If I recall correctly, Komrade Klinton took the United States from a “Launch On Warning” stance, to a stance of “Absorb a First Strike” stance. To my knowledge, that defensive posture of the United States has not been changed.
Consider: Who dies in the initial attack? Nobody.
Could you find a UN Security Council who would point the finger at Iran, and order the destruction of that country? Surely all those countries pledging to help the poor Americans, by bringing half their armed forces to our country to help to “coordinate disaster relief efforts”, have no other agenda.
Do you think our own leadership would retaliate against them? Because I very much doubt it, at this point. And even if they did, would it matter?

You are a 1% and have excellent grasp of the heinous strategy.
The moniker you chose remonds me of some 60's cartoon character I think he was a magician antagonist in an Auggie Doggy or Pixie and Dixie type cartoon.
Long time ago-And my kids are grown, so Boomerang and Cartoon network's oldies is not on anymore in the house.
And the loose corruption of the French is a given.

That would be a “Carrington Event”.
Basically, a bunch of plasma gets blown off the surface of the sun in a big solar flare event. It travels through space and, charged as it is, when it hits our magnetosphere it sets off super high frequency radio waves. These get picked up by conductors, like telegraph cables and power lines, and tend to fry anything connected to them. The cables in the 1880s (I think?) actually caught on fire they were so hot from the energy. The longer the cable, the more energy it picks up. Great big antennae.
It’s the super high frequencies that get to the microcircuitry. It pumps power across those circuits like it’s tuned to them because of the size of the waveform, or something.

Let’s dissect that for just a moment.
What, exactly, do you suppose Ted Cruz would do in this regard, were he to attain that Office?
Because here’s what *I* suspect he’d do: NOTHING.
He’d say it wasn’t suitable for the sitting President to prosecute a former President. That we had better work forward, to solve the country’s problems, than to work backward to exact justice from someone whose very death would be meaningless to rectify the wrongs he’d done to our Country.
And his Goldman Sachs wife would approve.
It might be a net improvement for us, if Cruz were in office, but I doubt it would be anything except “Less of the Same”, just like Trump is peddling. They can milk out the last dregs of our productivity, before turning off the lights.
There has just GOT to be a better way to go about this.
The decision has been made to implode the dollar. Done deal.
Now, the Islamic State gets to claim “victory”, and the Americans get to have someone to hate, because that someone “destroyed the dollar”.
Sorry, but no. That’s a false flag, when you see it.

China is going to have enough to worry about. And so are we. We are NOT too big to fail.
Think about this: If a “rogue” North Korean submarine were to launch a super-EMP weapon from somewhere off our coast line, and it made a couple hundred miles up before it went off, we’d be sitting ducks.
North Korea has this technology. They are not complete slouches, and took our research on EMP weapons and had a go at it.
What would Obama do? Nobody will have died in the attack. It was an “accident”! So, so sorry! Think we’d retaliate? Okay, great. We … nuke Pyongyang? Who cares? Kim sure as the Hell doesn’t. In one shot, the vast majority of the American people perish inside a year. Our grid is a shambles, and no amount of hand-waving will save us.
Hey, maybe China will take pity on us and absolve us of our debt. It’s not like it was real money, anyway, and we sure did pay to industrialize their country and feed them technology, didn’t we? The American sheeple are the best friends the Chinese people ever had! We gave them EVERYTHING, including the shirts off our backs, and left ourselves weak and feckless. They can laugh behind their hands while most of us die, then come in and claim the minerals they’ve been given deed to by our government.
Maybe we’ll fight another World War, to give the angry masses something to do to distract them from their economic woes. That helps keep the ruling class in every country in power. It’s Hitler’s formula, and it works.

What a maroon.
Look, in no way do I entertain the idea that the Chinese or the Russians have anything but their own interests in mind, and don’t consider the well-being of Americans when making their calculations.
That said, I have to wonder what the Hell this Walker is talking about.
We’ve been screaming at the Chinese for years to remove their dollar peg, and let the Yuan float. We accused them of currency manipulation, and made a big fuss of it. Now, when they finally DO WHAT WE ASKED THEM TO DO, we scream bloody murder and accuse them of … currency manipulation.
You durn tootin’ China is manipulating their currency. So is Russia.
AND SO IS EVERY OTHER NATION ON THE PLANET, INCLUDING AND ESPECIALLY THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
The real problem here is that there is no common referent for value. This is merely the functioning of a fiat currency system nearing its collapse. We can’t blame China for their economy going in the crapper. It’s not like the Chinese people want it to happen. It’s not like the Chinese government wants it to happen, either. A collapsed economy tends to fan the flames of revolution, you see. And you will see. Trust me on this.
We’re playing games in the oil markets, having Saudi Arabia open the taps and flood the world in oil. This knocks the Hell out of Russia’s economic power. In return, Saudi Arabia gets to fund a Jihadist movement in the middle east, rout out the remnants of Christianity, and kill ‘em lots of Shia.

Makes me want to go back to school.

Do you have a source for that?

We’ve already seen a taste of what is in store for China if they go along with the plan to dump the dollar. Tianjin is a lesson.

It’s dumb, but it’s awesome.
I especially liked the organizer. “Yeah. Yeah, I think they would.”, when asked if the pigs would voluntarily engage in this sport. My kinda classy.
My own pigs get spoiled so that they come visiting us at camp if the range cows stomp up their pen.
These country boys should have made sport of putting the protester in the pig barrel. That’s the only criticism they’ll get from me.
Greasing up a watermelon and chasing it around a lake is great fun also. Learned that one in scouts.

The difference is, we had REASON to back our viewpoints. Once you get beyond the side-show, the Trumped-Up got nothin’. :-)
 August 14, 2015 at 2:06am
Either explanation is as likely. Seen Coulter’s Adam’s apple and man-hands lately?
I like ‘em big blocks. Pontiacs are my favorite. :-)

To me, Cruz has the same flavor as George H. W. Bush. The same as Lyndon Baynes Johnson.
Carson might be safe, because he’d essentially be a puppet for the establishment. He has no political experience, and no brass. He’s wise, but ultimately too soft for that game. He would not be the one in control. He’d be a figurehead. Someone (Rand Paul) who has political conviction, who would audit the Fed and jail the bankers, would find himself an unfortunate victim of some kind of attack. But, that’d be okay because we’d have Good Ol’ Ted right there, with his banker wife, to keep a hand on the rudder.

Here’s the poop on Trump.
He’s a plant. He has swagger, and he makes grunting sounds the rest of the chimps like, and they’re all hooting and hollering with him now. Hey, lots of what he says is correct. That does not mean that all of what he says is correct. It is the omissions that worry me most.
The bankers are almost done with us. We’re going to have some kind of nuclear finale with Russia — some limited exchange which will plunge us into a police state and them further into Putin’s hands. Probably an EMP (that we’ll probably deserve, since we haven’t yet reigned in this menace in Washington and on Wall Street and in the halls of the Federal Reserve). Nobody actually dies in the blowoff, except those unfortunate enough to be flying. Okay, we can peace our way out of this, or maybe respond in kind (Russia has recently hardened its grid, and has been on a spree of building bunkers and fallout shelters in recent years). Remember, Obama has flexibility now that he’s past his last election, and that message was surely transmitted to Vladimir.
What does this have to do with Trump? He can win the next election, and the American people get to see what a REAL “Republican” is like. While we are rioting and railing against our chains we’ve welded on ourselves, “Republican” Donald Trump will be jet-setting around the world, throwing big bashes, getting us into wars the bankers want, and doing all the stuff Obama is doing now, but it’ll be bad because “Republican”.
You were really on track with your first paragraph, then something happened.

What else would you have people do? Not satisfied with Jeb? Don’t vote for him. It’s our right (much to the chagrin of the Republican establishment). What’s the alternative? Hillary? Nope. Can’t do that, either. There must be an alternative, because the center of the two-party-one-party system will not hold. Trump is in a good position to destroy both parties, and open up the game.
I’m a Paultroon, but I appreciate what Trump is doing (though I doubt his motivations for doing so are benevolent).
