Goodbye, kind world (George Monbiot) - In common with all those generations which have contemplated catastrophe, we appear to be incapable of understanding what confronts us.




I hope they aren't like the emperor's fabled new clothes.


Will Joe Biden's foreign policy team be warmongers — or genuine peacemakers?

Warmongers.

Why should Biden's* policies be any different than Hillary's or Obama's? He's controlled by the same people.

As I posted in another thread, Trump was trying to split Russia from China (maximum pressure on China, less on Russia). Biden* is going to try to split China from Russia by easing up on China and trying to welcome them back into the fold. That's my guess, anyway.

Whether China will be taken in by this gambit is anyone's guess. But my guess is that they'll use the situation to get maximum benefit from the USA without ever really splitting from Russia.

With no new wars, I was looking forward to Trump cutting the defense budget and bringing the troops home. Oops! The budget's bigger and troops aren't home.

US election 2020: Has Trump kept his promises on the military?
https://www.bbc.com/news/election-us-2020-54060026
Military spending has steadily increased since President Trump took office in January 2017.
The reduction of troops was much greater under President Obama, as both large-scale deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan ended during his years in charge.

If such fun happens, it is the fault of Congress. More specifically, the GOP controlled Senate. The Constitution placed the control of the military budget in Congress, not the White House. And Declarations of Wars comes from Congress, not the White House. Congress can remove a President who acts as if he controls the budget and war declarations. Even Congress knows it, but doesn't act as if it knows anything. Check their website:

https://history.house.gov/Institution/Origins-Development/War-Powers/

“The Congress shall have Power . . . To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules conquering Captures on Land and Water;
“To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years;
“To provide and maintain a Navy;
“To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces;
“To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;
“To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress”
—U.S. Constitution, Article I, section 8, clauses 11–16

Like many powers articulated in the U.S. Constitution, Congress’ authority to declare war was revolutionary in its design, and a clear break from the past when a handful of European monarchs controlled the continent’s affairs.

Their masters are their voters and their voters know in their hearts that nuking women and children in Japan was a highly moral act.

Take a look at the research about how bloodthirsty Americans are. Americans like killing civilians:

Example: In 1945, a Gallup poll immediately after the bombing found that 85% of Americans approved of using the new atomic weapon on Japanese cities. In 1991, according to a Detroit Free Press survey conducted in both Japan and the U.S., 63% of Americans said the atomic bomb attacks on Japan were a justified means of ending the war, while only 29% thought the action was unjustified.
www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2015/08/04/70-years-after-hiroshima-opin
ions-have-shifted-on-use-of-atomic-bomb
/

Example: 59.3% percent approved of killing 100,000 Iranian civilians to save 20,000 U.S. soldiers.
http://large.stanford.edu/courses/2019/ph241/mangiaracina2/

Example: “The most shocking finding of our study is that 60 percent of Americans would approve of killing 2 million Iranian civilians to prevent an invasion of Iran that might kill 20,000 U.S. soldiers.”
https://news.stanford.edu/2017/08/08/americans-weigh-nuclear-war/

I am not even going to talk about the millions of Vietnamese/Laotian/Cambodian civilians killed by America in a vain attempt to look tough. By the way, that war was lost and the Americans that I know who have some slight familiarity with that war still think to this day the war would have been won if only a few million more civilians were killed. These are not real clear thinking Americans. But they do vote and they want killers of civilians as their politicians, either Democrat or Republican.

As usual for 6ix, who is a goddamn idiot missing the point: “The most shocking finding of our study is that 60 percent of Americans would approve of killing 2 million Iranian civilians to prevent an invasion of Iran that might kill 20,000 U.S. soldiers.”
https://news.stanford.edu/2017/08/08/americans-weigh-nuclear-war/

I let 6ix continue to be confused about why it is wrong to kill 2,000,000 people who don't deserve it and why it is also equally wrong to NOT kill 1 fat dumb fucker who does deserve it. Got to give an example:

The Deaths of 150,000 Americans Are on Trump’s Hands
Trump and his lackeys are guilty of criminal negligence, if not far worse. Who will hold them accountable?

I realize that Joe Biden just held a press conference where he basically dismissed the refusal of Trump and a lot of other Republicans to concede the presidential election to Biden as "embarrassing," laughing at SecState Pompeo who earlier today talked about a transition to a second Trump term, and said it will all be over and fine by Jan. 20. Maybe, but I am somebody who has taken seriously for a long time words from people like Michael Cohen and more recently Mary Trump who have said he simply will not go willingly and will continue to refuse to accept defeat. I have watched various commentators supporting him from time to time thinking, "Will they support him if he declares martial law?" Unfortunately, I think a lot of them will.

He certainly is laying the groundwork for making an attempt. The obvious such sign was yesterday's firing of SecDef Esper, reportedly because Esper made it clear in June he would not order US troops to move on peaceful civilian demonstraters in Washington. Rumor has it he is about to replace the FBI and CIA directors also. And the Undersec of DOD is also out. It certainly looks like he is trying to stock the top levels of the military and intelligence establishment with total toadies who will do his bidding. If he makes the move and invokes the Insurrection Act or simply declares a National Emergency, which, frankly, is in his legal power. Will these newly installed flunkies stand up to him? Who will?

I am seriously worried about this, and the more I see people like Mitch McConnell and Sean Hannity just spouting rank lies about the election, my concern grows. I hope I am wrong, but I am now afraid we may be facing a very serious showdown over this, and I see the refusal of certain foreign authoritarian leaders friendly to Trump, such as Putin, not accepting the result, as a sign that they would support him if he made such a move, and we know he really likes and admires those guys. This is a very bad situation.

Trump’s legal challenges won’t change election’s results. The president’s efforts to contest the results “are unlikely to move a single state from [Joe] Biden’s column,” and that challenges in states like Pennsylvania and Wisconsin are “not enough to change the final outcome.” Trump campaign and its supporters have filed state and federal lawsuits, seeking to have ballots and entire county elections declared invalid, but have yet to provide evidence of widespread voter or election fraud. As MarketWatch reports, Trump and his backers have not won any rulings.

elections-results-karl-rove-11605192821


Here’s Why Donald Trump Will Never Give Up

What exactly are we witnessing here? Is this an attempted coup — a real effort by President Trump to cling to power despite the outcome of the election? Or is it a pathetic, doomed-to-fail tantrum by a petulant sore loser who will soon cave under pressure?

It’s neither. The real answer requires us to take seriously what so many of us have been saying all along: Donald Trump is nuts. To put it a little more conventionally, he’s such an extreme narcissist that he can’t believe he lost. He literally can’t believe he lost. So his brain makes up stories for him, and the only plausible story in the face of hard numbers is that his enemies cheated. So that’s what he believes. And he’ll believe it forever. There’s no more chance of changing his mind on this than there is of changing the mind of someone in an asylum who believes he’s Jesus Christ.

As usual, though, this leads us back to the real question: why is nearly the entire Republican Party humoring him on this? Since they aren’t collectively insane, the only answer is that they’re willing to sacrifice the public’s belief in democracy for short-term partisan gain. That isn’t nuts. It’s just despicable.

AFAIK recounts must be done where required or requested, according to state laws. Vote totals must be certified. There's a lot that has to happen before the voting is considered done.

The Biden administration faces major calls for reform and racial justice after a summer of protests decrying police brutality/systemic racism. Biden hasn't backed the defunding the police movement completely but is seeking to pass police reform legislation including a nationwide ban on chokeholds. If the GOP controlled Senate won't cooperate by passing laws, AND IT WON'T, Biden can do nothing. What BLM will do next is get angry at Biden, not realizing that it is the GOP that BLM should be angry with. Next step is for BLM to boycott Biden in 2024 because the GOP didn't pass legislation, which means BLM will defeat itself and help elect a Republican, maybe even Trump in 2024. And so the pendulum swings back to the GOP in 2024 or no later than 2028. It always swings back.

Goodbye, kind world (George Monbiot) - In common with all those generations which have contemplated catastrophe, we appear to be incapable of understanding what confronts us.



Philosopher Hannah Arendt once wrote about the banality of evil ...


Pentagon

For the defense chief post, the Washington Post has portrayed the banal face of Michele Flournoy as the pick to 'restore stability' to the Pentagon, an entirely false assertion. Recall that Fluornoy promotes unilateral global US military intervention, and advocated the destruction of Libya in 2011. By the military-industrial revolving door, Flournoy enabled many Corporate weaponry contracts amounting to tens of millions. Likewise Fluornoy is on the Booz-Hamilton board, where the swamp cannot get any deeper. As if this wretched example of an agent-provocateur for war and destruction were not bad enough, Biden is reportedly considering Lockheed-Martin banal kingpin Jeh Johnson for the DoD position, too.

State

From Libya to Syria, Yemen, Ukraine and beyond, the banality of evil is perhaps best personified by Susan Rice – apparently Biden’s premiere pick for Secretary. Rice was an abject failure at the United Nations, but all seems forgiven, probably at the behest of Biden’s donors. After her failure at the UN, Obama kicked Rice upstairs to be his National Security Advisor, a position that does not require Senate approval.
An obvious war hawk in the mold of the Democrat’s donor class, a Rice appointment could reinforce the liberal mantra that women can be just as good at interventionism as men, and ensure full re-establishment of the Neoliberal agenda in Washington. John Kerry has been flagged as a potential for State (again) too, but at age 77 and subsequent to the failure of the JCPOA Kerry is an unlikely pick.
Another potential pick among the banal Daughters of Darkness is Victoria Kagan-Nuland, architect of the 2014 debacle in Ukraine (among other things).

National Security Advisor

Banality is certainly the mark of the beast here, in the form of Tony Blinken. Well in with Michele Flournoy (above) Blinken typifies the type of banality the Deep State engages in to promote its evil, with Blinken as successful as any other Deep State actor. A major hawk on Russia and war hawk in general, Blinken is an apologist for Israel. Blinken is a war hawk on Afghanistan and Syria too, and Blinken was directly involved in CIA operation Timber Sycamore. Oh, the banality.
Another model of banality is Leon CIA Panetta who so far claims that cruising the Monterey peninsula is more fun that being in Washington. But we know that’s false and Panetta would be a logical pick. Besides being a hawk on everything, and laughing about the fact he has no idea how many wars Obama’s America was fighting – because he lost count – Panetta is simply another sycophant for evil like Hannah Arendt portrayed in her study of Adolf Eichmann.

CIA

Banal of the banal is of course Mike Morell. This incredibly vacuous excuse for a human being has been hate-mongering for years. Beside his blatant pandering support for another banal and brutal warmonger – Hillary Clinton – Mike Morell is one Neoliberal who still maintains that Saddam Hussein actively aided and abetted al Qaeda with regard to the 911 attacks.

So, just to continue this thought ...

As I posted elsewhere I'm really hoping the Democrats* win both US Senate seats in Georgia, because I want them to stop hiding behind a Republican Senate and show us what they're truly made of - just like they did the first 2 years under Obama. And I want it to be obvious that the first 2 years under Obama were no fluke.

But the m$m has been awfully quiet about those races. It may be that they're already predicting at least one republican win, perhaps 2. http://www.fireflyfans.net/mthread.aspx?tid=64070


In any case, I see a backstop being constructed, because after the completely unanticipated Trump win in 2016, no eventuality can be left to chance!

And that's the "recently" discovered SolarWinds hack, which - god forbid - can't be attributed to bad software and maybe even a bad (Microsoft) OS. Nope! The RUSSIANS!!! done doed it, whether they did or not! And some Democratic* Senators are already calling it an act of war. https://thehill.com/policy/cybersecurity/530784-lawmakers-ask-whether-
massive-hack-amounted-to-act-of-war


So, forget about any promises made!! Because ... RUSSIA!!!

The other thing I've noticed is the selection of sacrificial Cabinet members. Given a republican-controlled Senate (which I believe we'll have), just like the meaningless virtue-signalling legislation of the House, these proposed appointees were put forward to indicate Biden* really, really, REALLY wants to make good on his promises. Really! Truly! Not that he'll actually campaign for them or use the power of his bully-pulpit or anything. Nope, he'll quietly and meekly fold his hands.




If democrats* don't do any different, how are they any better?

Speaking of M$...

Fun Fact: Did you know that the reason Windows XP was supported far longer than any other Microsoft OS was because it was installed on the vast majority of ATM machines in the US and if they didn't constantly upgrade and patch it everyone's bank accounts could have been hacked?

XP was introduced in 2001 and was still alive and kicking after Vista, 7, 8 and 8.1 were released. Windows 10 came out only a year after XP was finally discontinued.

Thanks to House democrats* that overwhelmingly voted to override Trump's defense policy veto "The House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly (322-87) to override President Donald Trump’s veto of a defense policy bill" where only "Twenty Democrats opposed the override, along with 66 Republicans and an independent" https://apicciano.commons.gc.cuny.edu/2020/12/29/democrats-and-republi
cans-in-the-house-of-representatives-rebuke-trump-and-override-his-veto-of-defense-bill
/ ...

It went to the Senate that voted "81-13 to secure the two-thirds majority" where "Seven Republicans joined five Democrats and Sanders" in opposition. https://timesofsandiego.com/politics/2021/01/01/gop-rebukes-trump-as-s
enate-votes-83-13-to-override-his-veto-of-defense-bill
/

Make no mistake, the democratic* warhawks could have EASILY made sure Trump's veto stood. But they didn't because they are the party of war.

Oh and as an indication of the rabidity of the democratic* warhawks, "Nancy Pelosi* called the congressional vote “a resounding rebuke to President Trump’s reckless assault on America’s military and national security.”"

Expect to see more RUSSIA!!!RUSSIA!!!RUSSIA!!! in US news and in US policy, as well as MORE WAR!!! everywhere.
