Societal Commentary from Big Al and others. – Sun 3 Dec, 2017

Many of Big Al’s comments are not appearing on the site.

Good afternoon folks, I just discovered that many of my comments are not appearing on our site. I, obviously have to correct that.

Please keep talking among yourselves. Kathy and I are headed up to Vancouver to celebrate my 74th with our youngest daughter and I will be back on site this evening.

I have absolutely no idea what is happening! Sorry!

        Many Happy Returns.

        I also have had postings not post.
        Swapping to a different computer helps for a few postings and then failure again.
        ? Almost like a cookie is being placed that limits postings rate or number.

        National Security Adviser Flynn was pushed into a perjury trap by Obama administration holdovers at the Justice Department who concocted an unorthodox legal rationale for subjecting Flynn to an FBI interrogation four days after he took office, testing Flynnโ€™s recollection of the conversations while the FBI agents had transcripts of the calls intercepted by the National Security Agency.

        I meant that for the KER posts not for Flynn.

          Of course, of course a lot of impotant information here. Actually “impotent” but certainly interesting and thought provoking.

    Big Al;
    You don’t think that the biggest wargames ever with S. Korea and 30% of US attack capability with carrier fleets off the coast of N. Korea might be interpreted by Fatboy Kim as provocative or threatening. I suppose you don’t think Fatboy Kim might be goaded into making a mistake.

    People who play with fire sometimes get burned.

      f the world appears wildly chaotic, bordering on insane, check the programming. Garbage in, garbage out. The current state of affairs reflects the predominant quantity and quality of thought.

      Whatโ€™s true at the individual level – there is no hope of improving life without improving thought – applies to groups, including the group known as humanity.

      One hypothesis can be advanced with virtual certainty: among the masses hooked into the internet, exchanging pictures of cute animals and the fascinating details of their fascinating lives, this post will not go viral.

      Petrodollar and toward Beijing, Venezuela would begin publishing its oil basket price in Chinese yuan. The strategic shift away from the USD did not work quite as expect, because a little over two months later, both Venezuela and its state-owned energy company, PDVSA were declared in default on their debt obligations by ISDA, which triggered the respective CDS contracts as the country’s long-expected insolvency became fact.

      I just read the article and you really have to wonder about credibility. Have you found USA Watchdog to always put out credible information.

        The above mentioned article , is backed up by C.A. Fitts……solarireport. She is the individual who was at HUD, and found the books out of order, the govt tried to discredit her by a bunch of run around lawsuits.
        I have been following usawatchdog for serveral years, and Greg does have some very interesting individuals on his show.
        Do I believe all of them……..I have my doubts on a few, but, overall I think he can be trusted, as much as the news is concerned.
