The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Isaiah 40:3-8 

Washington, D.C. August 10, 2018:”We are living in most interesting, and often very depressing times. The Chief Executive is an obvious eccentric but very malicious. The media is divided between genuine news reporting and insane fantasies concocted by those who belong in institutions, wrapped in wet sheets in a bathtub. The planet is over-populated and, as Calhoun points out in his article on rat overpopulation, this leads to mindless violence on the part of the inmates. Washington is infested with legions of the unbalanced who scream for war against anyone who cannot fight back and all this negativity produces is unity in others against American depredations. Those who cause this can take their ample bribe monies and go to live in Antigua. They can search for the vanished remains of Natalie Holloway or search for huge amounts of gold buried somewhere in the vacinity by German U boat crews during the Second World War. Fantasy had replace reality and the United States is rapidly turning into a fractious mental institution.”

The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Isaiah 40:3-8 

Washington, D.C. August 9, 2018:” Trump puts all kinds of economic sanctions on other countries who do not obey his irrational orders.

What would happen if some, or all, of these targets retaliated? For instance, what would happen if somehow the NYSE collapsed, causing a selling panic and doing to American finance what Trump was doing to theirs?

What if a US fleet sailed arrogantly into the Persian Gulf to protect America’s oil supplies and the Strait of Hormuz suddenly was blocked?

Not only would no oil get out into the market but ships, including the US fleet, would be trapped and sitting targets for nearby Iranian rocket and artillery attacks.

What would Trump do then?

Oddly enough, Iran has long distance rockets and in spite of US statements to the contrary, they do have a limited number of atomic weaponry.

Ask Israel who is increasingly frantic for the US to bomb Tehran flat (saving them the trouble and possible atomic retaliation)

We are seeing a reprise of 1914 with international tensions, old grudges and dreams of global glory soaring and all without the realization that genuine diplomacy, not bellowing threats of force, are desperately needed.

The only true diplomat on the international scene is Russia’s Putin but one must not tell that to the blustering bully, Trump.

He is laboring under the serious delusion that he is an important person and, even more delusional, a great natonal leader.

And Trump never tells the truth when a lie would suffice.

Putin has brought his country out of social and economic depression into the light and this by itself has made him an object of hatred to the American business community who eyed Russia’s immense natural resources as objects of possession and plunder.

Their piratical ventures collapsed because Putin saw through their sly games and put a stop to them.

In Charlottesville, Virginia, the government has secretly been constructing underground bunker systems to house Important People like greedy Congressmen, top business leaders and other worthless garbage in the event some of them instigate an atomic war.

Pity the poor people of Charlottesville who had to contend with left-wing and far right dirt bags in screaming street scenes.

Turning oligarchs and professional politicials loose on a refined university town is an act of social sadism.”

The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Isaiah 40:3-8 

Washington, D.C. August 8, 2018:” It was in the Spring of 2001 when a young computer expert living in the Mid-West developed a lethal virus intended to do a full-bore global destruction to the international computer/internet system.

The virus is spread from computer to computer system to computer and it is so constructed that it cannot be searched out by any known computer security system. The virus remains placidly dormant until it is triggered and then after a specific lapse of time, is fully activated.

What does this virus do?

Totally obliterates the computer hard drive and expunges it of all memory.

In essence, the hard drive is flat line and cannot be reconstructed.

What sort of a trigger would activate this?

Perhaps a first, middle and last name coupled with a fake social security number.

The probability of this trigger accidentally emerging would be a mathematical impossibility.

Let us say that this was triggered on the computer system of a major bank.

When the activating time arrived, everything on the bank computer would be gone. No one could access the ATM machine, cash checks, or otherwise have access to the bank’s services.

There would be mass panic and the bank’s computer people would install backup systems.

After a frenzied flurry, all would return to normal, that is until the activated triggers would work again.

Official records, social security, food stamps, passport data, criminal rap sheets, and dozens and dozens more of vital services would, in essence, be gone with the wind.

And since this project has been silently contaminating the global systems since 2001, the length and depth of the infections would be immense and all-inclusive.

Of course the Russians would be blamed but the computers would be as dead as a squashed cockroach and the entire societal global informational and business structures would gasp, gurgle and die.

People could not buy food, electrical systems would fail and soon, the woodlands of America, and the world, would be filled with frantic citizens digging caves in the soil, or places to bury their surviving family members.

The motto?

Never put all your eggs in one basket.”

The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Isaiah 40:3-8 

Washington, D.C. August 7, 2018:”In Washington today, and in what is left of the dying print media, there are two raging schools of thought. The first one is that rumors concerning Donald Trump’s preemption by the Russians is utter nonsense and totally untrue and the second one is that Donald Trump indeed was gotten at by the Russians. There is no doubt whatsoever that Wikileaks released the so-called Podesta papers, a highly negative series of emails involving Hillary Clinton and her immediate campaign oficials. This release did considerable damage to Clinton’s presidential campaign. What no one wants to admit is that Wikileaks is run by Russian intelligence and further, no one has ever effectively proven that the Podesta papers are false. Trump made many trips to Russia and was engaged in ongoing business deals with them to build one of his gaudy and tasteless hotels in Moscow. The Mueller investigations, like the Anaconda, are tightening their coils around badly frightened Trump associates and in due time, when all of them break down under threat of imprisonment, they will do so much damage to Trump’s image and persona that he will either have a fatal stroke or be impeached by Congress.”

The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Isaiah 40:3-8 

Washington, D.C. August 6, 2018:”General Douglas MacArthur, a relative by marriage to President Franklin Roosevelt, once said of him””Franklin never tells the truth when a lie would suffice.” Roosevelt is not the only President afflicted with such a failure of character; we have another such sitting in the same Oval Office Roosevelt once used. Donald Trump never tells the truth when a lie would suffice as witness his constant stream of creative, and often vicious, fictions. Although Karma is a complex concept, it is true that what goes around, comes around, and when Trump’s created world starts to collapse around him, great will be the fall thereof. And there are growing rumors inside the Beltway that Trump’s latest wife is planning to divorce him and take their son away from his negative influence and move back to Europe. If this happens, and if the Mueller (and other agency) investigations reveal to the public that which the Beltway is fully aware of, Trump will be a huge question mark for future writers. His avid far-right supporters will scream with rage and then return to milking their cows and beating their children with leather belts. And one notes that the President has a supporter who pubishes supermarket trash tabloids. The man’s last name is Pecker and someone commented to me last night that it is well-known in Washington that Trump does love a Pecker.”

The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Isaiah 40:3-8 

Washington, D.C. August 5, 2018:”The phrase ‘domestic tranquilty’ reflects the attitudes of most of the citizens of a relatively stable country.

We want matters to run smoothly, directed by a moral and reliable president and supported by an equally moral and reliable legislative and judicial.

America does not have such a desired status quo at the present time.

The primary flaw in the machinery can be found in the office of the president, equalled by other flaws in the legislative.

Trump is a pathological liar, as avowed racist, an egomaniac and, according to Beltway rumor, a person in the closet.

Also, no one who has the slightest ability to study news sources, there is no doubt that the Russians got at Mr. Trump and in return for helping to influence American voters in his favor, expected a normalization of governmental and fianacial relations between their two countries.

That the Russians made deals with Trump while he was in Moscow is beyond a doubt and now this fact is slowly emerging as official investigations proceed.

Trump is hysterical with rage and daily can be observed making false statements to the public, holding rallies with hordes of very strange far right supporters hopping about holding signs, threating anyone and everyone who dares to disagree with any of his, or his supporter’s views.

He hates blacks and Mexicans and often uses racist remarks in the Oval Office and it ought to be noted that his wife, a woman of some character, often refutes his radical and unhinged remarks and, even more imporant, keeps her attractive minor son as far away from the ideas and hands of her husband.

She is reputed to have wished to diviorce Trump and was dissuaded by the payment of a very large sum of money but she still keeps away from him and, more interesting, keeps her handsome young son as far away from the President as she can.

Eventually, and to a certainty, as the legal anaconda tightens its coils around him an his partners in crime, Trump will explode in public and at that point, all but the most dimwitted of his rural followers will desert him, and the Republican party.”

Washington, D.C. August 4, 2018:”There have been lunatic postings, aimed at easily aroused, badly-educated far right supporters of Donald Trump. This is called ‘Q-Anon’ and is designed to stuff these people with Alex Jones types of outrageous fictions to the point where there are loud public displays of what the rest of the voting public would consider to be raving lunatics. Trump’s strange rantings, semi-literate tweetings, and general bizarre behavior had caused many rumors about him to grow in Washington. One now most often heard at cocktail parties or in offices across town, is that Trump is a closeted gay with a lust for the handsome son in law, Kushner. A psychologist I spoke with said, very firmly, that men like Trump who strut around the scene, loudely slapping women on the buttocks or grabbing their breasts and proving to themselves that they really aren’t gay and by their obnoxious behavior, try desperately to convince anyone in sound of their voice that they are genuine he-men. There were several episodes when Trump was in a military academy as a young man that might give credence to this theory but we understand such matter are being prepared for publication.”

The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Isaiah 40:3-8 

Washington, D.C. August 3, 2018: “One would think by now that the facts of the 9/11 attacks were well established. One would also think that the causes and effects of the Christmas Day SEA Tsunami would be equally established. Or that the increasing risk of serious hurricanes in the southeastern part of the United States is well understood.

It has become a burgeoning industry to invent reasons and excuses for various events that have an absolute basis in ‘provable fact.’

French writers have claimed that ‘Soviet missiles’ struck the Pentagon.

They did not.

Other ‘experts’ claim that the WTC disaster was caused by: the Chinese Communists, ex-KGB personnel, the Illuminati, the CIA, the United States Army, the notorious Hidden Hand, former East German scientists, renegade Albanian goat herders, the Boy Scouts, the gay community, Satanists, trained lemurs, the Mossad, or the Mother Teresa Hate and Destruction Society of Hoboken, New Jersey.

It was not.

The same deluded people who eagerly find evil plots in earthquakes, hurricanes, terrorists, wildfires and chronic beach erosion also believe in the Return of Jesus, black helicopters, the Illuminati, the Easter Bunny, the Bilderburgers, the Trilateral Commission, the sinister, all-controlling Rothchild (or Rockefeller) family and the monumentally evil Skull and Bones society.

And there was ‘Sorcha Faal’ and the ‘Planet X’ nonsense to entertain the dimbulbs.

Such people exist in all societies and in all times.

The Greeks believed in the gods walking around Greece, fornicating with civilians and goats, the Egyptians believed in Sacred Snakes, Scientologists believe that poor, crazy and fat L. Ron Hubbard was a God Incarnate, and rabid Trump supporters believe an Internet spoof called ‘Q-Anon’ that went viral amongst the dim of wit and has many drooling at the mouth like a legion of toothless grandfathers at a Thanksgiving dinner in the assisted-living centers.

At least once a week, some poor soul in Bad Seepage, Ohio, writes an email to me wanting me to publish a twenty page illiterate rant about how the CIA and the local YMCA are destroying their shrinking brain using ‘power waves’ from secret microwave transmission towers or one gentleman in Yuma, Arizona who wants me to alert the nation to the ‘absolute fact’ that an immense army of Chinese is poised at the northern Mexican border to invade America.

All of these fantasies are attested to by non-existent ‘experts’ such as ‘Army Officers,’ ‘Famous Scientists’ or other ‘experts,’  none of whom can ever be located, probably because they are Imaginary Friends such as small children speak with while playing in the sand box.

And as an aside, it is becoming public knowledge that when Donald Trump was a small child, his parents would not allow him to play in the sandbox because when he did, all the neighbors’ cats came over and tried to cover him up.

The Internet has proven to be the greatest source of information since lunatic Christians burnt down the library of Alexandria. Anything being sought, be it an address or an in-depth analysis of Dead Sea scrolls, is there and is the main reason that the famous Encyclopedia Britannica has gone out of business.

At the same time, because it is open to one and all, the Internet is also a breeding ground for a legion of strange persons with a frantic desire to air their pet theses to impress themselves and their vacuous friends.

We see earnest discussions about the 1963 assassination of President Kennedy, the Sinister Truth about Hurricane Katrina, Tesla Death Rays used to bring down the buildings of the WTC, balanced with other information proving beyone a shadow of a doubt that Russian bombers were used. We also discover the evil plottings of the Illuminiati, a group that has been long gone, or that the Rothschild banking house had taken over the whole world. And from one source, now long  vanished, we discover that Houston was destroyed by a nuclear bomb set off by Jewish radicals or that the Fukishima disaster was really caused by an Israeli submarine, using German-made nuclear torpedoes!

Yes, the Internet can entertain as well as inform.

And psychiatrists find a good deal in it to be highly entertaining.

But the fact that the Internet has many independent news sites means the diminution of the print media and the television news stations. Since these are the propaganda control for the oligarchy, there is great distress in board rooms and from them to the halls of Congress. They would like to shut off the Internet so that the stupid, and tax-paying public can only see what they are supposed to and not what might be the truth.

Obama and Cass Sunstein tried to shut down anyone who dared to interfere with the propaganda machinery but they were not successful. Even a furious and highly delusional eccentric, Trump and his bizarre machinery, can’t do it and if they continue to try, there will be very serious public reactions indeed.”

The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Isaiah 40:3-8 

Washington, D.C. August 1, 2018: “Iran hates the United States and Israel. Iran has atomic weapons and missiles (the Shahab, courtesy of North Korean/Russian technicians) It can easily reach Tel Aviv. It can also reach US troop concentrations in Iraq. Israel is scared shitless. Their pressure groups have leaned on the White House, with a great deal of support by American neo-cons.

The actual plan, according to rumored ONI reports, is this: The U.S. has no troops available for an Iranian adventure and the Israelis would rather not lose any of their own warm bodies so…

it has been firmly decided that both Israel and the U.S. will launch a surprise attack against

1., Iranian missile sites,

  1. Iranian nuclear facilities and
  2. the leadership of Iran located in and around Tehran.

How will this be done? By aircraft attack using U.S. developed “smart bombs” and the so-called “bunker-buster” bombs designed to destroy underground reinforced concrete facilities .We have already sent these to Israel. Because of the political ramifications, the Israelis will conduct the main strikes, supported by U.S. aircraft as needed.

The aim will be to wipe out any vestige of nuclear weaponry, its delivery system and all the Iranian leaders capable of starting any attacks on Israel (mostly Tel Aviv…too many fellow Muslims in Jerusalem.) Since it would be a problem for Israeli Air Force units to fly round trip from Israel, the solution will be to launch these attacks from U.S. aircraft carriers located in the Persian Gulf area.

Unfortunately for this thesis, the mountainous area on the Iranian side of the Persian Gulf is loaded with anti-aircraft missile sites, hidden from questing satellites, that would obliterate incoming aircraft, their crews and their armaments.

Also, when, not if, the Strait of Hormuz is blocked by Iranians, any foreign naval units in the Gulf will be trapped, unable to exit and presenting tempting targets to missile attacks.

The name of this operation is ‘Alexander’ after Alexander the Great who destroyed the Persian Empire.”

Washington, D.C. August 1, 2018: “Our military is supposed to protect and defend the American people in theory but in practice, it sucks huge amounts of otherwise important tax-payer money to line their pockets and those of friendly military equipment suppliers. Ergo the many small wars against virtually defenseless countries, partially to justify the need for more and more money and partially to help friendly members of the American business community join them at the dinner table. And we are learning that members of the military, supposedly members of the defenders of the nation are selling the higest level of secrets to anyone with the money to assist their paltry life styles. Along with a vast amount of secret internet communication go a smaller amount of secrets about new weapons, military codes, deployments and many other factors that aid and assist others. Personal hands on experience with the upper levels of the military community leads only to the conclusion that patriotism is indeed not the last refuge of a scoundrel but the first.”
