    With regard to withdrawals of troops:
    1. It should not be a surprise, since Trump promised he would do this.
    2. We do not yet know enough….we do not know the timetable of withdrawal.
    3. Trump recently talked about withdrawal of ground troops, but he said nothing about air presence.
    (In Syria, we just recently captured the last city/town helded by ISIS.)

    Finally, I suggest folks read Sung Tsu, The Art of War.

    This explains WHY the US loses War.

    The difference between Chess (fighting s war of attrition).
    and the Chinese game of GO (fighting a war by capturing as much as possible, while minimizing losses).

    Did not Trump go to military school? He certainly studied Sung Tsu at Wharton.

      Interesting rationale about the rationale for the U.S. loosing wars. I have personally gone to the other side and believe that we have ineffective leadership. I have gotten to the point where I have lost a huge amount of respect for the leadership of our elected officials. My comment about supporting the President’s actions is a manner of throwing my hands in the air and simply saying that up to this point nothing else has worked. We have been fighting various wars now since at least 9/11. There are a lot of questions about that particular event that my recently opened mind is considering. I never considered these questions before because of my philosophy of “Right or wrong my country is still my country” That philosophy is no longer one that I maintain. That happens to make me very sad, but I really see no alternative.

        Having been involved in Government, albeit only as an appointed advisory member of a committee of state goivernment, I recognize that government is merely composed of human beings with foibles and prejudices. (Not bragging, but most of the people in government are less knowlecgeable and have fewer analytical skills and lower IQ than myself – I, therefore, for the most part distrust government.)

            You do realise, if you know or dont know the truth it doesnt change the truth 1 iota, in other words, its only out of interest we look for it.

            I love socrates answer to a question from 1 of his students. (think it was soc)
            “where is truth?”

            He took the student to a pond, stuck his head under water and held it there and waited for the fellow to start struggling real good.

            When he let the gasping student up soc answered “when you want the truth as much as you just wanted air to breath, then you find it”

        Honest answer, welcome to the club Al. Because of my past as a part of the machine I Red Pilled at 37. It’s very much like the movie The Matrix. Have you seen it? You feel liberated from your past belief systems. But then you understand that questioning everything is true freedom.

          I agree with you Chris from the Philippines when you say that “questioning everything is true freedom”. I have maintained for a long time that the ability to do that is one of the reasons that I love America. (At least at this point.!)

    CFS says:

    I remind folks, the US does have a ground presence in the Kurdish region of Iraq, which is next to Syria.
    We also have a presence in Jordan, so we are in a position to help Israel, if there is a problem with Syria attacking Israel or Iran attacking Israel via Syria.

    Trump also, by withdrawal of ground troops from Syria, has reduced the possibility of a mistake leading to war with Russia.
    I, so far, limitedly agree with Trump’s withdrawal.
    It does not surprise me in the least that the military industrial complex is criticising Trump; the MIC always wants war.

          That motion is customarily taken as surrender.
          But joking aside, it is difficult to keep up with all aspects of government policy.
          It usually takes a large team, working full time, to cover all the nuances and ramifications of policy. I really don’t think we know all.
          It may be that Trump’s full policy is not totally set in stone and may change as it evolves over time.

            A shortened version of a 1.5 hour History Channel documentary on Sung Tzu and the Vietnam war may be found at:
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=maOFYVR8B40
            It is only about 25 minutes long, and I believe substantial explains why US lost the Vietnam War.

            As a side comment: this is strange, because it was Sung Tzu tactics that caused the US to win the war of 1812-3, while England fought the standard war of attrition – Superior forces and march straight at the enemy. (Britain never learned from the Battle of Bunker Hill in the Revolutionary War!)

            Incidentally, that is why America will lose against China in trade wars.
            China will fight to win and will not play “fair”. America does not understand Chinese morality, in my opinion.
            (Note, I am not saying the Chinese morality is better; just different. I happen to think Judeo-Christian morality superior….but that may be just the way I was raised.)

            The problem (I’ll say it again) is not not knowing what you do know, but not knowing what you don’t know.

      CFS…My fear is that when Pres Trump says he is withdrawing troops from Syria it does not mean he is bringing them home , he may just move them accross the border into Iraq. Until such a time as we see them steping off planes on US soil , they are still there.
      DITTO on the airforce. As he could just move those planes into Isreal.

        That is a very interesting thought Mr. Irish. At this point all I can say is that I certainly hope it is not correct.

        If it is, in fact, correct, I will be on record as saying that I have lost all faith in our future.

        You know, my friend, maybe some of my comments stem from the fact that I already have. We will see as I will pay close attention to my thoughts on this subject into the future.

          good grief cfs, you never hear of the rothchilds and the balfour agreement?

          Who do you think those lands were taken from?

          geez even Hitler went along with the balfour agreement by offering free passage to all Jews that wanted to go from germany. The
          Transfer agreement. Haavara agreement.

          Hitler didnt even think about it until he met with Amin al-Husseini and it still went on until Germany declared war on the states.

          Take a look at a map of Israel from 1948, then look at todays, tell me who the aggressors are.

            “Who do you think those lands were taken from”

            I know who those lands were taken from. I have studied the history. I know the compensation offered. I know what was accepted and what was not. AND I recocognize the “Palestinian propaganda” and what is ACTUALLY truth.
            A few months ago I reported on the FACTUAL HISTORY in this forum….pages of information with maps and UN data.
            Call me a zionist flunky or whatever, it still does not change YOUR ignorance of history.
            I am not Jewish or have any connection with Israel, but I have extensively toured both Israel and Jordan many times, and I have studied history. It will take a lot of real facts to change my opinion, which was not reached by listening to propaganda from either side, but by living through and studying history.

            I cannot remember exactly when I did post the info, but it started on weekend when someone raised the Palestinian Issue. I spent several days posting the info. I remember that in the 70s or 80s I had gotten into a major discussion on the issue and had dug up from the University library archives all the UN proposals and maps. having moved house several times since then, especially with this last recent move to California, I do not have any of those records anymore. They will exist in the kereport back-dated stuff, the actual posts, but I wish I could remember an exact dates. Maybe someone in this forum has it. (I don’t even have the same computer now.) I donated my main frame desktops when I left Indiana, and just kept two laptops and an Ipad.

            Regarding the history of the rightful territory of Israel versus Palestinians, I found the following article illuminating:

            https://www.sott.net/article/398292-Hidden-documents-that-indicate-the-true-borders-of-Israel-and-Palestine

            “Summary of conclusions

            The Zionist leadership did not want to define the borders of Israel when they declared independence from the rest of Palestine on May 14, 1948, but were forced to specify borders according to the UN Partition Plan in order to achieve recognition by the USA. The territory captured by Israel outside these borders in the 1948-49 war and incorporated de facto into Israel was obtained by war in violation of the fundamental principles of the UN Charter. Since 1949 Israel has attempted, very successfully, to convince the world that this border definition never happened in order to hide the fact that the captured territory is outside Israel’s declared and recognized sovereign borders and is therefore rightfully part of the territory of Palestine, within which the Palestinian people have the right of self-determination. Although the Palestinian leadership has accepted that Israel can keep this territory in a peace agreement, there is a very strong case for compensation for its loss in the form of a transfer of Israeli territory in the southern Negev to Palestinian sovereignty.”

            But the topic is Syria, so Golan Heights is more relevant.

            And what attacks has Syria been making on Israel that in any way compare to the myriad military incursions of Israel into Syria in recent years (including the one that killed 15 Russians a few months ago)? References, please.

            Big Al has said not to argue about Israel. I really don’t care either way, but don’t like facts mis-represented. We can always choose a different starting point.

            Soloman’s Temple, I suppose, was not built in Jerusalem, which is why Israel is located where it is.
            It all depends on the starting point.
            (I actually think the Jews simply utilized a foundation built perhaps 10,000 years earlier)
            I personally wish Israel had been placed somewhere else, but it was not.
            I believe the land allocated to Israel was stupidly indefensible.
            But then the League of Nations was hardly composed of intelligent neutral people.
            I wish Arafat had not sold out the Palestinians by wanting Trans-Jordan, but he did.
            I wish that Israel had not fought war with Arabs, and taken extra land, in order to have defensible borders, but nothing short of another war will change that.
            I doubt you and I will ever agree, GH.

      Here is an interesting thought: “the radical Muslims involved in 9/11 and subsequent actions in a sense did bring us to our knees (perhaps a bit of a dramatic statement) and our subsequent military actions in the Middle East have in a sense accomplished the same thing.

          Fascinating Osama bin Laden quote that I never saw until today. (On September 28, 2001, he was interviewed by the Karachi Ummat, an Urdu language newspaper. The US Foreign Broadcast Information Service, a component of the CIA, translated):

          “[?] I have already said that I am not involved in the 11 September attacks in the United States. As a Muslim, I try my best to avoid telling a lie. Neither I had any knowledge of these attacks nor I consider the killing of innocent women, children, and other humans as an appreciable act. Islam strictly forbids causing harm to innocent women, children, and other people. Such a practice is forbidden ever in the course of a battle. It is the United States, which is perpetrating every maltreatment on women, children, and common people of other faiths, particularly the followers of Islam.

          All that is going on in Palestine for the last 11 months is sufficient to call the wrath of God upon the United States and Israel. There is also a warning for those Muslim countries, which witnessed all these as a silent spectator. What had earlier been done to the innocent people of Iraq, Chechnya, and Bosnia? Only one conclusion could be derived from the indifference of the United States and the West to these acts of terror and the patronage of the tyrants by these powers that America is an anti-Islamic power and it is patronizing the anti-Islamic forces. Its friendship with the Muslim countries is just a show, rather deceit. By enticing or intimidating these countries, the United States is forcing them to play a role of its choice. Put a glance all around and you will see that the slaves of the United States are either rulers or enemies [of Muslims]. The US has no friends, nor it wants to keep one because the prerequisite of friendship is to come to the level of the friend or consider him at par with you. America does not want to see anyone equal to it. It expects slavery from others. Therefore, other countries are either its slaves or subordinates [?]

          Whoever committed the act of 11 September are not the friends of the American people. I have already said that we are against the American system, not against its people, whereas in these attacks, the common American people have been killed [?] The United States should try to trace the perpetrators of these attacks within itself; the people who are a part of the US system, but are dissenting against it. Or those who are working for some other system; persons who want to make the present century as a century of conflict between Islam and Christianity so that their own civilization, nation, country, or ideology could survive [?]

          Then there are intelligence agencies in the US, which require billions of dollars worth of funds from the Congress and the government every year. This [funding issue] was not a big problem till the existence of the former Soviet Union but after that the budget of these agencies has been in danger. They needed an enemy. So, they first started propaganda against Usama and Taliban and then this incident happened. You see, the Bush administration approved a budget of $40 billion. Where will this huge amount go? It will be provided to the same agencies, which need huge funds and want to exert their importance. Now they will spend the money for their expansion and for increasing their importance.

          I will give you an example. Drug smugglers from all over the world are in contact with the US secret agencies. These agencies do not want to eradicate narcotics cultivation and trafficking because their importance will be diminished. The people in the US Drug Enforcement Department are encouraging drug trade so that they could show performance and get millions of dollars worth of budget. General Noriega was made a drug baron by the CIA and, in need, he was made a scapegoat.

          In the same way, whether it is President Bush or any other US President, they cannot bring Israel to justice for its human rights abuses or to hold it accountable for such crimes. What is this? Is it not that there exists a government within the government in the United Sates? That secret government must be asked as to who made the attacks [?]”

        I would ask, “Why is there a Muslim presence in Europe?” And to such a large extent. I will tell you why because it’s what the New World Odor wants…Soros, Rothschild, etc. and their puppets Macrony, SMerkel, etc. They want to destroy these nations. They want to destroy Western culture. They want to destroy the middle class. They want to destroy Christianity.

            “Richard Nikolaus Eijiro, Count of Coudenhove-Kalergi (November 16, 1894 – July 27, 1972) was an Austrian-Japanese politician, philosopher and Count of Coudenhove-Kalergi. The pioneer of European integration, he served as the founding president of the Paneuropean Union for 49 years, which would be the preliminary ideological foundation of the European Union.”

            “According to his autobiography, at the beginning of 1924 his friend Baron Louis de Rothschild introduced him to Max Warburg who offered to finance his movement for the next three years by giving him 60,000 gold marks.”

            “In his book Praktischer Idealismus (Practical Idealism), written in 1925, he describes the future of Jews in Europe and of European racial composition with the following words:[45]

            ‘The man of the future will be of mixed race. Today’s races and classes will gradually disappear owing to the vanishing of space, time, and prejudice. The Eurasian-Negroid race of the future, similar in its appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals.’ “

            So how does that fit into the NWO? What is the NWO?

            Henry Makow defines it thus: “The mainspring of the New World Order is the desire on the part of the world’s central bankers to translate their vast economic power into permanent global institutions of political and social control. ”

            https://www.henrymakow.com/130402.html

            As in the Coudenhove-Kalergi example above, or here in the US, the multicultural imperative can be traced back to the bankers. Likewise Cultural Marxism in general, as well as control of mass media and the popular culture.

            It’s about degrading and breaking down cultures, dividing them against themselves, debilitating resistance to the would-be international ruling class of bankers who want to centralize all power in their own hands.

            Except for the fact, that I just the reply button too quickly. I have been really bothered by the blog recently. Here is why. Too much pessimism.There is a lot of negativity going on in the world right now, and much of it is very hard for me to understand. I say that, not because I am a Pollyanna but because I have had a lot of negativity, at times in my life, and I have discovered that most of it was my own doing
            I have been accused of changing my mind like Jimmy Buffet changes his flip flops. I guess that is true, but I do it because there are times when I really see the potential for goodness in the world.

            The thing that really confuses me, GH, is that people can be so stupid and evil. I know that this is happening because they are basically selfish in that they are always seeking power perhaps to justify their own existence. As you are probably aware, I believe that there is a much easier to accomplish that. Perhaps more on that later.

            For now bear with me as I did come to some conclusions about all of this world turmoil last night.

            Let me start with my feelings about Trump. He certainly does have some short suits, but I believe that, in his heart, he truly believes that he is absolutely correct in his actions. My opinion, since I am criticized for not being obvious about it, is that he has some serious ideas about how to make America great again. I also know that I don’t completely understand him.
            Off to church and I will back and continue this around noon pacific time.

            “For what it is worth, other than when I was in the hospital, this is the earliest that I have been up for a long, long time…”

            Mr. Big Al Korelin, how do you do it? How are you able to get so much sleep? Are you on medication that has a side effect of inducing sleep?

            I have insomnia and when I can get to sleep I wake up at least a couple times a night. It’s very hard to get anywhere close to 7 or 8 hours sleep a night. I was put on Ambien but went off that long ago as I am not going to get hooked on pills and anyway, their effects wear off. BTW, I can verify that Ambien does induce hunger, at least it did for me, but I never made or ate salt sandwiches or buttered cigarettes in the middle of the night.

            Nice to hear you’re doing better, Al.

            I agree, the world seems crazy and lots of negativity.

            I suppose many would put apply those adjectives to me. But my view is, if there is a problem face it squarely with eyes open, try to diagnose it accurately without either overstatement or understatement, or problems will just compound.

            As for people being stupid and evil, it seems to be part of the human condition…which is a lot of what religion is about. Some people opt for the dark path, and find that it is really easy to manipulate others. Those who opt for the dark path are often those who have been most traumatized by others already on that path. I used to think ‘satanism’ was just a silly pastime for bored people, but boy was I wrong. Pizzagate opened my eyes to that.

            FWIW, Ebolan, I moved to the country a few months back, and am sleeping the best I have in years. Lower ambient noise and EMF. Also nutrition levels, like Mg and D3, as well as a healthy gut are important.

            But he’s the first Prez in experience that has even been worth holding out any hope. So that’s something.

            I think the main thing is that those who rejected the mass media and elected Trump need to keep educating themselves and organizing, and if Trump doesn’t get the job done, they need to try, try again. The stakes are high.

            I will tell you that in this country we don’t have healthcare. We have disease management and the system does a lousy job at it. From conventional medicine (the allopathic Rockefeller medicine forced on this country about a hundred years ago) we get virtually nothing for prevention and cure.

            MDs are nothing but modern day witch doctors. And the system is so monstrously expensive. It is corrupt and unsustainable. Not only will it kill us, it will eventually kill itself.

            But the system has no economic incentive to prevent or cure. It’s all about keeping you on the pills and doctor visits and expensive chronic treatments to keep their gravy train rolling on.

            And besides, the system wants us dead at 65 anyway. You think they want a bunch of old farts on Socialist Insecurity and Medi(no)care for decades?

            “Your people never realize that we offer them only worthless baubles that cannot bring fulfillment. They procure one and consume it and are not filled. We present another. We have an infinite number of outward distractions, to the extent that life cannot again turn inward to find its definite fulfillment…

            We have converted the people to our philosophy of getting and acquiring so that they will never be satisfied. A dissatisfied people are pawns in our game of world conquest. Thus, they are always seeking and never able to find satisfaction. The very moment they seek happiness outside themselves, they become our willing servants.”

Perhaps there is no ‘right way’ but this seems to risk making the situation in the region more unstable than it is already. I especially don’t like the idea that this gives Turkey the green light to invade Syria to attack the kurds, which given the kurds have been instrumental in fighting ISIS could allow ISIS to rebuild.

        There is no changing of the minds of people required, watching daughters enslaved and sons beheaded is all the convincing they needed.

        Havnt followed as close but I would hazard a guess the people of Iraq feel the same way.

        This is one of the bs things that people here refused to look at, It is and always was Assad protecting ALL religions including christianity, that isis was murdering and destroying any remnant of.

        Isis did everything they could to destroy the spot Jesus was baptized, not a word from christians, just Assad is bad.bla bla bla

        They only noticed when historical sites in Iraq were being destroyed, historical religious sites in Syria have not mattered until Isis was in retreat christian or otherwise.

          I have not been to Syria recently and I don’t read arabic, but my read of the situation is that at first Syrians were not anti-ISIS, but treated them as Islamic friends (as opposed to infidels). It was only after horrendous atrocities were publicly committed by ISIS that Syrians realized they were mistaken and most then turned heavily anti-ISIS.

        But you don’t, Al

        That is what I was getting at the other day.

        For instance, you’re not interested in learning about the dark side of the CIA and Skull & Bones, that your guy GHW Bush was connected with. Nor are you interested in those showing the Bush family came to prominence by serving the Harrimans, Schiffs, Warburgs, & Rothschilds and their connection to the fiscal insanity in the US, and the moral decline.

        As far as I can tell you’re only interested in listening to establishment figures comfortably situated within the NWO paradigm, people that will never truly challenge the negative trends in the country though they may well pay lip service to doing so.

        In any case, it’s impossible to listen to everyone. Does detective Mike Hammer question everyone in New York City? No. He goes where evidence and logic take him. Most people are simply not worth a listen.

        In Jim McKinney’s case, the last time I listened to him he was appealing for us to give Afghanistan more time because, gasp(!) there’s really bad people in Afghanistan, and oh, the poor women! No hard talk about why we’ve made little or no headway in 17 years and what we were going to do differently, nor a timeline. No consideration of the context of the past few decades and how much the US has done to empower those same bad guys. And the increase in opium production since the US invaded? Forget about it.

        From a detectives point of view, I haven’t learned a single damn useful thing from McKinney, no matter how ‘nice’ he may be.

          A couple more things you seem disinclined to hear, although they directly impact on those things you stand for:

          Jewish good guy Henry Makow tells us, “About 80% of the media figures caught in the #MeToo scandal are Jews.”

          https://www.henrymakow.com/kabbalah-how-sex-became-our-religion.html

          Then there is the porn industry, the push for gay marriage, feminism, hollywood and the music industry, with similar ethnic representation in control. Can you think of other themes that are more important in the delining sexual decency and responsibility in the US? I can’t, but I’m all ears.

            As for financial insanity, aside from the Federal Reserve elephant in the room, this is rather eye opening:

            “the stock market scandals of the mid-to-late 1980s in the United States saw an overwhelming preponderance of Jews — at least ninety percent was a widely accepted figure.”

            This is a quote from Albert Lindemann (Jewish), in his “Esau’s Tears: Modern Anti-Semitism and the Rise of the Jews”
            amazon.com/Esaus-Tears-Modern-Anti-Semitism-Rise/dp/0521795389/

            I don’t have the book, but got the quote from:
            https://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2009/08/01/the-culture-of-deceit/

            All this connects back to my original point about the Bushes, and how they rose in social standing, because all of these financial and cultural attacks are enabled by the system they served at a very high level. Without Jewish control of our financial system and media system (and legal, political, and academic systems), the financial insanity and sexual debauchery would not be happening.

            It should go without saying that not ALL Jews are responsible. But there is clearly a problem with an ethnic dimension. And the number of Jews who call out their criminal co-ethnics versus those who circle the wagons is exceedingly low. This is a BIG problem.

            I certainly don’t blame you for not wanting to make points like this at KER given your highly visible position and the berserker vindictiveness of those I’m calling out. But at some point, in SOME way, we have to have the courage of our convictions.

            It is the Talmudic Jews that are the Zionists, they were the ones that were booted from England for sacrificing christian children. As an example.

            But there are other Jews that would be just as horrified at that as all decent people would be.

            I just dont like lumping all Jews together, I have a hunch that was a Talmudic goal.

            Absolutely a Talmudist goal. They thrive on anti-Jewish hatred. Israel Shahak and Douglas Reed’s histories make it clear that the Pharisee/Talmudist leadership has always worked to keep the Jewish people isolated from the rest of humanity, in furtherance of the leaders’ insane messianic dream of rule over all humanity. It’s been going on for 2500+ years.

            The CFR can be traced back to the Cecil Rhodes group, the Round Table, and the Royal Institute on International Affairs. It was all about global empire. Rhodes, at least at one point, had a will to leave all his vast wealth, derived from South African gold and diamonds, to a Rothschild. Look into the Boer War(s) in this context.

        Myth 6: The Agency operates independently and is not held accountable to anyone
        The CIA is responsible to the American people. We operate in accordance with oversight from US elected representatives. In the Executive Branch, the National Security Council (NSC)—which includes the president, vice president, secretary of state, and secretary of defense—provides guidance and direction for national foreign intelligence and counterintelligence activities. In Congress, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), as well as other committees, closely monitor the Agency’s reporting and programs.

        Internally, the CIA Office of Inspector General performs independent audits, inspections, investigations, and reviews of CIA programs and operations, seeking to detect and deter fraud, waste, abuse, and mismanagement.

        The CIA’s budget is scrutinized by the Office of Management and Budget and by SSCI, HPSCI, and the Defense Subcommittees of the Appropriations Committees in both houses of Congress. The resources allocated to the CIA are subject to the same rigorous examination and approval process that applies to all other government organizations.

          The Central Iintelligence Agency is a government agency responsible for the collection, analysis, and exploitation of information in support of law enforcement, national security, military, and foreign policy objectives.

          Means of information gathering are both overt and covert and may include espionage, communication interception, cryptanalysis, cooperation with other institutions, and evaluation of public sources. The assembly and propagation of this information is known as intelligence analysis or intelligence assessment.

          Intelligence agencies can provide the following services for their national governments.

          Give early warning of impending crises;
          Serve national and international crisis management by helping to discern the intentions of current or potential opponents;
          Inform national defense planning and military operations (military intelligence);
          Protect sensitive information secrets, both of their own sources and activities, and those of other state agencies;
          May act covertly to influence the outcome of events in favor of national interests, or influence international security; and
          Defense against the efforts of other national intelligence agencies (counter-intelligence).
          There is a distinction between “security intelligence” and “foreign intelligence”. Security intelligence pertains to domestic threats (e.g., terrorism, espionage). Foreign intelligence involves information collection relating to the political, or economic activities of foreign states.

          However, what it is permitted/supposed to do and what it actually does….e.g. Coups d’etat, assassinations, toppling governments, etc are not often identical or even constrained.

          Who would have thought the upper echelons of the FBI would try to overturn a US Presidential election?
          Yet that is what just happened in the last 2 years.

        “Only half the military will be withdrawn” Bolton says that you are correct “Bolton made the comments to reporters in New York ahead of President Trump’s planned speech Tuesday to the United Nations General Assembly, directly linking any future withdrawal of American troops from Syria to the departure of Iranian forces from the nation. Iran has joined Russia and the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah to back Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad in a war in its eighth year.

        “We’re not going to leave as long as Iranian troops are outside Iranian borders and that includes Iranian proxies and militias,” Bolton said, according to the Associated Press.”

          I guess it was done when Ukraine declared marshal law.
          Which they did when Russia grabbed those 3 Ukrainian vessels.

          Some news sites only leave a story up for so long and then new ones come on.

          Ukraine declaring war on Russia is insanity anyway, but the story did say that Ukrainians between the ages of 16-60 were going to other countries in all direction to avoid any draft.

    Q:
    Why is Trump pulling the troops?
    A:
    Because that’s what the founding fathers would do under a republic. And this POTUS is actually fulfilling the legal rule of law as a republic!

    Q:
    Aren’t these wars about bringing democracy to other countries?
    A:
    Yes!
    The US has been a corporate democracy since the act of 1872 (unbeknownst to the public and unautherized of the people, which the US congress are traitors for) which ended the republic that stands for the people.

        Exact Statistics on number of Christians in Syria is hard to verify, but it appears that the Christian population increased from 2 million to 2.5 million by the 1950s, peaked, and has been decreasing since to currently about 1.5 million.

          Prior, I believe it would be fair to say that torture was used equally across all religions and sects etc.

          That I believe is the reason for the new constitution discussions.
          If anything good comes out of this war it might be that.

          There have been alot of Syrians fighting for Syria that were not part of the Syrian army, the sdf for example.

    One of the hardest things I have done as a parent is to try educate my youngest daughter about the financial situation we find ourselves in.
    May I suggest Al that you get your daughter a ph tester for water. The body’s optimal ph balance is 7.4. Many bottled waters are not even close to this and it makes the body acidic which can be stress inducing.
    Secondly those of you that are north of 33 degrees Latitude,the body doesn’t get the vitamin D from the sun during the winter months.
    You crack me up Al when you have a blog going on the controllers of the media ,then at the same time you are referencing Fox News on another.
    Recently I read the comment about you flip flopping. To me this shows growth and the ability to change.
    I read your comment about the CIA and the list you posted. You are never going to find out what the CIA is up to. The CIA is part of the controlling media.
    Just the other day I was listening to a U-tube interview. The guest brought up John Rockefellor and the video was pulled as I was listening to it.
    I have to accept the fact that a lot of information has been scrubbed from the Internet. Thus people cannot get the information some of us have seen.
    Anchoring is when the unconscious mind accepts a suggestion. News networks thus have anchors. People tend to shut down when you tell them about things using the key words they have been programmed on T.V. People believe that if they haven’t seen it on the news,therefore it is not true because if it was something to worry about,they would have already seen it. Mind control is a lot easier when people are apathetic. When you are under stress fear is imposed. When you have fear you do not critically think rather you are in react mode. Defense mechanisms programmed by T V leads to accepting the information for survival. Through absorbtion you feed your survival mechanism with their programming.
    Ray Dalio,the founder of Bridgewater is a pretty interesting guy.Ray reccomended reading Joseph Campbell’s book “The Hero With a Thousand Faces.” Contained in that book was reference to “The Body Electric” Electromagnetism and the Foundation of life by Robert O Becker M.D. Mr Becker is an Orthopedic Surgeon who has done extensive research on the connection of bone healing and the electrical currents associated there in. At one point he teamed up with one of the inventors of the electron scanning microscope. I bring this up because now I have found out that not only does the media program you but the T.V itself puts out a electromagnetic energy that subliminally activates the stress response.
    Everybody is suffering from the rise of electromagnetism around us. Turns out that sugar and protein metabolism is being affected as well.
    “Electropollution” weakens the immune system and causes permanent changes in bacterial metabolism with extremely low frequency waves.Since 1950 here are some of the new diseases. Rye Syndrome,Lymes Disease,Legionaires Disease, Aids and Herpes Genitalis. Extended adrenocortical (brain) stress from extremely low frequency interferes with the body’s ability to fight disease and cancer.Since 1970 one third of the population could expect to get some form of cancer.
    This a very fascinating book linking what is happening today with our health and the electronics around us and the efforts to suppress certain information.

Get the hell out and do not needlessly attack anymore foreign nations that pose no threat to us. Al your friend Ron Paul must be rolling his eyes if he listened to this conversation.

    Using the military to “protect our interest” in foreign nations is immoral. Read your Catholic Catechism.

      I agree and I have done a very prudent “about face” on that topic. Did you catch my positions on the topics of Afghanistan and Syria this weekend. I said that I was in agreement with the withdrawals.

      I also said that I was somewhat confused but that I had thrown my hands in the air in hopes that President knew what he was doing. I our troops are not actually helping people they should not be there.

    Real Alchemy’: Chinese Scientists Discover a Way to Turn Copper Into ‘Gold’

    The research paper points out that the new material based on cheap copper can replace expensive gold and silver in the production of electronic devices, which require significant amounts of these materials.

    https://www.sgtreport.com/2018/12/real-alchemy-chinese-scientists-discover-a-way-to-turn-copper-into-gold/

    If this is true, would’nt the reduced industrial demand for silver crush its price?.

    Jerry, and all you boys, check out how STUPID YOUR GOOBERMENT IS!

    Speaking of which, buried in the foreign aid reports last year, I discovered something — we give foreign aid to China. So government is so dumb, it is literally borrowing money from China, to give it back to China, while paying interest on it.

    Trump says Fed is the problem but not for the right reasons! He’s fine with artificial interest rates as long as they’re artificially LOW. And to use the PPT that the Reagan administration brought us? You can’t get more lefty than that!
