Now Comes The Pale Green Horse

The widespread starvation of humanity has begun:

Twenty million people in four countries face famine in the next six months, but aid groups have gotten more innovative in how they address longstanding problems. Famine in South Sudan was officially declared Monday.

The fourth horse of the apocalypse is colored pale green. This is the color of Demeter, and she is the goddess of famine.

One may argue that famine has always been with us, but the number of humans (and therefore the number of potential victims) has never been greater.

And if you buy the "climate change" narrative (and what "sane" person doesn't?) a whole lotta folks are gonna starve.

Is Malaysia Lying About Kim Jong-nam ???

Can you spot what's wrong with this fairy tale?

The poison used to kill Kim Jong-nam, the half brother of the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, was VX nerve agent, which is listed as a chemical weapon, the Malaysian police announced Friday.

In a brief statement, Khalid Abu Bakar, the national police chief, said the substance was listed as a chemical weapon under the Chemical Weapons Conventions of 1997 and 2005, to which North Korea is not a party.

South Korea has suggested that the killing was the work of the North Korean government. The revelation that a banned weapon was used in such a high-profile killing raises the stakes over how Malaysia and the international community will respond.

VX nerve agent can be delivered in two compounds that are mixed at the last moment to create a lethal dose. The police say that two women approached Mr. Kim at the airport with the poison on their hands and rubbed it on his face one after the other.

For this to be true, the second woman who "rubbed it on his face" would be dead, since she then also would have had VX on her skin. And she would have died just as quickly as he did. Where is her body?

In addition, since North Korea was a client state of the USSR, it is likely they used the Soviet chemical weapon called Substance 33, which is an analog of VX, and not VX itself.

For these reasons, especially the first, I think this Malaysian assassination story is BS.

Tell Me Again Why Israel Needs Our Money ???

The Israelis are becoming fat cats:

Gas is expected to flow from the Leviathan reservoir to Israel's shores by the end of 2019. The reservoir, located about 130 km. west of Haifa, will not only boost domestic gas supplies, but will also likely serve as an export outlet for Israel's immediate neighbors and the wider Mediterranean region. 

Houston-based Noble Energy holds a 39.66% share of the Leviathan reservoir, while the Delek Group’s subsidiaries Delek Drilling and Avner Oil Exploration each have 22.67% and Ratio Oil Exploration has 15%.

Groner stressed how the development of Leviathan will not only provide Israel with a second natural gas reservoir, but will also spark a shift in momentum regarding the country’s position as an attractive place for investments.

Q: So why are we giving them $38 billion over the next 10 years?

A: They've got a few more walls to build, a few more mosques and Palestinian homes to demolish, and a temple to build.

Will The REAL Shadow President Please Stand Up ???

Many claims have been made in the recent past that we now have a "shadow president" in opposition to Trump.

#1 of course is Hillary Clinton, who just cannot believe she lost the election, and who is working hard to ensure the future is female.

#2 is VP Mike Pence, who appears to have been instrumental in the firing of General Flynn.

#3 is Obama ad-Dajjal, who has promised to do whatever he can to destroy the US. You can watch a great video about his anti-American crusade here:

#4 is Senator John McCain, who now appears to be conducting his own foreign policy and maybe even his own wars. You can read about it here:

Not long ago, if you recall, several US senators were roundly condemned for sending a letter to Iran about the nuclear deal made by Obama ad-Dajjal. You can read about it here:

https://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/10/world/asia/white-house-faults-gop-senators-letter-to-irans-leaders.html

Q: Why were the senators condemned for interfering with the president, while #1, #2, #3, and #4 above now are getting off scot-free?

A: Because the US deep state didn't want the Iran deal, but they do want President Trump overthrown.

We don't live in a democracy or a republic. This is an oligarchy bordering on a mafiocracy, with a multitude of shadow and wannabee presidents lurking in the wings. My guess is that when the dust settles, it will be Pence running the show (at the end of a very short leash).

1776 - Back To The Future

Here is an important history lesson from Judge Napolitano:

Last week, The Wall Street Journal revealed that members of the intelligence community - part of the deep state, the unseen government within the government that does not change with elections - now have acquired so much data on everyone in America that they can selectively reveal it to reward their friends and harm their foes. Their principal foe today is the president of the United States.

Liberty is rarely lost overnight. The wall of tyranny often begins with benign building blocks of safety - each one lying on top of a predecessor - eventually collectively constituting an impediment to the exercise of free choices by free people, often not even recognized until it is too late.

Here is the back story.

In the pre-Revolutionary era, British courts in London secretly issued general warrants to British government agents in America. The warrants were not based on any probable cause of crime or individual articulable suspicion; they did not name the person or thing to be seized or identify the place to be searched. They authorized agents to search where they wished and seize what they found.

The use of general warrants was so offensive to our Colonial ancestors that it whipped up more serious opposition to British rule and support for the revolutionaries than the "no taxation without representation" argument did. And when it came time for Americans to write the Constitution, they prohibited general warrants in the Fourth Amendment, the whole purpose of which was to guarantee the right to be left alone by forcing the government to focus on bad guys and prohibit it from engaging in fishing expeditions. But the fishing expeditions would come.

&&&&&&&&

This is a perilous state of affairs, brought about by the maniacal passion for surveillance spawned under George W. Bush and perfected under Barack Obama - all with utter indifference to the widespread constitutional violations and permanent destruction of personal liberties. This is not the government the Framers gave us. But it is one far more dangerous to human freedom than the one from which they seceded in 1776.

The US as we knew it, the government created by the US Constitution, is gone. The talking heads, the ADM McRavens, the morons in Hollywood and DC who might tell you otherwise are liars.

We're no longer "sliding down a slippery slope", we've gone over the edge from which there is no return. Some day soon we shall see detention camps, but they will be for citizens ... not immigrants.

US Is Not A Great Place To Be Born

Those whose still think the US is "great" ought to read this:

Life expectancy at birth will continue to climb substantially for residents of industrialized nations - but not in the United States, where minimal gains will soon put life spans on par with those in Mexico and the Czech Republic, according to an extensive analysis released Tuesday.

South Korean women and Hungarian men are projected to make the largest overall gains (with South Koreans second among males). There is a better-than-even chance that South Korean women will live to an average of 90 years old by 2030, which would be the first time a population will break the 90-year barrier, according to the research published in The Lancet.

Not so in the United States. “Notable among poor-performing countries is the USA,” the researchers wrote, “whose life expectancy at birth is already lower than most other high-income countries, and is projected to fall further behind, such that its 2030 life expectancy at birth might be similar to the Czech Republic for men, and Croatia and Mexico for women.”

We pay the MOST for health care, but have some of the poorest outcomes. Why is that?

By the way, could it be that US life expectancy equals that of Mexico because the majority of births in the US are to women of Mexican descent?

Just asking.

What Would ADM McRaven Know About Democracy ???

A man who commanded America's killer elite speaks out in defense of "journalists":

UT System Chancellor Bill McRaven on Tuesday night said President Trump’s recent description of the media as “the enemy of the American people” must be challenged and “this sentiment may be the greatest threat to democracy in my lifetime.”

McRaven, a retired U.S. Navy admiral, is former commander of the Special Operations Command. He made the comment during the inaugural event of the Communication and Leadership Speaker Series at UT’s Belo Center for New Media. McRaven, who has served as chancellor for two years, is also a UT journalism alumnus. During his lecture, McRaven said the country needs journalists now more than ever before and they must continue to hold others accountable.

Dear Bill - the only journalist we really need is Julian Assange. We could also use Snowden and Manning, but they're not journalists.

The greatest threat to democracy in my lifetime has been the US military. And most US "journalists" have functioned as your cheerleaders, even when officers like you were lying ... especially when they were lying.

So yes we need journalists, but not the kind you're talking about.
