‘CANCER vs. HEART DISEASE’ ~ Caitlin Johnstone on “Trusting MSM, The CIA, QAnon & ‘The Plan'”

“Mainstream media outlets which publish anonymous intelligence claims with no proof are just publishing CIA press releases disguised as news. Imagine if a compulsive liar who you know for a fact constantly deceives people in order to hurt and exploit them told you your neighbor is going to kill you if you don’t kill him first, and you go and kill your neighbor immediately. That’s how dumb believing the CIA is. This is pretty much the US State Department’s entire job in modern times, by the way. That’s why almost everything that comes out of Mike Pompeo’s mouth is geared toward manipulating the international narrative in some way. It’s literally his entire job. Wanting Biden because he’s not Trump is the same as wanting cancer because it’s not heart disease. The only fun thing about Biden winning will be getting to ask QAnoners ‘So… was this part of The Plan?'”

‘WE ARE BETTER THAN OUR POLITICS’ ~ James Mattis on “In Union There Is Strength”

“When I joined the military, some 50 years ago, I swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution. Never did I dream that troops taking that same oath would be ordered under any circumstance to violate the Constitutional rights of their fellow citizens — much less to provide a bizarre photo op for the elected commander-in-chief, with military leadership standing alongside. Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people — does not even pretend to try. Instead he tries to divide us. We are witnessing the consequences of three years of this deliberate effort. We are witnessing the consequences of three years without mature leadership. We can unite without him, drawing on the strengths inherent in our civil society. This will not be easy, but we owe it to our fellow citizens; to past generations that bled to defend our promise; and to our children. We must reject and hold accountable those in office who would make a mockery of our Constitution. Our American answer is ‘In Union there is Strength.’ We must summon that unity to surmount this crisis — confident that we are better than our politics.”

When I joined the military, some 50 years ago, I swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution. Never did I dream that troops taking that same oath would be ordered under any circumstance to violate the Constitutional rights of their fellow citizens — much less to provide a bizarre photo op for the elected commander-in-chief, with military leadership standing alongside.

We must reject any thinking of our cities as a “battlespace” that our uniformed military is called upon to “dominate.” At home, we should use our military only when requested to do so, on very rare occasions, by state governors. Militarizing our response, as we witnessed in Washington, D.C., sets up a conflict — a false conflict — between the military and civilian society. It erodes the moral ground that ensures a trusted bond between men and women in uniform and the society they are sworn to protect, and of which they themselves are a part. Keeping public order rests with civilian state and local leaders who best understand their communities and are answerable to them.

Instructions given by the military departments to our troops before the Normandy invasion reminded soldiers that the Nazi slogan for destroying us…was ‘Divide and Conquer.’ Our American answer is ‘In Union there is Strength.’ We must summon that unity to surmount this crisis — confident that we are better than our politics.

Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people — does not even pretend to try. Instead he tries to divide us. We are witnessing the consequences of three years of this deliberate effort. We are witnessing the consequences of three years without mature leadership. We can unite without him, drawing on the strengths inherent in our civil society. This will not be easy, as the past few days have shown, but we owe it to our fellow citizens; to past generations that bled to defend our promise; and to our children.

We must reject and hold accountable those in office who would make a mockery of our Constitution. At the same time, we must remember Lincoln’s “better angels,” and listen to them, as we work to unite.

Only by adopting a new path — which means, in truth, returning to the original path of our founding ideals — will we again be a country admired and respected at home and abroad.

‘EXISTING BY VIRTUE OF DECEIT’ ~ Noam Chomsky on “The Most Vicious Dogs, and Ominous Weapons, I Have Ever Seen”

The president, whose malice knows no bound, has been exploiting the focus on the pandemic to pursue his service to his prime constituency, great wealth and corporate power.

One method is eliminating regulations that protect the public but harm profits. In the midst of an unprecedented respiratory pandemic, Trump has moved to increase air pollution, which makes COVID-19 far more deadly, so much so that tens of thousands of Americans may die as a result, the business press reports. As usual, deaths are not randomly distributed: “Hardest hit are low-income communities and people of color,” who are forced to live in the most dangerous areas.

For two crucial months, U.S. intelligence and health officials tried to capture the attention of the White House, in vain. Finally, Trump noticed — possibly when the stock market crashed, it has been reported. Since then it has been chaos.

Trump’s decisions accord with the judgment of his favorite pundit, Rush Limbaugh, to whom he awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. He instructs us that science is one of the “four corners of deceit”, along with academia, media and government, all of which “exist by virtue of deceit”.

Trump and associates are already pushing that scam energetically, not for the first time.

The guiding maxim of the administration was articulated more eloquently by Franco’s leading general in 1936: “Down with intelligence! Viva death!”

Republicans overwhelmingly have faith in the president, no matter how much his actions harm them. His god-like image is amplified by those who surround him, thanks to his successful campaign to get rid of everyone but fawning sycophants, like the second-in-command, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who muses that God may have sent Trump to earth to “save” Israel from Iran. Pompeo’s fellow evangelicals, the largest base of Trump supporters, likely agree. And they hear much the same generally from the Republican Party, which has virtually abandoned any shred of integrity and abjectly worship him whatever he does. Much the same is true of his media echo chamber. The 2nd Amendment has not the slightest relevance, but Trump knows what buttons to push. Let’s kill more Americans, not just Yemenis and Africans, if it will improve my electoral prospects. “Down with intelligence! Viva death!”

He’s quite competent in pursuing his primary goals: enriching the very wealthy, enhancing corporate power and profit, keeping his base in line while he stabs them in the back, and concentrating power in his hands by dismantling the executive branch, and so intimidating congressional Republicans that they timidly accept almost anything.

It is an impressive achievement.

Not surprisingly, Trump and his minions have been thrashing around desperately to find some scapegoat to blame for his crimes against Americans, oblivious to how many more people he slaughters.

Another four years of the Trump malignancy will sharply increase the difficulties of dealing with this impending catastrophe — even if we escape the threat of terminal nuclear war that Trump is escalating by dismantling the arms control regime that offered some protection and racing to develop new and more dangerous means of destruction that undermine our diminishing security. It’s not out of the question that in Trump’s hands, the impending crisis may come about very soon.

Trump has one overriding concern, his own welfare: How can I use this tragedy to enhance my electoral prospects by firing up the most racist and violent components of my voting base? His natural instincts call for violence: “the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons, I have ever seen.” And send in the military to teach the “scum” a lesson they’ll never forget.

All further signs that the country is in deep trouble — and in the light of U.S. power, the world with it.

PAUL ROMANO: “Trump Supporters Also Suffer From Trump Derangement Syndrome”

A longer video than usual, Paul starts kicking into ‘Trump’ gear about 18 minutes in… the part of the video that ‘brings it all home’ begins around 1:06…

 

Comments from the video thread:

 

 

“Glad you’re addressing my question about POTUS and the hand signs he does.”

 

 

“Why is Trump pushing for 5G??? That will kill even the damn animals? He is not stopping the chemtrails that are loading us up with heavy metals is he??? He is not stopping Monsanto from poisoning the hell out of our food supply is he??? Raise your expectation for a leader out of the damn toilet!!!”

 

 

“These Trump lovers are absolute aliens to humanity. They don’t want to consider anything that doesn’t completely praise Trump like he is Christ. Trump! A life long heathen with the most heinous personality. And every wrong or questionable behavior he commits is 100 percent ignored. I don’t even think these people are worth attempting to reason with anymore.”

 

 

“Trust the plan, sit on your couch, clap while the swamp changes management and brings in communism right before your eyes”

 

 

“I think we forget that the majority of Q people just started to ‘wake up’…”

 

 

“Q is for those who have no I.Q.”

 

 

“I used to be a Q-tard myself. The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.”
