I supported Trump and opposed Clinton over US Middle East policy. Trump promised to get out of Afghanistan. What has changed?


The Lies on Afghanistan

There has never been progress by the U.S. military in Afghanistan, unless you are asking the U.S. military contractors or the Afghan drug barons, of whom an extremely large share are our allies in the Afghan government, militias and security forces, there has only been suffering and destruction. American politicians, pundits and generals will speak about “progress” made by the 70,000 American troops put into Afghanistan by President Obama beginning in 2009, along with an additional 30,000 European troops and 100,000 private contractors, however the hard and awful true reality is that the war in Afghanistan has only escalated since 2009, never stabilizing or deescalating; the Taliban has increased in strength by tens of thousands, despite tens of thousands of casualties and prisoners; and American and Afghan casualties have continued to grow every year of the conflict, with U.S. casualties declining only when U.S. forces began to withdraw in mass numbers from parts of Afghanistan in 2011, while Afghan security forces and civilians have experienced record casualties every year since those numbers began to be kept by the UN.

Similarly, any progress in reconstructing or developing Afghanistan has been found to be non existent despite the more than $100 billion spent by the United States on such efforts by the Special Inspector General for Afghan Reconstruction (SIGAR). $100 billion, by the way, is more money than was spent on the Marshall Plan when that post-WWII reconstruction plan is put into inflation adjusted dollars. Oft repeated claims, such as millions of Afghan school girls going to school, millions of Afghans having access to improved health care and Afghan life expectancy dramatically increasing, and the construction of an Afghan job building economy have been exposed as nothing more than public relations lies. Often displayed as modern Potemkin Villages to visiting journalists and congressional delegations and utilized to justify continued budgets for the Pentagon and USAID, and, so, to allow for more killing, like America’s reconstruction program in Iraq, the reconstruction program in Afghanistan has proven to be a failure and its supposed achievements shown to be virtually non-existent, as documented by multiple investigations by SIGAR, as well as by investigators and researchers from organizations such as the UN, EU, IMF, World Bank, etc.

Tonight, the American people will hear again the great lie about the progress the American military once made in Afghanistan after “the Afghan Surge”, just as we often hear the lie about how the American military had “won” in Iraq. In Iraq it was a political compromise that brought about a cessation of hostilities for a few short years and it was the collapse of the political balance that had been struck that led to the return to the violence of the last several years. In Afghanistan there has never even been an attempt at such a political solution and all the Afghan people have seen in the last eight years, every year, has been a worsening of the violence.

Americans will also hear tonight how the U.S. military has done great things for the Afghan people. You would be hard pressed to find many Afghans outside of the incredibly corrupt and illegitimate government, a better definition of a kleptocracy you will not find, that the U.S. keeps in power with its soldiers and $35 billion a year, who would agree with the statements of the American politicians, the American generals and the pundits, the latter of which are mostly funded, directly or indirectly, by the military companies. It is important to remember that for three straight elections in Afghanistan the United States government has supported shockingly fraudulent elections, allowing American soldiers to kill and die while presidential and parliamentary elections were brazenly stolen. It is also important to remember that many members of the Afghan government are themselves warlords and drug barons, many of them guilty of some of the worst human rights abuses and war crimes, the same abuses of which the Taliban are guilty, while the current Ghani government, and the previous Karzai government, have allowed egregious crimes to continue against women, including laws that allow men to legally rape their wives.

Whatever President Trump announces tonight about Afghanistan, a decision he teased on Twitter, as if the announcement were a new retail product launch or television show episode, as opposed to the somber and painful reality of war, we can be assured the lies about American progress in Afghanistan will continue, the lies about America’s commitment to human rights and democratic values will continue, the profits of the military companies and drug barons will also continue, and of course the suffering of the Afghan people will surely continue.

"WE Can't Take it Anymore"

Trump: 'Gonna win so much people will say we can't take it anymore'




"I'M SOOO TIRED"





"I'm So Tired"

I'm so tired, I haven't slept a wink
I'm so tired, my mind is on the blink
I wonder should I get up and fix myself a drink
No, no, no

I'm so tired I don't know what to do
I'm so tired my mind is set on you
I wonder should I call you but I know what you would do

You'd say I'm putting you on
But it's no joke, it's doing me harm
You know I can't sleep, I can't stop my brain
You know it's three weeks, I'm going insane
You know I'd give you everything I've got
For a little peace of mind

I'm so tired, I'm feeling so upset
Although I'm so tired I'll have another cigarette
And curse Sir Walter Raleigh
He was such a stupid git

You'd say I'm putting you on
But it's no joke, it's doing me harm
You know I can't sleep, I can't stop my brain
You know it's three weeks, I'm going insane
You know I'd give you everything I've got
For a little peace of mind
I'd give you everything I've got
For a little peace of mind
I'd give you everything I've got
For a little peace of mind

(Monsieur, Monsieur, Monsieur, how about another one?)

Why? Why Not?

Why does the universe exist? Physicists have found the answer and it will blow your mind


QUANTUM physicists have finally answered the biggest question of them all – why is there a universe?








An explanation of pop-up particles known as Quarks 



The puzzle of why there is something rather than nothing – from which all the biggest questions of metaphysics spring such as ‘where did we come from?’ ‘why are we conscious?’ – has been largely solved by scientists studying the physics of the infinitesimally small – and applying them to the incomprehensibly large.
These Quantum physicists first theorised, then proved, that particles simply pop into existence, usually in pairs, from absolutely nowhere.
Indeed they have theorised further that the universe really does not like ‘nothing’ – and perhaps the state of nothingness is an impossible state. 
These pop-up particles are known as Quarks and they make up wisps of existence known as Mesons and Baryons.

Ultimate free lunch: The universe came from absolutely nothing
The new findings seem to break the classical physics law of the Conservation of Energy – that energy can neither be created nor destroyed – showing that new energy can appear within a closed system from nowhere.
And scientists have theorised that the once this principle is proven the rest is just a matter of scale.

A spokesman for science explainer channel Strange Mysteries said: “According to quantum mechanics the idea of nothingness persisting for all time is unrealistic as there’s no such thing as empty space.“Even in a perfect vacuum particles and anti-particles flash in and out of existence, and they return to no-where when they’re done.

“Stephen Hawking found that space is unstable. Empty space, in time, eventually starts to froth and bubble.

“These bubbles of spacetime form particles out of nothing just like those weird particles, and we think a similar bubble may have formed out of nothing to create our entire universe.”

Nobel prize winner Frank Wilczek of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who specialises is quantum chromodynamics, the theory that describes how quarks behave deep within atomic nuclei, has found that the universe simply doesn’t like a state of nothingness.

Something – existence – seems far preferable.

He said: “You can form a state that has no quarks and antiquarks in it, and it’s totally unstable.

“It spontaneously starts producing quark-antiquark pairs.” 

Victor Stenger, a physicist at the University of Colorado in Boulder added: “Something is the more natural state than nothing.

“According to quantum theory, there is no state of ’emptiness’,” 
Professor Wilczek added: “There is no barrier between nothing and a rich universe full of matter.

“Perhaps the big bang was just nothingness doing what comes naturally”
Many quantum physicists have even drawn the conclusion that nothingness itself cannot exist.

Mr Universe: Everything, including us, from a bubble in spacetime?
Quantum physics involves a trade off between time and energy - something that lasts a long time must have little energy and vice versa.

The universe is more than 13 billions years old which suggests very low energies.
The instant after the Big Bang, know as Inflation, was a period of massive energy and expansion but the negative energy of gravity precisely cancelled this out – leaving a zero sum.

The zero sum actually gets around the Conservation of Energy problem because if there is zero overall energy to conserve, the problem evaporates – and a universe that simply popped out of nothing becomes not just plausible, but probable.
Alan Guth, a cosmologist at MIT who came up with the inflation theory 30 years ago said:  “I like to say that the universe is the ultimate free lunch
“Maybe a better way of saying it is that something IS nothing.”

Charlottesville Police and Their Failed Democrat Political Leadership Fled the Scene

Charlottesville Police Called Off When Violence Began: “We’re Leaving, It’s Too Dangerous”

Content originally published at iBankCoin.com

Fox News reporter Doug McKelway was in attendance during yesterday’s deadly events in Charlottesville, VA, where he reported that the police were called off as soon as things started turning violent.

“But when the tear gas started to fly, thrown by protesters, the police themselves began to evacuate then. I asked the guy who was in charge, “Where you going?” He said, “We’re leaving. It’s too dangerous. They had a chance to nip this thing in the bud and they chose not to.People were throwing soda cans filled with cement…  

Of note, "Unite the right" held a rally which was legally organized with a permit from the city, as was their first amendment right to do so, and Antifa showed up with cement-filled cans and other weapons with plans to violently protest the event - creating a dangerous atmosphere which the police did nothing to control.

Stand Down
The ACLU confirmed that Charlottesville police were ordered to stand down, which allowed the KKK and Antifa to meet face to face with no interference.

Some have suggested that the violent atmosphere and lack of police presence was a factor in the decision and ability of 20 year old white supremacist James Alex Fields to drive his 2010 Dodge Challenger into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing 32 year old paralegal Heather Heyer and injuring dozens of others.

Don't divert from the party line on Charlottesville.



THE CAST OF CHARACTERS IN CHARLOTTESVILLE VA.

  • GOVERNOR OF COMMONWEALTH: Terry McAuliffe (D) (McAuliffe's response that law enforcement's handling of the violence was successful because there were no bullets fired and "zero property damage") McAuliffe is white.
  • ATTORNEY GENERAL VIRGINIA: Mark Herring (D) Previously, he served in the Senate of Virginia since a 2006 special election. Herring is White.
  • MAYOR: Michael Signer (D) is the mayor of Charlottesville, Virginia and an author, advocate, political theorist, and attorney. He is a Virginia Democratic activist and former candidate for lieutenant governor. Signer is white.
  • VICE MAYOR - Wes Bellamy, (D) (Charlottesville Vice Mayor Wes Bellamy repeatedly calls Trump '45', refuses to call him president) Bellamy is black.
  • CITY MANAGER: Maurice Jones (D) first served February, 2008 to April, 2010  as Assistant City Manager. Charged with leading the City’s community relations efforts, Maurice served as the primary staff contact on the City’s Dialogue on Race initiative; worked closely with Police Chief Timothy Longo to establish the Citizens Advisory Panel; managed the City’s Quality of Service and Efficiency Study; and worked with neighborhood associations and residents on variety of community issues. Jones is black.
  • POLICE CHIEF: Chief Al S. Thomas Jr. (D) Currently chief of the Lexington Police Department,  Charlottesville’s first black police chief.Thomas is black.

Now I ask a question: Who is responsible to maintain law and order in the City of Charlottesville, in The Commonwealth of Virginia?

Obviously it is Trump's fault.
