Trump's State of the Union address, theater of the absurd Last night Trump gave his State of the Union address best described as theater of the absurd. He first honored Juan Guaido self proclaimed pres. of Venezuela, the imposter to succeed Pres.Maduro in a US inspired coup. Never happened. Trump then honored Rush Limbaugh giving him the Pres. Medal of Freedom further tarnishing its reputation to recognize someone's distinguished service to the country. A mostly unforgettable night.

To the Palestinian's accepting Trump's "Deal of the Century" would be accepting Israel's boot on their neck forever Yesterday Trump unveiled his "Deal of the Century" proposal for a Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza & two areas in the Negev Desert to be ceded by Israel as part of the "Deal". The Palestinian's rejected it out of hand w/ protests in Gaza & the West Bank. To the Palestinian's it appears accepting it would be tantamount to accepting Israel's boot on their neck forever.

US mischief in Iranian region contributed to Ukraine airliner being downed byIran missile The latest on the Ukraine airliner downed by an Iranian missile was caused by "human error", this from Iran Pres. Rouhani. "The Iranian Republic of Iran regrets this disastrous mistake." He's called for a special probe & a special court to try the case. This AM arrests were made. Though the US is not directly culpable in the incident its complicity is its mischief in the region forcing the Iran military to be on high alert.

What Trump didn't address in speech this morning after Iranian missile strikes in Iraq early yesterday Pres. Trump delivered a speech this AM after Iran sent missiles attacking 2 separate American base facilities in Iraq early yesterday. He announced no retaliatory strikes except new sanctions on Iran. What Trump didn't address. The missile strikes were accurate. They intended to hit American base facilities yet avoid casualties. Iran showed restraint, compassion in delivering the strikes yet saw no benefit in killing anyone

It's not a good time to be an American on foreign soil because of something their government perpetrated on Iran Last night Pres. Trump ordered the drone assassination of Iran Major General Qassim Suleimani traveling in a convoy outside Iraq's Int'l airport. Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamanei promised "Harsh revenge" warning revenge awaits the criminals who stained their hands in his blood". It's not a good time to be an American on foreign soil because of something their gov't perpetrated then blamed it all on Iran.

Americans, indifferent, detached from what their government is doing in the world What characterizes many (most?) Americans is their indifference, detachment from what their gov't is doing in the world. Our wars & the atrocities we commit are hidden from public view. All done against "enemies" we must remain vigilant against to protect & defend ourselves. To challenge any of this "messaging" is denounced as fake news, conspiracy theory or Russian interference.

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.

Potty use isn't one of them.

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?

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.

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.
