Who's National Security? Certainly not the "American" peoples national security. What sort of hubristic 'hegemonster' fool goes around bragging to adversaries that the adversary is under attack by the silly fool? Bragging that it is electronically attacking the infrastructure of adversaries, such as Russia and China?

In recent history the Chinese were graduating 200,000 engineers a year compared to the US' 20,000. And the silly US president brags that "Silicon" is the greatest innovator or something to that effect in the entire world.

Silicon is beginning to look like the UK after the Suez Canal debacle, outdated and surpassed. Surpass. I believe there is a toilet paper with the name surpass. It makes no sense to give a toilet paper such a name and equally nonsensical but eminently more dangerous to create enemies and at the same time tell them that you are attacking them.

Here is a sample of payback retaliation for the traitors who claim to care about the US' national security.

July 30, 2019 The Capital One data breach: Time to check your credit report

July 31, 2019 Equifax data breach: Pick free credit monitoring

August 1 2019 Refunds for Global Access Technical Support customers

Amidst these events is included a July 31, 2019 pronouncement:

Treasury Designates Iran's Foreign Minister Javad Zarif for Acting for the Supreme Leader of Iran

"Javad Zarif implements the reckless agenda of Iran's Supreme Leader, and is the regime's primary spokesperson around the world. The United States is sending a clear message to the Iranian regime that its recent behavior is completely unacceptable," said Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin. "At the same time the Iranian regime denies Iranian citizens' access to social media, Foreign Minister Javad Zarif spreads the regime's propaganda and disinformation around the world through these mediums."

The US sanctions regime which once trigger derision is now emerging to cause almost uncontrollable outbursts of laughter with each new twit.

The statement is full of psychological projecting. Of course this is the trademark of these monsters.

Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin, a former member of the Matt Taibbi's aptly named Vampire Squid of the Goldman Sachs clan and a former blood sucking owner of OneWest a financial firm that foreclosed on poor and mostly black mortgagors in California and then waltzed through Donald Trump's Human Resources Department like so many other cretins with the imprimatur of the commander in chief, straight to the Secretary of the Treasury chair.

From ABC's, What he used to do : Mnuchin was a partner at Goldman Sachs, where he worked for 17 years, and left the firm in 2002. He then founded RatPac Dune Entertainment, which produced "Avatar" and the X-Men movies, among others. In 2009 he organized investors (including top Hillary Clinton donor George Soros) to buy the failed housing lender IndyMac and renamed it OneWest. OneWest was sold to the CIT Group in 2015. He also worked for Soros Fund Management, a firm founded by Soros.

Also from ABC's, "Something you may not know about him": Mnuchin was a member of the exclusive Skull and Bones secret society at Yale, as were George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush and John Kerry.

How do you like him now?

Will no one rid the republic of these unending scourges?

Now that I am in Massachusetts, I am discovering that there are still no left wing radical extremists to be found. That was an arrogant statement on my part especially since I was not looking for any.

This should be that last go around for proof that the system is so badly rigged that only a revolution can will suffice.

Imagine a US national legislature that has the nerve to pass a law saying that I cannot criticize an internationally recognized murderous war criminal zionist entity.

We have election security further eroded by collusion between Fatherland Security and Israeli intelligence complete with US Senate obstruction to do nothing about gaping election tampering holes.

Oh, I am sorry. This was supposed to be about the ruling elites use of the National Security Hoax and how it is backfiring not against the elites but against the people. Just as the CHAOS intended.

Foreign Minister Javad Zarif is a very intelligent moderate. He was the one pushing the JCPOA against the advice of hard-liners. The hardliners (actually proved to be realists) let Zarif gamble on the trustworthiness of the US.

The US proved again to be untrustworthy embarrassing Zarif. As a result he honorably offered his resignation but President Hassan Rouhani did not accept it.

Now the US humiliates Zarif. This cuts off any chance of diplomacy. It shows that the US is a bully and not interested in diplomacy.

The U.S. has actually "sanctioned" Zarif. They stated he would not be accepted as the point of negotiation in any new talks. Obviously, diplomacy is not the goal of the U.S., but you have to wonder at this point, what is?

It's like watching a bunch of children forming cliques at the playground.

It took me a minute to realize what the figurine in the picture was supposed to be. It's so "phallic". :)

I was looking for something that could stand in as a putrid and foul blood sucking monster. I just realized it is sucking from a Taco beverage cup! Phallic is good since these monsters are also dirty slimy richards..

If you are not a part of the debt-slave populace consider yourself fortunate, for when the SHTF over the next year the $ will be about half today's value; which is not all that good.


Having a passport will not provide you with the "freedom" to travel as you please, with more places becoming hostile to American's. My wife is visiting family/friends in Chengdu now and was told to not bring any clothing that can be identified as a US brand. As the BRI develops more countries are signing onto its economic benefits and its citizens are lifted out of poverty, than US policies of wanton death and destruction the past 40 years that have resulted in toxic waste left from inhumane weapons upon innocent victims, while seeking to destroy former Reagan "Freedom Fighter's" now relabeled "Terrorist's."


Like that cell phone that keeps tabs on your where-a-bouts 24/7/365, tRump policies are making some places in the world less inviting, to the point in another decade or so, that Border wall will be more for keeping people in than out!

An add'l tidbit.

Kamala Harris was CA Atty. Gen. when evidence of Mnuchin's mortgage shenanigans (crimes) reached her desk. She stated there was enough to begin proceedings....and then didn't. The matter was dropped.

Now they are both DC hotdogs. Go figure.

General take: our country is finished. By psychopathic, sadistic design.

Don't worry, be happy. (slightly snide) :)

A predator sent to the punk ass lying and stealing Trump regime...It's so sad that laughter is the only salve. How can the ruling elites be any more crass than to put a lawbreaking thief in the US Secretary of Treasury chair? And what did the slimy Donald and slick democrats do?

It's my great turning inward underway. The corruption seems so deep, layer upon layer. I am mired and drowning, two fingers up, going under. How can one not despair? I have seen clips of the debates and wonder who found these people to audition to become the new figurehead leading the great western corruption? Kamala Harris - how sad. And why did Tulsi signoff on the unconstitutional anti-BDS bill? Who is going to pay for vote?

I am screaming in my heavily padded mind.

I am screaming, too, my friend. I guess the padding is so nobody else can hear. Why should they want to hear? So depressing.

I know the direction to take is inward, ... like 'everybody's talkin' about it'. But I'm not quite sure how to do that or what to look for.

Fearless Quiet, maybe? Create your own reality?

Abandon all further information input and go swim with the dolphins? Hmm

I'm too old and broken for that now. So, somedays I step out back with my old dog and caress the tree; grateful there is a tree. Hope he feels the love.

You are not alone, Shad. I share the fury and the grief.

I worked in China for 10 years at medical schools related to hospital's my great great grandfather built between 1866 - 1901 and I can attest that China graduating 200,000 engineers is pure BS! These are NOT western accredited license holding engineers in their fields of specialty, but would be considered engineering techs.

Many bridge, building, tunnel, and road alignment collapses in China , with little accountability/punishment of party members.


I'm not a medical doctor nor have a PHD, but I understand medical terminology, tools and other aspects of the medical fields. My last teaching job was at China's #2 medical school Huaxi (West China School of Medicine), and my supervisor bloviated how "smart" the student's were, yet over half failed my final exam, not identifying a stethoscope as a listening device, a sphygmomanometer was a blood pressure gauge and many other very simple medical questions. The department lost face to the lowei and caused quite a fuss.


Trump, his family and their type took their businesses to China to increase profits, exploit labor and circumvent EPA laws; that now enable the PRC/CCP to threaten US economic/military interests and Taiwan. tRump's MAGA is a farce accept to his mentally-challenged base who don't realize King Con Don and the GOP have done more to destroy the USA in 2.5 years than the globalist stooge Obama did in 8. tRump can claim to not be a globalist, but everyone in his Cabinet is and this is why the agenda still moves forward.


The $ is set to collapse over the next year and they are hoping a war with Iran can be blamed for it, but so far it remains calm and a far more reliable source of information from this strategic area than Twitter-Twit tRump tweets and western MSN.


Please participate in the BDS movement, for one can be Anti-Israel "Greater Israel" agenda, support the Palestinian's and

honr the Nakba and not be an anti-Semite.

Great comments Stan - keep on keeping on. In regards to the Chinese graduating more engineers specifically electrical engineers, I am afraid that I don't have the original source that planted that idea in my head. DuckDuckGo for a comparison unless that search is piggy backing on google. Anyway the dark side is not completely formed yet so search, search search before the memory hole is reformatted.

I have a problem with the "tech" competition underway by Russia and China against the west particularly 5G and AI. When did we forget that we are supposed to be the masters of tech not the subjects of tech...in the hands of misguided competicrats? Cooperation must be the basis for human evolution and the full acceptance of responsibility for stewardship of this wonderful gift of a planet. Otherwise act as if there is no other reality and will our existence into realizing that infinity is now. Otherwise we shall join perhaps the billions of other civilizations that are not going to the next level.

"Will no one rid the republic of these unending scourges?"

No one will but everyone can. All we need is to unify as one unstoppable voting bloc, and everything will change. There are 235 million people eligible to vote in the U.S. and half of them (by definition) are in the bottom half of the economy. That's 117 million people now getting the shaft by Mnuchin and his ilk. Less than 120 million voted in the 2016 election, meaning 65 to 70 million can decisively decide the outcome. Truth is, most of those 117 million didn't vote. But if they actually have a reason to participate, who's going to tell me we can't assemble 70, 80 or 90 million voters from the working and middle classes to "rid the republic of these unending scourges"?

What I see constantly now is that many activists -- except for niche identity politics types -- see the situation as hopeless and have given up. They don't look at these numbers and realize what enormous potential there is, if we just get our message together and go to work.

In my opinion you are correct John. It is a matter of what will be the last straw before all of us are motivated to begin work on undoing the damage. The ruling elites have great organization and "talented" departments to carryout their fugue.

Perhaps the great trashing of the ballot once again will be sufficient for all of us who believe in "democracy" or the process of representative government to finally realize that They are not going to play by civilized rules. We know they are liars, cheats, thieves and god dammit...horrific cold blooded murderers. You really think they are going to allow a vote to defang them? NO!! If we must continue to give our lives to these mofos, we'd damn better make sure we take one of them with us.
