The Deep State and the Big Lie – Douma Deposed

The contra-narrative about Assad’s alleged gas attack is gaining traction as the evidence comes in. It increasingly seems probable that some folks suffocated or were overcome with smoke inhalation and hypoxia (oxygen deprivation) when buildings, tunnels and underground bunkers collapsed into clouds of dust during the final battle for Douma last Saturday. Then the desperate … Continue reading “The Deep State and the Big Lie – Douma Deposed”

The Deep State Closes In On the Donald Over Syria

Perhaps we have missed something: Like the possibility that the canyons of Wall Street are actually located on another planet several light years from earth! Otherwise, how can you explain the equipoise of a stock market sitting at the tippy-top of a nine-year bubble expansion and confronted with the potential outbreak of World War Three? … Continue reading “The Deep State Closes In On the Donald Over Syria”

America’s State Wreck Gathers Steam: The Donald’s War Cabinet and the Fiscal Doom Loop

Last week the Donald’s incipient trade war got Wall Street’s nerves jangling, but that wasn’t the half of what’s coming. To wit, Trump has now essentially formed a War Cabinet and signed a Horribus spending bill that is a warrant for fiscal meltdown. Indeed, the two essentially comprise a self-fueling doom loop which means Washington’s … Continue reading “America’s State Wreck Gathers Steam: The Donald’s War Cabinet and the Fiscal Doom Loop”

Trump’s Spur of the Moment ‘Yes’ Unmasked 68 Years of Washington Duplicity

The War Party’s Desperate Assault on ‘America First’

The major – perhaps only – redeeming virtue of the Donald’s ersatz campaign platform was his clear intent to seek a rapprochement with Russia, revamp America’s commitments to NATO and other cold war relics and to discard "Regime Change" as the core tenant of foreign policy in favor of an "America First" approach to domestic … Continue reading “The War Party’s Desperate Assault on ‘America First’”

The RussiaGate Witch-Hunt – The Deep State’s ‘Insurance Policy’

There was a sinister plot to meddle in the 2016 election, after all. But it was not orchestrated from the Kremlin; it was an entirely homegrown affair conducted from the inner sanctums – the White House, DOJ, the Hoover Building and Langley – of the Imperial City. Likewise, the perpetrators didn’t speak Russian or write … Continue reading “The RussiaGate Witch-Hunt – The Deep State’s ‘Insurance Policy’”

The FBI’s Perjury Trap of the Century

If you were a Martian visitor just disembarked from of one of Elon Musk’s rocket ships and were therefore uninfected by earth-based fake news, the culprits in Washington’s witch-hunt de jure would be damn obvious.
