Trump's been gone since Jan 20th. Expectations rose the Biden administration would bring a breath of fresh air, restore order in US foreign affairs the crass Trump scorned in so many ways. Now we hear Biden ordered a missile strike on Syria last night. Where was his legal authority? Trump had previously ordered missile strikes on Syria. Where was his legal authority? What's changed? Nothing. The deeds & actions are the same.

That slavery of black people brought here in chains was wrong in America as well as elsewhere is a no brainer. Reparations to descendants of former slaves is being considered by the Biden administration. At least calling for a study of reparations. How would it be determined whose to pay the reparations? The thing is paying reparations for past wrongs sounds like a good idea. However It would be like walking into a minefield.

The Biden administration is demanding Iran comply w/ the 2015 JCPOA nuclear deal which Trump reneged on in 2018 before easing sanctions on the country. Iran has increased its level of enriched uranium considerably above the limits required in the 2015 deal as it sees it's no longer bound by those limitations. Iran demands the sanctions be lifted before it will return to the deal. Thus the current stalemate.

It's a couple of days into the new Biden administration & despite his call for unity in his inaugural speech the chances of Trumps voters joining in Biden's unity pitch is a naive fantasy. Trumps supporters remain angry. His 2nd impeachment voted by the House won't help. As to foreign affairs particularly worrisome are Biden's cabinet choices veteran war hawks & coup inciters. That doesn't bode well to end our endless wars.
SHARE Tuesday, January 5, 2021 Why no skepticism of governmental pronouncements in this time of the covid pandemic?
We know the US gov't lies to its people. The same w/the MSM. Iraq had no WMD. IAEA inspectors found none & former nuclear inspector Scott Ritter said all Iraqi WMD was destroyed after the Gulf war in the 1990's. Yet in this time of the Covid pandemic people who would normally be skeptical of all gov't pronouncements believe everything they're being told by gov't authorities & the MSM is the unadulterated truth about it. Why?

There's been increased US military provocations against Iran. A nuclear sub entered the Persian Gulf escorted by two guided missile destroyers. Then Israel just sent one of its subs thru the Suez Canal purportedly headed for the Persian Gulf. Earlier this month the US sent two B-52 bombers as a "deterrent" against a possible terror attack in Iraq supported by Iran. Why now all the increased military provocations against Iran?

A sound decision has been made to reopen preschools & elementary schools on Dec. 7 in New York City. CDC Director Robert Redfield says school is the "safest" place for children to be. Dr Fauci said yesterday schools ought to be opened as data reveals the virus spreading among children is rare. Why aren't schools opened nationally Including middle & high schools? Closing schools has been a travesty from the beginning.

The US may be playing w/ fire. Earlier this week the US sent a "test object" launched from the Marshall Islands in the Pacific which an ICBM successfully intercepted off the coast of Hawaii. What this test has done is reduce the time for leaders to consider the possibility of error before giving the order to launch a counter strike. Response time is the critical factor so if there is an error it can be detected in time.

We live in the most dangerous time in world history as the specter of nuclear war makes it so. During the cold war between the US and USSR there was a mutual understanding if either side initiated a nuclear war it would be annihilated in a retaliatory nuclear strike by the other. Now the US renounces nuclear arms control agreements. We're in uncharted territory, miscalculation, even an accident could bring a nuclear holocaust.

Yesterday Trump announced what he called the 1776 Commission an initiative to counter what he says is "The left wing rioting & mayhem" that "are the direct result of decades of left wing indoctrination in our schools." He would prefer the whitewashed version he himself was taught. His latest patriotic buffoonery is just another campaign ploy presumably to attract undecided voters. At this stage are there any undecided voters?
SHARE Thursday, September 10, 2020 The eviction crisis starting to happen in America
There's a Jimmy Dore video titled, "Evictions Crisis While Dems & Republicans Do Political Theater". It shows a sheriff in Houston, TX. evicting families from their apts. unable to pay the rent because they're out of work. Seeing people tossed out of their homes is rough viewing but necessary. It makes one ask what sort of country would let such a travesty happen? What's a gov't good for if it can't protect its people in need?
SHARE Thursday, September 3, 2020 Trump and Cuomo threats and accusations
Are things unraveling politically? It seems so. Trump threatens to w/hold fed'l funds to" jurisdictions that permit anarchy, violence & destruction" namely NYC, Portland, Seattle & DC. NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo responded, "Is that a threat? He can't have enough bodyguards better an army to walk down streets in New York". New Yorkers don't want anything to do w/ him." What dialogue there is has descended into threats & accusations.
