Wagging the Dog - Again
Author: BobR    Date: 06/19/2019 13:26:40

In August, 1964, the U.S. claimed that North Vietnam attacked one of our naval vessels in the Gulf of Tonkin. It was used as a rationale for going to war with North Vietnam, a war which lasted 11 years (from the incident) and cost almost 60K American lives (and many more lives among the various countries of southeast Asia). It was only 40 years later when the Pentagon Papers were released where it became apparent that it was a "false flag" operation, now commonly known as "wag the dog".

That was repeated again in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks as the Bush administration drummed up a war against Iraq using fake evidence.

Let's get it going!

Good Morning and Happy Monday! I tried my best to be distracted from the ABC interview with the Dotus, but I saw and read enough exerts to know that he is a man in steep delcine, mentally.

That is saying something all things considered.

Martin's Park

On April 15, 2013, Boylston Square in Boston was devastated by a terrorist attack.

There were three immediate fatalities.


Three people were killed in the bombing. Krystle Marie Campbell, a 29-year-old restaurant manager from Medford, Massachusetts, was killed by the first bomb. Lü Lingzi, a 23-year-old Chinese national and Boston University statistics graduate student from Shenyang, Liaoning, and 8-year old Martin William Richard from the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston, were killed by the second bomb.

Welcome Back, My Friends, to the Show That Never Ends
Author: Raine    Date: 06/13/2019 12:52:51

What you are seeing is real. It's also hard to believe when viewing it from a lens of reality, and that is the very painful part to accept. This administration is the rotted head and the party it represents the decayed corpse. Let's review just the past couple of days.

Plowing the Field
Author: BobR    Date: 06/12/2019 13:21:20

It's starting to get real, folks. The first Democratic primary is about 6 months away. The first debate is just 2 weeks away. With 23 democrats running to be the Democratic candidate, it's going to be a crowded stage. Not unlike the Republican field in 2016, the party has had to set some guidelines as to who can participate. In short, if a candidate is 1% or better in the polls, or has "received donations from at least (1) 65,000 unique donors; and (2) a minimum of 200 unique donors per state in at least 20 U.S. states", then they may participate in the debate.

Good Morning.

I was musing last night that on the next President's watch, we'll be "celebrating" the 20th anniversary of the events of 9-11. We'll also be passing our 20th anniversary at war.

Longtime readers of this column will remember our old ticker-tape, and to revisit, we've been at war in Afghanistan since October 7, 2001. That's a whopping 6,456 days...or 17 years, 8 months, and 4 days.

It's Monday again and I don't have much to talk about this morning. This exclusive from WaPo is a bit astounding.
