Biden orders missile strike on Syria 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.

Walking into a minefield 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.

EU may push for new sanctions on Russia, Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov says Moscow would consider giving up relations There's growing tensions & current brouhaha over the alleged nerve agent poisoning of Russian opposition figure Sergei Navalny who claims Russian Pres. Vladimir Putin ordered it. That's how the EU & US see it. Russia vehemently denies any involvement. The EU may ask for new sanctions on Russia. The west, EU & US have become completely anti Putin. That's the perception from western MSM given to people in the US & Europe.

Secretary of State Tony Blinken said, Our commitment to Israeli security is sacrosanct it has a free hand to do anything The US is Israel's primary defender. Israel acts w/impunity knowing it has Congress & US presidents behind it. It commits genocide against the Palestinian's in Gaza, steals their land in the West Bank evicts them as squatters then allows Jewish settlers to build illegal settlements on the stolen land. US Sec'y of State Antony Blinken said, "Our commitment to Israel's security is sacrosanct". That means Israel has a free hand.

US Iran in stalemate on returning to the 2015 nuclear deal 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.

Biden's unity pitch alongside cabinet choices of warmongers and coup inciters 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.

Storming the Capitol January 6th, Trump inciting them to take action now Congressional Dems grandstanding on the matter Since the storming of the Capitol on Jan. 6th there's been much said of what it was. Also what Trump did arousing his supporters to take action that day. For sure those who stormed the Capitol should be held to account. The rest were legally protesting. It wasn't a riot. W/a 6PM curfew & more police on the scene order was restored. Further grandstanding by Congressional Dems on the matter will only serve as gasoline on a fire.

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?

Increased US military provocations against Iran. Why now? 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?

Will the American people wake up? They're just pawns to be used and abused by the ruling elites that control the country Will the American people wake up to the reality they're just pawns to be used & abused by the ruling elite that control the country? They've been so indoctrinated w/ the land of the free & home of the brave lies to let themselves be open to an alternative narrative from the one they were taught would cause cognitive dissonance throwing the world they'd come to believe in upside down. It's hard to imagine that happening.

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 with fire 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.

Sometimes people get divorced over irreconcilable differences, that may be the case for our irreconcilable US states Biden hasn't been declared the victor yet it's become clear he's won. Trump may not concede take his case to the courts challenging results in some states but he's got little chance to overturn the election in his favor. Questions abound? Now what? Will Trump's followers gracefully accept him losing or overreact. What's clear the divisions of the people politically have never been this extreme probably since the Civil War.

The social unrest roiling the country, the perfect scenario the ruling elite want keeping the focus away from them There's is little doubt social unrest is roiling this country. Whether from the left or right it seems ready to explode. It is the perfect scenario the ruling elite want. It keeps the focus away from them. The unrest serves to distract the majority of people from realizing it's the ruling elite that needs to be their focus & be dislodged from power. Not the divisive issues of the right & left that pit them against each other.

The fundamental issue going unaddressed in this country, an electoral system corrupted by big moneyed interests These are trying times w/ COVID, a coming presidential election along w/ a fractious electorate. Yet a fundamental issue goes unaddressed in this country. An electoral system corrupted by big moneyed interests. It's the standard "pay to play" in all elections whether local, state & federal. All our other problems & issues won't be addressed adequately as long as our corrupted electoral system remains in place.

We live in the most dangerous time in world history 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.

Trump's call for a 1776 Commission a nonsensical stroll to negate the truth of our history 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?

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.

Too bad US pro sports will end its protests of police brutality. They could've had a real impact in changing the society What American professional athletes in basketball, baseball, football & hockey have done over the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin is remarkable. By shutting down their play they've taken a moral, ethical stance of unity against racial brutality by police in this country. Too bad they're all about to cave & start playing again. They could have had a real impact changing the society.
