The War on Truth, The Lies of War

Terrorism 101
Definitions of terrorism. … In general, terrorism is classified as: the use of violence or of the threat of violence in the pursuit of political, religious, ideological or social objectives and. acts committed by non-state actors (or by undercover personnel serving on the behalf of their respective governments)
For those of you following the drone attacks on the Saudi oil facilities let me explain a few things to you.

Part of being a terrorist is causing death, destruction, carnage, then being able to brag about the damage they caused. Publicity, not anonymity is what these groups crave.

There is a certain code among terrorist groups. For instance, you don’t see two different organizations take credit for the same act. There are a few reasons for this. 1) As mentioned, the responsible group want the credit for the act. 2) Claiming acts one hasn’t committed is against the code. Not to mention to do so means gaining a new enemy. 3) Unless a group is engaged in fighting another one on one, their terrorism isn’t a competition. Isis and The Taliban are enemies, for instance. If ISIS blows up a café in some residential area, you will never see ISIS take credit – only to be closely followed by The Taliban claiming, “No No No, it was US! We blew up the café!” It doesn’t work that way.

Which brings us to the weekend bombing of the Saudi oil facilities. Immediately the Houthi rebels in Yemen took responsibility. You see the Houthis have been in a civil war against a Saudi led military coalition. It may sound like basic Middle East stuff but if you look closely into the war torn areas such as Yemen, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Russia, who’s backing who and so forth it gets much deeper and more complicated.

Getting back to the attack and specifically Saturday when it happened in particular:

Normally what happens at that point is the American media start teaching some and reminding others who the Houthis are and why they would send weaponized drones to take out Saudi Arabian oil facilities. However, before they could open up their Mac Books and start reporting, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo publicly announces that Iran staged the attack. He doesn’t note any evidence. Just says it. While flipping through the Sunday morning news shows I noticed plenty of talking heads from the White House being interviewed. The host acted as if Pompeo’s claims were gospel and focused all of their questions on Iran and what the United States would do to respond. All of a sudden, there is no more talk of the original gangsters or the responsibility they publicly admitted to. There were no questions about evidence, just response.
Since then 45 has tweeted accusing Iran as well. First he claims to know it. On Tuesday September 17, he says in so many words, “I’m going to wait for the Saudi government to tell me who THEY think did it.” Why? Saudi Arabia says, “Yea we’ll be able to tell you by tomorrow.” The next day it’s “Yep it was Iran!” That was quicker than the Cavanaugh investigation conducted by the FBI!

Now ask yourself; have you heard from the CIA, FBI, Homeland Security, The Department of Defense? No! Just 45, his sycophants and Saudi Arabia. The same Saudi Arabia that chopped journalist, Jamal Khashoggi into little pieces at their embassy and lied about that. The narrative continues and the news agencies aren’t asking any questions.

So why would 45 want to paint a false narrative?

The first thing that comes to mind is 2020 is an election year. Starting a war give him better odds of re-election. Not to mention he has already made plenty of statements indicating that he is not willing to leave The White House regardless of election results. He’s been trying to start it with Iran since he was sworn in by breaking the Obama nuclear arms agreement.

And let’s not forget that just a couple days before the attacks John Bolton turned in his resignation as National Security Advisor. Bolton was often called a Hawk. But that was during the Bush years. Though he talks tough, he never seemed too eager to start a military conflict with Iran.

And what does Saudi Arabia get out of a US war with Iran? Saudi Arabia and Iran are enemies. So they would love to see the US do their bidding. Last but not least, it’s kind of embarrassing to admit that a group of rebels took out a nice chunk of your oil supply.

I’m not a big conspiracy guy but history shows shit happens all the time. Keep your proverbial heads on a swivel cause this is some bullshit and the way the American media is falling in line instead of asking questions, the distraction toward war is on.

BB&G C-Notes ~ Mid Week Musings

From the Good News/Bad News Department

Good News – Eric Holder Jr. will accept the post of Attorney General in the Obama administration.  This means we won’t be seeing any more Jena 6 episodes where local prosecutors and judges run wild with making up the law as they go in trying to take the country back to Jim Crow.  Holder who has a long history of working in the big time, was appointed to an Associate Judge position by Ronald Reagan and was deputy Attorney General under Clinton.  He’s also the son of immigrants from Barbados.  I am confident he will bring some justice back to the justice department: where in previous years the Ashcroft and Gonzales terms fired many great lawyers to satisfy Bush’s personal agenda of government by dictatorship.

Bad News – With the approval of Barack Obama the Democratic Caucus allowed Joe Lieberman to retain his post chairing the Senate Homeland Security Committee.  I can imagine there are reasons Obama allowed this snake to come back.  It could be cause he wants to show the example of new starts and letting bygones be bygones.  Certainly he has been the most graceful president elect ever especially with his political rivals.  It also may have to do with the fact that Lieberman is Jewish.  Regardless there is no way this guy doesn’t flip again at some point.  He is a disgrace!   

Dems spare Lieberman, let bygones be bygones

What in the hell is up with these pirates over in Somalia?  When did pirating come back in style?  I guess it’s not like the peg-legged cats I’m used to seeing on TV back in the day.  Nor are they like the Johnny Depp character in the film.  These dudes are now taking over oil tankers and shit.  WTF?  Where is the funding coming from?  Is the booty that phat or is this a new game for drug lords?  I don’t know, but somebody needs to put a stop to this shit!

Memo to horrible ass parents who are too gutless to take care of their kids If you can afford to fly or drive your kids across the country to Nebraska to drop them off at a hospital, you can afford to take care of them.  I didn’t know this many people were that selfish and stupid as to drop 5 year old kids and teenagers off to get over on a law in Nebraska that was created to give new mothers who are scared of motherhood a safe haven to leave kids without prosecution.  In Nebraska’s haste to have a law similar to the rest of the country, the dummy’s forgot to put an age limit on the kids that could be left on hospital doorsteps.  So instead of it serving the purpose of it’s intent, which is to basically prevent teen mothers from leaving their newborns in dumpsters, people from around the nation are making a fast trek to the Nebraska border to ditch their “chillin‘. (That’s “children” for those of you who don’t have any of those Southern roots.)  Anyway – that’s whack!  And ya’ll should be ashamed of yourselves!  In the words of Mike Tyson, “You’re scared cowards!”

Four children have been dropped off at Nebraska hospitals in the last two days.

This week’s hypocrite award goes to our hometown baseball hero, Sir Albert Pujols.  You see Albert won Major League Baseball’s MVP award this year. (His second one.) And don’t get me wrong, he is one of the very best baseball has to offer.  Dude can flat out play.  But in 2006 when Philadelphia Phillie Ryan Howard won the award, because his team didn’t make the playoffs, Albert threw some haterade on Ryan’s party.  Said Sir Albert at the time when asked about Ryan winning the award, “I see it this way: Someone who doesn’t take his team to the playoffs doesn’t deserve to win the MVP.”  (The Cardinals went to the playoffs and won the World Series that year.)

Well this time Howard’s Phillies finished in first place and won the World Series.  Howard also finished second in the MVP voting behind Pujols. The Cardinals did not make the playoffs.  It’s the exact same situation in reverse.  But somehow Albert feels he deserves to win the award.  Although he admits now that Ryan Howard deserved the award in 2006, he doesn’t admit that he was wrong for the statement.  It’s almost as if he is saying, “Well since I won it this time it’s all good.”  Make up your mind Albert!  Is it about the playoffs or “all the numbers” as you say now?
