That Sounds Good to Me Chancellor Merkel

It’s reported that German Chancellor Angela Merkel says US German relations are strained.
“The times when we could fully rely on others are to some extent over — I experienced that in the last few days,” Merkel told her supporters, according to Bloomberg. “We Europeans must really take our destiny into our own hands.”
“Of course we need to have friendly relations with the U.S. and with the U.K. and with other neighbors, including Russia,” she continued. “We have to fight for our own future ourselves.

So I guess the shot at England is the disdain of global elite for Brits daring to defy Brussels and vote for Brexit. The funny thing about this is it should be possible to have an open trade zone without surrendering local self government to bureaucratic domination by unaccountable Eureaucrats in a foreign capital. Long live free Britannia.

And, it goes without saying that the shot at the US is for having the gall to elect Donald Trump who says Europe needs to pay for its own defense. Well, Mrs. Merkel, if you think Europe should do more with its own hands for its own future, I’d say Mr. Trump’s bluster is bearing some dividends.

Trump Exposed. The Shocking Revelation That Ensures Impeachment. A Tribe Exclusive.

Been thinking. The Trump collusion story finally makes perfect sense. The New York real estate mogul was sure the DNC and Podesta had compromising dirt on their computers. So what did he do? Did he talk to a guy who knows a guy and hire a hack job here local for a couple million? (Put American hackers back to Work Again!) NO!
 
He let loose his campaign to negotiate with Russia over global cables that everyone knows are spied on by all the cool agencies from every nation and villain in the Bond movies.
 
“Hey, Vlad, the New York Times is being pretty rough on me. Do you think you could dig up some dirt on Hillary and could you see if you can, ya know, change the narrative? That would be yuge if you could counter her billion dollar campaign machine, and neutralize the full weight of America’s media and give me the presidency.
 
“If you could do that for me, you have no idea the things I’ll do for you! I’ll increase US energy production to torpedo your major global asset. I’ll increase US defense spending. I’ll badger NATO to increase its own defense spending. I’ll blow up your toy dictator’s planes in Syria. I’ll bash you at the UN. This is a deal you can’t refuse!
 
Vlad calls back on the red Bat Phone, assured of total confidentiality. “This sound good, Donald. I’ll give you election. I’ll take off shirt and flex pecks. Ladies go crazy. I’ll…
“Wait. No, not necessary. I got American voters under little finger. They do what I want. I’ll just leak few Podesta emails to show what weasel is Hillary. Then you win. Then you do all you promise. Da?”
 
“Wait, Donald…offer only include weasels DNC and Podesta. I’m not sharing stuff I got from bathroom server. That stuff too potent and sensitive.”

The Big News About Obama ABC NBC CBS and CNN Aren’t Telling You.

The National Security Agency under former President Barack Obama routinely violated American privacy protections while intercepting and analyzing internet communications. Circa news has obtained a previously classified order by the Foreign Service Intelligence Court which concludes that about 5% or 1 of every 20 intercepts violated Americans’ civil rights, and further, that the NSA failed to disclose the scope of violations to the FISC.

 

In other words, the worst suspicions of administration critics are confirmed. The Obama administration routinely conducted electronic surveillance of Americans. And not just any Americans. Other recent disclosures of CIA coordination with foreign intelligence agencies confirm how much of this stolen information was used: to try to damage the Trump campaign and swing the 2016 election. The administration did do exactly what it is alleging the Trump campaign did: hack and collude and try to steal the election.
 
In a sane world, this story would be massive. In a world with a serious media—that wasn’t the attack arm of the Democrat Party–this story would lead the news casts for days. In a society with better informed citizens, this story would be the subject of anger and concern even if the networks are trying to black it out.
 
We don’t live in that world. Since the news broke a few days ago, a Google search for “Obama National Security Administration surveillance” shows intense interest and alarm by conservative outlets, from Fox News to specialty websites, but not a single mention from any other national network or publication.
 
There are obvious reasons the national media would prefer to keep this story invisible. To say it makes the Obama administration look bad is an understatement. It reveals intelligence officials as partisan agents. It bolsters Trump’s allegations that Obama spied on him. It detracts from the fabricated frenzy against Trump and collusion with Russia. It raises the obvious question how an unheard of source like CIRCA broke the news of a major Obama scandal while the networks were too busy protecting the administration to cover it.
 
This story will stay out there. It will get legs. Some reporter who, through guilt or ambition wants to pretend to do real reporting, will ask Obama or former NSA head James Clapper or CIA Director John Brennan to comment or to deny the story. This could explode yet.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 
 

You and I are Unspeakably Wealthy.

Every once in a while, I think about the incomprehensible material wealth of modern society. The way you and I live. That’s vague and lofty, so let me be more specific.
 
I had a bowl of beef stew for lunch. I sat reading articles longer than I intended so the bowl dried kind of brown and hard. I put it in the sink, turned on the hot water, let it flow and overflow, and then then grabbed the dishbrush to scrub away the crust. Simple.
 
But that quart or or two of hot water had to first come to me clean through delivered pipes, and then be heated, and sit in a tank, just waiting for me to turn a knob. Any impoverished waif could do it. But, how miraculous is that process?
 
Billionaire John D. Rockefeller would have had to expend far greater resources to get a clean-ish bowl placed in the sink. A servant would have had to draw water from the well. There would have to be a kettle boiling, or at least simmering.That would have taken another servant to relay some wood or load some coal to the iron stove. And smoke would filter through the house.
 
John D might have been the richest man in the world or close, but his life was a campout compared to ours. Would you rather be a billionaire in the early 20th century or a commoner today?

Fake News From the Tribe! Trump Harasses Saudi Sword Dancers.

NBCBSNN reported today that sources close to the president divulged, on condition of anonymity, that President Trump blurted out “Some of those Saudi sword dancers’ butts looked pretty trim and grabbable, if they weren’t dudes.”

Chuck Schumer immediately called for a special prosecutor to investigate Trump for harassment, homophobia, and disclosure of classified presidential lusts. Nancy Pelosi said: “Well, he has to uncover the dancers to see what’s under the robes.”

Sean Spicer was hiding in the bushes. Ann Colter was formulating something fiendishly clever but did not immediately return calls. Rachel Maddow scheduled a 4-hour special on MSNBC.

Pressure is mounting for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to appoint an independent figure like James Comey to get to the bottom of these serious allegations. “I don’t see how he can avoid impeachment if he doesn’t move quickly to clear this up,” said disinterested commentator Hilary Clinton.
