"WWIII, Clinton & the Deep State"

"WWIII, Clinton & the Deep State"
by Chris Campbell

"A video has surfaced of the recent- and barely reported- attack on northern Syria by U.S.-led forces which killed 73 civilians. Twenty of the deaths were reportedly women and 35 of them were children. It’s gruesome. But if you’re someone who can stomach the reality of the situation, take a look…

Oh no you don't! Don't you dare look away, Good Citizen! 
You and I and all of us paid for this. Isn't this what you wanted?

The masses, though, are predictably silent. No #PrayForSyria. No “thoughts.” No Syrian flags above their profile pictures. Nothing. Too busy chomping on bread and fixated on the political circus, we suppose.

The media, we’ve said before, controls the narrative. And the deaths of innocent women and children at the hands of the “good guys” is not the conversation the national vocal chord quartet wants to conduct. Of course, who the good guys are depends on which side of the fence you’re standing. But just you wait until the chicken comes home to roost for this one. The parrots of American journalism will close out their Pokemon Go apps and jump on the next bloody American terror attack like flies on feces.

Journalism 101: Government reports. Journalists half-listen, then just report to you whatever the Empire said. Blah-blah-blah. Yadda, yadda, yadda. Who cares about the truth when there’s a Pikachu in the room? When the next terror attack hits the homeland, though, one side will do its best to show that the attack was not religiously motivated (and will probably blame law-abiding gun owners). The other side will do its best to prove otherwise. Neither of them will get even close to hacking at the root of the problem. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

“What’s worse,” a reader asked us yesterday, “Hillary or Trump for president? Or does it matter?” Well, in an alternate universe, we’re holding up Gary Johnson signs, rooting on the Libertarian Party. But Mr. “Feel The Johnson” has kind of killed the mood for us in this dimension. (Bake that cake!) And the camel’s spine was broken long before he called Hillary a ‘great public servant.’


Our philosophy is simple. We say, channeling P.J. O’Rourke, Don’t vote. Why encourage the bastards? There are far more constructive things you can do with your time than get caught up in the political panhandle.

1. Take care of yourself and your loved ones.
2. Stop waiting for the city planners and solve problems within your community that’ve been festering. (Fill the potholes, put up a stop sign, organize a neighborhood watch program, etc.)
3. Start a garden, plant some fruit trees, or engage in some guerilla gardening in your community.
4. Capitalize on opportunities in the marketplace. For example, help your kids set up a Poke-shop if Pokemon Go is a thing in your area and teach them about the merits of entrepreneurship and filling wants and needs in the market. The journalists will love you for it.
5. Start a business. (And accept cryptocurrencies.)
6. Make yourself as independent as possible from the crumbling grid, tainted water supply and counterfeit fiat monopoly money. 

And then, sit back and watch the show.

Evil carries within it the kernel of its own destruction. And, one way or another, this ship is going down. Rather than spitting on your neighbors, as Trump and Clinton encourage you to do, it’d be much more constructive (and a worthy investment) to make peace and fortify bonds. (Yes, Frank can be an idiot. But, in all fairness, you still haven’t returned his weed wacker.)

One thing’s for sure. Both candidates want bigger government to solve our problems, both candidates use divisive rhetoric and aren’t interested in a unified country, and both candidates want more war and more meddling in the Middle East. And we know how that’ll end up.

Hillary has already set the precedent: “Hillary didn't just vote for Iraq,” Julian Assange reminds us on the Wikileaks page. “She made her own Iraq. Libya is Hillary's Iraq and if she becomes president she will make more. I have had years of experience in dealing with Hillary Clinton and have read thousands of her cables. Hillary lacks judgement and will push the United States into endless, stupid wars which spread terrorism. Her personality combined with her poor policy decisions have directly contributed to the rise of ISIS.

Pentagon generals objected to destroying the Libyan state. They felt Hillary did not have a safe post-war plan. Hillary Clinton went over their heads. Libya has been destroyed. It became a haven for ISIS. The Libyan national armory was looted and hundreds of tons of weapons were transferred to jihadists in Syria. Hillary's war has increased terrorism, killed tens of thousands of innocent civilians and has set back women's rights in the Middle East by hundreds of years. Having learned nothing from the Libyan disaster Hillary then set about trying do the same in Syria. Hillary publicly took credit for the destruction of the Libyan state.

On hearing that the country's president had been killed by her handiwork, she became wild-eyed and gloated ‘We came, we saw, he died!.’ In the momentary thrill of the kill, she had aped, of all people, Julius Caesar.

Hillary's problem is not just that she's war hawk. She's a war hawk with bad judgement who gets an unseemly emotional rush out of killing people. She shouldn't be let near a gun shop, let alone an army. And she certainly should not become president of the United States.”

This is the same woman, need I remind you, who waxes sentimental about the need to get “unnecessary” guns out of the hands of Americans. As if someone who takes delight in death has any moral leg to stand on about gun violence.

And of course, Trump’s no better for personal liberty. But he has been very effective, so far, at destroying the Republican party. And that’s been kind of fun to watch."
