The short answer for me about the Iran Nuclear Deal is that I don't have an opinion on it as being either good or bad. It's why I spoke so little about it. To me the whole thing seemed like a big show between two sides not willing to give up anything of value to … Continue reading Gold Goats ‘n Guns Live – Trump Ditches JCPOA, What’s Next?
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu just wasted 30 minutes telling the world what we already knew about Iran's quest for a nuclear weapon. And that this justifies every action they and the U.S. takes in their quest to stop this from occurring. The narrative has been spun up today is that time has run out for … Continue reading Gold Goats ‘n Guns Live – Israel Amps Up the Anti-Iran Rhetoric, Saudis Go Full Disinformation
I told you over the weekend that Trump's presidency was over. As a practical matter it is. His yielding to his 'advisors' on every foreign policy issue makes it clear that he can't or won't stand up to the relentless pressure to do what his instincts tell him. This morning's article at the Deep State Washington … Continue reading The Neocons’ Real Plan for Syria Emerges from the Lack of Rubble
Last night's strikes on Damascus could have been orders of magnitude worse than they were. But, don't let the MAGA crowd delude you into thinking that President Trump still has much, if any, control over the situation. Most of those mouth-breathing morons have no clue as to how foreign policy is actually conducted and believe … Continue reading Gold Goats ‘n Guns Live – Thank the Gods for President Mattis. Trump is Over
Last night’s attack on Damascus was chilling. No question. It dredged up the worst possible scenarios from our sub-conscious and for a few hours made them real.

I reiterate what I said … Continue reading Trump is Done, Mattis Won, Thank the Gods
The other day I laid out my read on the current situation in the White House. And it wasn’t good. President Trump looks like a man completely surrounded by jackals and piranha, tearing pieces off of him until there’s nothing left but a skeleton of the man we elected to the Drain the Swamp and … Continue reading Will Trump and Mattis Run Out the Neocon’s Doomsday Clock?
Following up on yesterday's post I want to clarify how important it is for us to dig in and find that thing we should be doing to stop the push for perpetual war for perpetual serfdom. I made a lot of people mad with that piece. It challenges many preconceptions. It may be mad conjecture … Continue reading Gold Goats ‘n Guns Live – Has the Coup Against Trump Succeeded? Should We Stay Quiet?
In Vietnam, the wind doesn't blow... it sucks. -- Tag Line for Stanley Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket" When I wrote a few weeks ago that I thought the Neocons were making the full-court press for war I thought President Trump was a reluctant player in the game. Part of me still believes that. Part of … Continue reading The Harder the Winds of War Blow, the More they Suck
