There is really nothing new on the political front since the orchestrated  potentially illegal hit tape on Donald Trump came out. 

As we explained yesterday, although quite Machiavellian, there is not two party system in America other than the “Haves” and the “Have Nots.” Since we are not in the former, the behaviors of the former (which include Bush, Clinton, and other clans) are dressed up in order to perpetuate the myth of “free choice.”  Freed as long as from the royalty class.

As the sorry case of Bernie Sanders proved to anyone paying attention, the “Haves” own the democratic party, as well as the republicans. So when thinks like Paul Ryan refusing to support Trump, or the Bush hit tape on Trump is released, the commonality is not political in the partisan sense. It is more on the order of putting on a “good enough show” to keep 320-million people under the ruling thumb of the One Percenters for another 4-years.

Then the racket starts all over again.

But in the meantime, a global lack of distractions is problematic for the sold-out Mainstream Press. They are now in the unenviable position of having to shill other wrongful causes while the final act of the Circus sets up for November.

Global (*Warming) Nonsense

Still think Global Warming is anything other than a scheme to make up additional layers of government, increase taxes, and shrink our consumptive lifestyles?

Read on.

An article this morning which happened across Fox News Travel is a dandy example of how cognitive dissonances are included in much of what we read in media reports:

Experts warn luxury Arctic cruises of Titanic-style disaster.”

I don’t have any argument with the main thrust of the story. It’s the embedded subliminal programming that bother me. Read the following two sentences and see how it rolls – I bolded the dissonance for you to see it more clearly:

“The ship, owned by American operator Crystal Cruises, traversed an isolated route first navigated by Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen in 1903.

Although climate change means the region is iceberg free in summer, two shipping executives fear a disaster unless guidelines are brought in to protect passengers and the environment…”

Hold the phone.

If Man-made Climate Change is what causes the area to be ice-free, how the hell did Amundsen make his 1903 voyage?

This is how the gates of perception are left unguarded. You think you’re reading a story about travel, but embedded in it is yet-another globalist pitch for “global warming” on the slope of your perception threshold.

It all becomes clear when you remember that Illinois state senator Barrack Obama earmarked money to start up Al Gore’s Carbon Exchange back when and you can see how global warming is more a political agenda that reality.

Just last year it was reported that a “Ship Abandons Global Warming Research Due to EXCESSIVE ICE.”

Yet, predictably, in the hurricane mess we went through as last week’s massively over-hyped event, again government and environmental shills were anxiously selling hurricanes as caused by (man-made) climate change.

Once again, a sober review of facts, you see things like massive Cat 3 and larger hurricanes from the 1800s and earlier. Made-made? About the only thing manmade is the public relations pitch – and efforts to monetize climate as another “emergency” that will require breaking into your wallet for money more for? Government!

I reckon between $200 billion and $1-trillion has been turned over due to the phony “climate war.”

Whether we were driving cars or walking, the sea level would still be rising. It’s what happens after Ice Ages if you read a little bit. And the rate of warming goes through a knee due to the phase change of melting water such as in Greenland.

Sheesh. There;’s a grumpy old man for you.

So as evidence of a lack of “real news” let’sa look at some useful stuff, shall we?

Turncoat Ryan

Remember, I’ve been saying for months that Paul Ryan is not a constitutional republican in the Abe Lincoln sense?

Well, here we go: “Did Paul Ryan’s Top Advisor Leak the Trump Tape?”

Not sure, but I still think release of the tape might qualify as a felony due to California’s two-party recording law. But what’s something as weak as a law when you’re dealing with politics and turncoats, huh?

Gangs of all ztripes ignore the rule of law.

Saudis Still Screwing Us

Saudis, along with Qatar, are funding Islamic State t errorism. No surprise – since ISIS is a follow-on to al Qaeda, and as we’ve explained their role is to get a Saudi pipeline into Europe.

But this latest revelation must be true since it’s in the latest batch of leaked Hillarymails.

Doers it excuse the lame president pissing away $1.7 billion to the Iranians? No, but we find it odds that Hillary’s key assistant’s role in a pro-Iranian publication is forgotten while Trump’s locker room banter replays endlessly by shill media.

So with no real finance news, the market set to give up part of Monday’s illusory gains (easier with the bond market closed), here are the kinds of stories I would label “filler news…”

The One Story that Matters

The Western headlines are to the effect that Putin Cancels France Trip After President Hollande Accuses Russia of War Crimes in Syria.

The back story: Putin was planning to go to France to be on hand at the opening of a new Orthodox Church there. The French as sitting on a powder-keg of militant Islamists and this is the kind of footwork that will likely lead to a BIG SHOOTING WAR after the election.

As explained in the Saudi story above, ISIS is working the Saudi oil deals and those are in the face of Russia…and France is just blowing in the wind.

We would likely be in flashing nukes now except that anything Putin does now would be described as an attempt to disrupt the American election. Faced with 4 or 8 more years of of “regime change madness” in the US State Department by the nasty nest of Neocons who managed to slither from Bush republican to Obama democrat, Putin may simply decide to “go for it” over Syria.

Which is a war invented by the Nobel Prize scammer. Right here on Democratic Underground the headline is “Bush only started 2 wars. Obama started 3, and kept the other 2 going.

Gotta love what he’s done for race relations, too.

No, Obama should give back the Nobel and apply for a different prize for his mantel.

An Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, perhaps.
