Why the F-35’s totally inadequate capabilities don’t matter to MIC :
The MIC seems to be successful in its false flags and guiding Trump :
Although not so successful in actually fighting ISIS :
Libertarians have it right, when they aren’t being theoretical and ideological, their huge failure in connecting to other people’s minds, or trying to be part of the establishment like last election :
Whitehead is excellent, as usual :
Another good link from Western Riffle Shooters. WRSA’s proprietor has excellent taste in links, imho, and not just because he publishes my posts, infrequently. I must say, wrt the young man in the article, he has adapted admirably to the values that got him into Stanford. Putting him down is wrong, he is too young to have a clue about any of it. Kids like that are cannon fodder on all sides in every war, and we can’t blame them for the wars or for their idealisms.

The CIA’s propaganda arm must be out of tools, they can’t expect the world to be less critical the Nth time. Reporters must like the stories, I have read minor variations of these so often :
And also this one. Any pension that allows taking a lump sum will soon experience what happened in Dallas, the rest will just reduce their payouts, sometimes in large drops. How many articles were written warning about under-funding of pensions, the fund’s expectations of 8% returns compounded being unrealistic? Just now we get excited?
The politicians need the wars to keep our minds off of how stupidly they have managed the country :
Google’s Tensor Processing Unit is getting a lot of attention. NSA must have done this for AES and the other standard cyphers in order to crack passwords :
Several links today have come from Western Rifle again. Another in his focus on on-line security in an age of ubiquitous surveillance :
