Israel situation interesting (and pretty fucking scary)

Biyamin Netan-yoo-hoo needs to form a government or he loses his immunity for corruption charges. But his coalition includes the ultra orthodox, who don't want to be drafted (and claim to be all scholars studying the Talmud to avoid the draft) and anti Palestinian right wingers who want no exemptions for the draft. We'll see how it plays out, but that fucking Binyamin & Sarah Yoo-hoo are survivors.


Also Noteayoohoo is trying to distance hisself from the US/Iran conflict. This after his providing all the intel that Trimp is using to amp up the situation. Reese Bolton, when asked about the “ship damage”, said something like “of course Iran did it, who else would, Nepal?”

Nettieboy is justifiably worried that a shooting war between US & Iran would very likely destroy a lot of Israel. He’s been rattling sabre for a long time, mostly for political gain, but now fears it when it actually looks like Trimp & Bolton in are in charge of WMD. :shock:

Mueller revelations did little to change Trump’s ‘personality cult’ supporters’ minds — a Yale psychiatrist explains why

https://tinyurl.com/y3ympvcb

https://www.rawstory.com/2019/05/mue...-explains-why/

"What impact do you think it’ll (Mueller's refusal to exonerate Trump on the issue of obstruction and Trump's reaction) have on his followers? Why?

Currently, Mr. Trump has turned his followers into a personality cult, which will believe whatever he says over all evidence, and so they will simply amplify his impairments. He himself told them: “What you are seeing and what you are reading is not what’s happening.“

It is important to note that fascism is not a political ideology or strategy but mental pathology at societal scale, starting with an impaired leader who attains power not to lead but to fulfill his own dysfunctional needs. Of course, such a leader is attractive in the first place because of similar pathologies in the population, which global economic inequities and massive social injustices in our day could have predicted. Since such a leader does not have any real ability to lead, he manipulates the psychological weaknesses in the population, augmenting societal disorder until the dynamic brings down the entire society. Destruction is always the inevitable result, as it is the nature of pathology, as opposed to healthy choices."

Dr. Brandy X. Li of Yale University seems to be engaging in the bourgeois liberal intellectual pastime of the Trump era, that being the labeling of Trump and his supporters as Fascists, which does require a massive redefinition of the term "Fascist", just as the rest of Multiculturalist/Gender Feminist/Neo-Liberal Economist ideology relies on unfounded, vague yet politically convenient terminological redefinitions of virtually every aspect of observable reality.

In this case, Dr. Brandy ignores the fact that Fascism is, fundamentally, a social movement organizing itself within the context of a failed state around a militantly anti-democratic ideology, backed up by significant armed force privately controlled by the movement itself, which seeks to unite the Petit Bourgeoisie with the lumpenproletariat in order to politically isolate and dominate the working class and its civil society organizations, and to force the working class into subsuming the class struggle into what is propagandically presented as the larger national or racial cause.

In some cases, the fact that such a simplistic ideology can allow no free expression of thought (as such would clearly reveal the fundamental contradictions between the ideology and observable reality), and does, in fact, require the armed movement to wage war upon its own population in order to enforce the supremacy of ideology over reality, clearly marks certain sociologically related phenomena as a manifestation of a larger social pathology known as Totalitarianism. The category of Totalitarianism includes Stalinism, Maoism and National Socialism.

Yet classic European Fascism is really more reactionary than the decidedly revolutionary nature of the classic Totalitarian ideologies, as it seeks to organize the Petit Bourgeoisie and lumpenproletariat against the working class in support of the traditional social order.

Although Fascism and Totalitarianism certainly involve a cult of the personality surrounding the leader, and I most certainly admit that President Trump is the beneficiary of such a cult of personality, I must certainly categorize the Trump presidency as being revolutionary rather than reactionary, as he's clearly ripping the wiring out of the US Globalist establishment, and he's clearly not as anti-Working Class as traditional Fascists, whose first act in power is to outlaw labor unions and imprisonment labor leaders. Indeed, President Trump has sought favor from labor unions, although some of his policies have clearly not been in the interests of organized labor.

In short, Dr. Brandy X. Li appears to be one more anti-Trump name-caller, throwing the accusation of Fascism around as pretty much of an empty insult.

State Department will focus on “natural rights” and how far we’ve strayed..

Pompous Pompey Pompeeo sez: “bible informs everything I do“

If we’re really returning to natural law, guys like Pompey have like 0 chance of survival.

One thing that doesn't really concern me is that the President is allowing his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, to attend Bilderberg 2019 in Montreux. The optics on this are, admittedly, supremely bad, as one massive talking point that the President has against the Democrats is their history of massive violations of the Logan Act of 1799, most spectacularly including former Secretary of State John Kerry's meeting with senior Iranian leaders telling them to stand fast against the United States, as President Trump wouldn't be in office much longer. However, the Logan Act only applies to private citizens negotiating with foreign powers without Congressional permission. As Mr. Kushner is a White House advisor, he'll be attending as an Executive Branch official, rather than as a private citizen.

Ergo, eat your hearts out, anti-Trumpers!

Aww, the poor Millennials who might just have to go without their avocado toast for a year or two.

They can learn to eat creamed corn, and SPAM, and beans, just as I, their senior in years, have been doing for far too long by now.

Let Mexico pay for the wall, one way or another!

oh i had to google. still with the race thing? lmao. a useless debate but she dug her own grave. but that’s politics for the masses: a celebrity contest. and so the apprentice keeps conning fools while he wrecks the world’s economy with his tweets.

but here is don the con’s egregious record on racial matters, to compare with her fibs:
http://fortune.com/2016/06/07/donald...racism-quotes/
https://www.vox.com/2016/7/25/122708...racism-history
racist republicans just keep looking the other way though.

warren has got some good ideas even though she’s not been a great candidate.

i’ve been pondering her wealth tax, and while i’m not yet a convert i’m less allergic to it than i was before. meaning some of it makes some sense.

her big tech breakups i don’t know either. a lot of pros and cons. still, an idea worth debating in the age of facebook.

but her universal child care program is one of the most constructive out there. i see little downside to it.

I actually don't care if she identifies as whatever. If someone can identify as a gender other than the one they're born with, then I don't see why someone else shouldn't be able to identify as any race of their choosing. Why is Caitlyn Jenner treated as a hero(ine) while someone like Rachel Dolezal gets ridiculed?

Well I assume you're talking about Trump but as I don't see him as either of those things, my answer (namely, that he's not as smart as maybe he thinks he is but a helluva lot smarter than most of his critics want to believe) doesn't really apply.

I was treating 'senile dotard' and 'stable genius' as the two things. I don't think he's either.
