 26:12

As he says, the 9/11 based wars of choice fooled most Americans for only a brief time before they realized the wars had ZIP to do with National Security/Defense and EVERYTHING to do with the M.I.C. "business model".

What he should have mentioned is that 9/11 was evidence of deep state fascists gaining undisputed power over the imperial political system (SEE: Fascist Coup d'etat). It was BECAUSE of 9/11 that those wars of choice came about. It was BECAUSE of the 2000 stolen election, aided and abetted by the Supreme (fascist) Court, that a PNAC M.I.C. caused false flag "New Pearl Harbor", planned since 1998, could become a reality.

We now know what Bush, the 2000-2008 M.I.C. Hydrocarbon Hellspawn front man, REALLY meant when he said, in August of 2001, that he was "going fishing" (SEE: two WTC shaped rectangular lures ).



Doom and Fascist Gloom aside for a moment, there is some good news. The Green Party WON in Germany That has never happened before. Expect 2016-2020 M.I.C. Hydrocarbon Hellspawn front man Trump to spew twitter vitriol on Germany with even more demonic vigor than ever before.
He had better bring a sandwich.

Burning lips and a wicked heart are like a potsherd covered with silver dross. She that hateth dissembleth with her lips, and layeth up deceit within her
The world burns. Sarah Sanders says this is fine.

Quote
She has insisted that her boss never “promoted or encouraged violence,” although Donald Trump, among many other such promotions, said of a protester who’d been ejected from a 2016 rally, “I’d like to punch him in the face.” She has outright dismissed the stories of the multiple women who have accused Trump of sexual abuse as lies. She has told reporters that she’d heard from “countless” FBI agents who were happy that Trump had fired James Comey in 2017; she would later characterize that, to Robert Mueller, as a mere “slip of the tongue.” ... ... She has deflected; she has belittled; she has eye-rolled; she has condescended; she has obfuscated; she has misled; she has lied. And she has treated it all as a battle to be won.

full article:
https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2019/06/sarah-sanders-white-house-press-secretary-resigns/591706/

Sara Sanders is an unscrupulous specialist in sophistry. IOW, she is, like Trump, the SCUM of the Earth.

Retired Turkish spy claims he warned CIA about 9/11 attacks 40 days in advance


www.dailysabah.com - The founder of the counter-terrorism department of Turkey's National Intelligence Organization (MIT) has claimed in his new book that he warned U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) about the Sept. …
https://www.dailysabah.com/turkey/2019/06/14/retired-turkish-spy-claims-he-warned-cia-about-911-attacks-40-days-in-advance

🤔 Hmmmmm. This looks like a limited hang out by the CIA, it being that the Engineers for 9/11 Truth have been carefully and systematically shredding the WTC 7 "collapse" baloney pushed by NIST. As the CIA has done since 9/11, this appears to be still another attempt to keep the horrible truth about M.I.C. responsiblity for the planning of 9/11, the execution of 9/11, and the subsequent active and continuous cover up of the truth about 9/11 suppressed.

There are two "tells" in the article that point to deliberate disinformation about both 9/11 and the criminal perpetrators of 9/11. The first one is the assumption that al-Qaida terrorists did it:
Quote
"... was informed of the attack staged by al-Qaida terrorists through a source he reveals as a Turkish drug dealer called Mustafa."
These people know how to use words to twist the truth all out of proportion. Of particular interest is the clever inclusion of the word, "staged". YES, 9/11 was staged. False Flags are always staged. But, they want you to MISassociate the word, "staged" so the term, "False Flag" does not come to mind. They want you to think "al-Qaida", not "U.S. Government False Flag", when you read the word,"staged". In order to achieve this perfidy, the sentence is formulated to point people in exactly the wrong direction, but they don't stop there.

They add some bullshit icing to that disinformation turdcake in the second "tell". That is, the "brave spy" TWICE plants the KEY disinformation word ("collapse") that was pushed by the U.S. Government from the start:
Quote
... World Trade Center collapsing. I was in the United States back then. We have watched the towers collapse ...




Yeah, right, he watched the towers "collapse", not undergo explosive demolition.

Yeah, right, al-Qaida terrorists did it, not M.I.C. fascist bastard False Flag experts in the U.S. Government in order to fund the fake "war on terror" Pentagon SWAG and bring in-our-faces Fascism to the USA through the "Patriot" act.

Yeah, right, the CIA had "language translating" problems to understand his "dire warning of al-Qaida's evil plan to huff and puff and blow the WTC towers and Rumsfeld's Pentagon accounting office away" message.

Yeah, right, the CIA had absolutely no prior knowledge of, and certainly took no active part in, the plan to plant explosives in three WTC buildings in order to 😈 "collapse" them on 9/11, fire a missile from a U.S. military aircraft at the Pentagon accounting office with the missing 2.3 Trillion dollar "accounting problem" Rumsfeld "casually mentioned" on September 10, 2001 or U.S. Air force conversion of empty passenger jets into drones to be directed from WTC 7 to hit two WTC towers.


Don't buy that book.

     
 

If you want to read a book that carefully and methodically exposes the truth of 9/11, I recommend "9/11 Unmasked".
