I will give you credit where credit is due, you, after all, when every conceivable outlet was saying war with Iran is imminent, war any moment, any week now, it's not if it's just when, were coming out with pieces in which you adamantly called this bullshit and said that the fervour that had been whipped up was sensationalised baseless fear mongering. You, of course, were spot on in your assertions there.
Here is the alternative channels are running with this....(I am ignoring the left) or should I say the political left and the the thought police left who are foolishly and blindly stooges of the rotten swamp and simply convey what others are saying. They are either of the same opinion of you, albeit theirs is led on more of a hopium, or they are saying that Trump and his team are deliberately creating storm clouds to distract you from the real whirl wind of escalation they are going to unleash on the world namely towards China.
I, for what it's worth, see just far too many things which are too unconventional, see way too many mad crazed faces and reactions from the Washington and British alike elite for this to be some kind of show. I see far too many of the establishment media, the television channels, celebrity's sports stars etc being mobilised against him and in turn who whip up violent fervour for this not to be real. However, without wanting to appear like a stuck record, those statements that Bannon has made are deeply troubling.
Playing devils advocate of course, there are some who would point to my previous paragraph and say yes, the general level of hate is real and they do want to whip up a hysteria because the financial world of the west is so out of kilter that they want this to incrementally build until it boils over and therefore attributing the collapse to Donald Trump.
We shall watch the coming couple of months with intrigue over what goes down I guess. However I will say that "this time things are different" for better or for worse.
kiwikeith Loved the way he stood up to O’Reilly on Fox News with the Putin baiting.
Awesome. That was a moment, wasn't it?
Mainstream wouldn't dare discuss it properly. Demonized it to deflect it.
Another stunning display of the specific skill which won him the election.
It's a skill of knowing instinctively how to strip the BS out and then
totally nail a lying piece-of-shit mindset that's overdue retirement.
And knowing when enough people will back ditching a convenient truth
which they have believed without inner enthusiasm for too long now.

It is quite pathetic and sad how much energy, brainpower and resources go into message control and scheming. _________________ "Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend." - Bruce Lee
