ONE HEADLINE SAYS IT ALL ~ “Trump: ‘It Doesn’t Really Matter’ If Soleimani Was Planning ‘Imminent’ Attack ‘Because of His Horrible Past’ (It Doesn’t Really Matter If I Lied About the Reason for Killing the Guy to Kick Off More Conflict With Iran Because I Have Israel to Keep Happy)”

CHRIS THURMAN: “There’s a Sociopath in the White House”

Ascension Avatar

It is disconcerting that anyone in the country is still arguing about whether or not Trump is a misogynist, racist, xenophobe, or narcissist. He is. Actions speak louder than words, and the many things Trump has said and done throughout his life speak to these defects being true. If anything disturbs Trump’s sleep, it is the threat that sooner or later the investigative reporters he calls ‘fake news’ and government leaders and legal authorities he says are on a ‘witch hunt’ will expose his worst wrongdoings and he will finally have to pay for them. Trump is terrified by the possibility of his darkest deeds coming to light and costing him his presidency and possibly sending him to prison. Every president does wrong things. All human beings do.

‘INSANE IMPERIALIST POWER AGENDA’ ~ Caitlin Johnstone on “Trump Back To Warmongering”

Ascension Avatar

“So things are only continuing to heat up with Iran, and there is no reason to believe more eruptions like the direct military confrontation we just experienced won’t occur again, with the world perhaps getting a lot less lucky next time. Trump and his supporters are trying to claim the evasion of full-scale war as a victory for both peace and for America, but it is neither. All of the defenses of Trump’s warmongering that you’ve been seeing are premised upon the unquestioned assumption that it is both reasonable and acceptable for the United States to maintain a military presence in the Middle East, even in nations whose governments don’t want them there like Iraq and Syria. If the US didn’t insist on maintaining an enormous military presence in this one area on the other side of the planet, there would be no debate about the need for America to…
