Have we lost sight of what's important? What to make of some things lately in the MSM, internet & social apps i.e. This thing over sexuality. That designating a men's & women's room discriminate against transsexuals use of the rest room of their preference. Now there shouldn't be discrimination against anyone however they want to depict themselves. But is choice of a potty a critical issue? There are real problems facing this country. Potty use isn't one of them.

It's time for European nations break free of the US yoke around their necks since the end of WWII France, the UK & Germany need to uphold the 2015 nuclear agreement w/Iran despite the US w/drawal from the deal last yr. Iran has begun enriching uranium beyond what it agreed in the 2015 deal. Iran has said it would return to the deals limits if the Europeans uphold their end of the deal. They are independent sovereign nations. It's time they acted like it & break free of the US yoke around their necks since the end of WW II.

What if Dems impeachment vendetta against Trump backfires and gets him re-elected. Who will they blame for that? The Dems have thrown down the gauntlet, using Trump's phone call to Ukraine Pres. Zelenskyy in July as the basis for his impeachment. Trump is horrible, a self important narcissist who conducts policy by tweets which often contradict what he tweeted previously. The Dems have been apoplectic since Trump was elected. But what if their impeachment vendetta backfires & Trump gets re-elected. Then who will they blame for that?

Those militia's will move from the border area deeper into Syria. The agreement solidified Russia as a key player diplomatically as well as militarily in Syria.

Dems pushing for Trump's impeachment reeks with hypocrisy The political saga of Dems pushing for Trump's impeachment reeks w/ hypocrisy. Sure the "Donald" is corrupt but so are those gunning for him. We know the majority of Dems & Repubs are in the pocket of the big corps, special-interest groups, Israeli Lobby that underwrite the politicos electoral campaigns. So let's spare us the Dems' uproar over Trump's phone call to Ukraine Pres. Zelensky.

Bolton hasn't faded into the sunset, the MSM just embraced him as a new found friend Somehow one knew Trump's former NS Adviser John Bolton wouldn't just fade into the sunset. He was @ the Center for Strategic & Int'l Studies blasting Trump seeking a middle ground in N. Korea saying Kim Jong-un couldn't be trusted & a war was necessary. Incredibly the MSM lapped it up embracing Bolton as a new found friend. Embracing the war monger Bolton? The best way to put it, "The enemy of my enemy is now my friend".

There has never been a time clear headed diplomacy is necssary yet so lacking in "official" Washington Yemen's Houthi's recently sent drone missiles targeting Saudi Arabia's oil pipelines & refineries. W/out evidence the US blames Iran & threatens military action against them. Iran rejects the accusations but warns any military violation of Iranian airspace will result in a retaliatory strike. Clear headed diplomacy is necessary. Yet there has never been a time such a lack of this capacity is @ hand in Official Washington.

Today's snap election in Israel, a referendum on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whether he remains or is booted out Today there's a snap election in Israel. The reason: Israel had a gen'l election in April but Benjamin Netanyahu's party didn't capture a majority in the Israeli Knesset to form a new gov't as no minority party would agree w/ Netanyahu to form a coalition gov't requiring today's snap election. Israel being a parliamentary type gov't the people don't directly elect a new PM. But make no mistake. This a referendum on Netanyahu.

Bolton finally gone from the scene Geopolitically, good news is rarely heard these days. Yet yesterday qualifies as one of those days. Trump's nat'l security advisor John Bolton was finally gone from the scene. Since last April when Trump named him as nat'l security advisor there's hardly been a day where news of Bolton brought any sense of relief some new US misadventure advocated by him was about to happen. Now he'll just be a sour footnote in history.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu knows he can act with impunity In 3 weeks Israel holds new elections. Last April's elections produced no majority. No new gov't could be formed but Benjamin Netanyahu remained the PM till next month's election. He's become more belligerent since April, annexing the Golan Hgt's, sent missiles into Syria, drone strikes into Lebanon & air strikes into Iraq. It's an old tactic riling up the public's natl'ism. Let's hope teh tactic fails & a new PM gets elected.

Democrats focus on Trump won't sway his base. It might even broaden it and get him reeleted next year On Sunday Rep. Illan Omar tweeted, "Could we take back our democracy if 1.7 million Americans marched for it?" The target & marching for it against Trump by connecting w/ Hong Kong protests. What Omar & Dems don't point out the original protests were over a bill allowing the extradition of criminal suspects to mainland China has been suspended. The protests are now to incite violence & get China to shut down the protests.

The ruling elite and its control of America There is a deep undercurrent roiling this country splintered & disconnected. There is no mutual respect between right & left. Too busy squabbling. A perfect illustration of divide & conquer tactics by the ruling elite. One thing right & left can agree on. Our electoral system is completely corrupt & controlled by the ruling elite. They are the beneficiaries. As long as that system remains in place nothing will change.

Any connection between "official" Washington's hatred's and violence with the hatred of those committing mass shootings? With the mass shootings in El Paso & Dayton it might be appropriate to consider a source behind them; namely hatred. Hatred of immigrants, minorities, blacks, browns, Muslims, a boss on the job, a teacher. What about official Washington's hatred of its enemies & the violence it commits against them? Could there be a connection between Washington's hatred's & violence & the hatred's of those committing these mass shootings?

Trying to remain sane in the midst of a surreal "official" state of chaos Persuading the propagandized. That's what some of us attempt in countering what the gov't & its MSM claim as fact. Many people seem closed off from anything that runs counter to what they've come to believe. Unless one is open to other views there often is outright resistance. Now we have domestic & foreign policy by tweet from a Pres. Trump. It's like trying to remain sane in the midst of a surreal "official" state of chaos.

The hope, Trump has a moment of lucidity and avoids war with Iran Hardly a day goes by w/out an incident involving Iran. The latest had Iran intercepting two British tankers in the Strait of Hormuz detaining one then releasing the other. Other incidents have occurred. The US claimed it shot down an Iranian drone flying too close to a US Navy ship while the Iranian's denied any of its drones were missing. The worry is a miscalculation of the intent of an adversary unleashing a new hot war.

Why Americans remain in denial over what their country is doing in the world Why do many/most Americans seemingly remain in denial or oblivious to what their country has done or is doing in the world? Possibly to avoid cognitive dissonance, a psychological term indicating a "mental discomfort experienced by a person...triggered by a situation in which a person's belief clashes w/ new evidence perceived by the person". So they avoid the new evidence that could turn their world upside down.

The F-35, Design flaws mean plane might suddenly tumble out of control and crash It shouldn't come as a surprise Lockheed Martin's F-35 stealth fighter continues to have problems. The latest revelation. If a new F-35 "has to climb @a steep angle to dodge an enemy attack, design flaws mean the plane might suddenly tumble out of control & crash". Yet "Pentagon officials plan to declare an end to the testing phase of the F-35's development sometime in late 2019 & clear the fighter for mass production."
