The Empire's Suez Crisis

Sep 17, 2018 - Legal Bribery

Read this great, short explanation of a key problem in our corrupt legal system. Here is part:

"Suppose a federal prosecutor says to a witness, “You are facing life in prison on the charges we have brought against you. But if you ‘cooperate’ with us to get John Doe, we will adjust the charges so that the most the judge can do is send you to jail for only 5 years at most. If you are really ‘cooperative,’ we will recommend that the judge give you the lowest possible sentence, perhaps even probation. Oh, one more thing, we want to make it clear that we do want you to tell the truth.”

This is not a rare event, it occurs in most federal cases, and is the key part when the prosecutor lacks evidence, as in the current case of the Mueller witch-hunt in Washington DC.

Sep 16, 2018 - One More Loss

The Battle for Chu Moor Mountain - In April of 1968 near the Cambodian border, the 1st Battalion of the 22nd Infantry discovered well-armed NVA dug into a mountain. They launched several bloody attacks and fended off counterattacks for days suffering 31 killed and hundreds wounded. Other battalions were flown in and suffered casualties until all units were pulled back and B-52 strikes ordered as the NVA withdrew.

Here is an interesting on-line book about NVA fortification techniques during that war.

Sep 10, 2018 - Now 108 Lost Battles

Two more just added to my series: Lost Battles of the Vietnam War. Nearly half these losses were due to the mindless overuse of helicopters in Vietnam. Our military didn't employ mounted cavalry in Vietnam despite its advantage of greater mobility because encountering an enemy while atop horses was foolish. For unknown reasons, senior officers failed to grasp that landing helicopters full of troops near enemy forces was equally foolish.

The Battle for Nui Yon Hill - On May 5, 1969, units of the 1st Squadron, 1st Cavalry were ordered to clear Viet Cong from Nui Yon Hill, which they recently captured from the ARVN.  (pictured) After the initial assault failed, the 3rd Battalion, 21st Infantry Regiment was air assaulted in to reinforce the 1st Cavalry. The hill was taken, yet units suffered 40% casualties with 28 GIs killed and hundreds wounded.

Operation Beau Charger - This was part of a larger operation near the DMZ. The Marines launched 14 helicopters from ships offshore to deposit 1st Battalion, 3rd Marines into LZ Goose. Unfortunately, the NVA were there and opened fire on the helicopters as they landed on May 18, 1967. Half were damaged and only a few dozen Marines landed. This quickly became a complex rescue operation that cost the lives of 85 Marines with hundreds wounded.

Sep 9, 2018 - Constant Propaganda

Demonizing Iran is continuous in the American media. Iran ships weapons to its allies in Syria and Lebanon, which is not illegal, and is a small fraction of the tens of billions of dollars in weapons the USA ships to dictators and terror groups in the Middle East. In a recent story, Iran used two huge 747 commercial aircraft that landed at the big Beirut airport to deliver manufacturing tools. The aircraft took the safest route by flying over Turkey to avoid Israeli fighter aircraft that conduct illegal flights over Lebanon and Syria every day.

This is not news, except at Fox News, where they report anonymous "intelligence" sources explained this was "smuggling", even though it is not banned and Fox presented no proof of dangerous cargo. A route map of these scheduled flights showed these big aircraft mostly flew over our NATO ally Turkey and near a US Air Force base. Yet Fox warns of devious Iranians: "A regional intelligence source who asked to remain anonymous said: “The Iranians are trying to come up with new ways and routes to smuggle weapons from Iran to its allies in the Middle East, testing and defying the West’s abilities to track them down.” The article does not explain why NATO and the US Air Force is unable to track huge Iranian 747s flying over Turkey.

This news report notes: "The United States is Lebanon’s primary security partner, according to the State Department. Since 2006, the U.S. has provided Lebanon over $1.7 billion in security assistance." Yet the news report fails to highlight this irony. The USA sends millions of dollars in military aid to Lebanon, yet it can't persuade its government to inspect Iranian cargo aircraft landing at its main airport. This entire Fox News report is fake news.

Sep 8, 2018 - More Lost Vietnam Battles

Two more added to my series: Lost Battles of the Vietnam War 

Operation Badger Tooth - The NVA spent a year covertly fortifying the village of Tham Khe. The day after Christmas 1967, the 3rd Battalion, 1st Marines landed by ship to sweep the area without armor support. The Marines were surprised by heavy enemy fire when they approached Tham Khe, yet kept attacking until the enemy fled, leaving 48 Marines dead and 88 wounded.

Assault on Hill 996 - On July 11th 1969, the 1st Battalion of the Army's 506th Infantry Regiment helicoptered in to take Hill 996. They found lots of fighting NVA who repelled their assault, then counterattacked, killing 20 GIs and wounding 26.

Sep 4, 2018 - Was Hillary Involved in Treason?

Our neocon run corporate media remains focused on ousting President Trump. The current plan is based on the truth that he paid off a sexpot bimbo who he banged years ago to keep quiet during the election. At the very worst, Trump failed to file IRS Form 1099 reporting that payment, and the bimbo should be charged with tax evasion. But this story is spun that Trump interfered with the election by paying off the bimbo, who leaked the story anyway.

Meanwhile, no one pays attention to former career CIA officer Kevin Shipp as he publicly blows the whistle about the biggest bribe in American history. No one disputes that hundreds of millions of foreign money was "donated" to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, and most of that money disappeared into offshore bank accounts. However, no one will report the details provided by Kevin Shipp!

Sep 2, 2018 - John McCain Will Not Be Missed

As a follow-up to my Aug 27th blog, I ask people to name McCain's most important accomplishment during his long political career. They can think of none, but the TV tells them McCain was great because he was a neocon. Senator Paul Laxalt saw more combat than McCain and had an equally long and distinguished career. He was not a crazed neocon so our media barely reported his death last month.

Here are two examples of McCain's bad character just this past year. McCain had always opposed Obamacare and campaigned against it. The Republicans had tried to repeal it for years. The election of President Trump also brought in more Republican congressmen. The House easily repealed it, and the Senate finally had a majority to vote for a partial repeal. This would be a big victory for the Republicans led by President Trump. When the vote was held, McCain shocked everyone and voted against it, thus abandoning his principles and backstabbing his party! This was applauded by the Democrats and the insurance companies who profit from Obamacare. They praised McCain as a "maverick", although everyone knows this was done just to thwart a Trump victory.

On his deathbed, McCain directed his staff not to invite his Presidential running mate Sarah Palin to his funeral. She campaigned for him as a loyal teammate and never said a bad word about McCain during the campaign or after their loss. McCain blamed her for his loss and expressed this in a childish manner. Allow me to summarize his life. John McCain was as selfish, spoiled brat who had no sense of decency. 

Sep 1, 2018 - Trigger Happy FBI Bro

My July 4, 2017 blog post was "Trigger Happy FBI Agent Caused Death." It explained why an FBI agent open fired on a man as he exited his truck with his hands raised. State troopers then open fired and killed the innocent man. Fake news claimed the man was reaching for his gun, but only the "Salt Lake Tribune" and a few other small newspapers reported the key facts that he was fired upon while his hands were raised and never brandished a weapon, which can be seen in the actual video. He did grab his chest after he was shot.

I was impressed that the Feds charged FBI agent Joseph Astarita with lying to investigators after he denied firing the shots, but I'm not surprised that he was found not guilty and that major media continues to print fake news that his victim was reaching for a gun. However, his trial revealed an disturbing cultural aspect of the FBI. Astarita was an agent for 13 years and a member of the FBI's elite Hostage Rescue Team, and missed when he tried to shoot this man. When asked by investigators to explain what happened, Agent Astarita replied: "You don't get to ask me that, bro, bro, you can't ask me that now. No, bro, we're good." 

Aug 27, 2018 - The Truth about John McCain

John McCain was a leading American neocon who always advocated war and ever greater military spending for a growing worldwide empire. This made him a successful politician and explains why our neocon corporate media praises him and refuses to reports facts about his life. By several accounts (“The Nightingale Song” for example) he only got into the Naval Academy for a free college degree because dad and grandfather were admirals, and should have been kicked out several times. He graduated near the bottom of his class and was a lousy pilot who got into trouble often and crashed two aircraft because of neglect. He was shot down on his first tour over Vietnam while bombing a civilian power plant, and getting captured is not heroic.

What happened in captivity is controversial, but upon returning from POW status he passed a physical and regained flight status as a pilot. Yet after he finished 20 years of service that allowed generous retirement pay, he obtained a 100% VA disability rating allowing him to collect some $40,000 a year tax free too! The LA Times mentioned this when McCain insisted he was fit to serve as President. For the past two decades, he hauled in over $240,000 a year from the Feds for military retirement, 100% VA disability, social security retirement, while working full-time in the US Senate. He was paid for being retired, disabled, and gainfully employed! This is textbook case of why our system needs reform to protect taxpayers from rich welfare kings like McCain.

McCain’s loyal wife was disabled in a serious auto accident while he was a POW. Soon after he returned, McCain dumped her for a wealthy woman 20 years younger. The Reagans were so angry they never spoke to him again. He then married his new babe before he officially got divorced, so there’s that bigamy thing. McCain used his wife's family money to run for Congress and quickly got into trouble with the Keating Five scandal. McCain got $112,000 in "campaign contributions" and an equal amount of luxury perks from one of our nation's leading fraudsters. In return, he helped change laws and threatened regulators to allow this multi-billion real estate scam to grow.

I don’t know why any Arizonian voted for this crazed man, especially since he was a big advocate for open borders. At a union meeting, he told workers illegals are needed because Americans are too lazy to work farm fields, even for $50 an hour. McCain never labored his entire life, always on the government dole earning ten times minimum wage worker pay, whose increase he opposed.

McCain grew up wealthy and enjoyed free government health care his entire life, yet thought it nothing workers deserve. While running for President and attacking programs for the poor, a reporter asked how many houses he owned. He was unsure, but thought maybe seven. But his worst damage was to oppose any attempt at world peace, often demanding that the USA bomb the neocon designated villain of the year, currently Iran. McCain was a key player in the senseless deaths of thousands of American GIs and a million foreigners over the past two decades. He will not be missed.

Aug 26, 2018 - Free College?

While I often applaud Jimmy Dore, he also promotes nutty ideas, like free college. That sounds nice, but means the bottom half of Americans who can't enroll due to low test scores would work and pay taxes, while the top half enjoys a free four-year ride in college to do whatever they please! If college were free, millions more aimless, upper middle class Americans would waste four years pursing hobbies to acquire dubious skills that our nation has far in excess, like degrees in: drama, paleontology, women's studies, anthropology, art history, ethnic studies, astronomy, library science, modern dance, and PE. Free college would also bolster our increasingly corrupt and costly university system that employs nearly a million clerks earning six-figures.

The federal government needs to guide higher education with incentives. It should fund education in select areas where our nation lags, like machine tool operators, windmill and solar repair, and perpetually neglected fields like nursing, computer repair, fiber-optic installers, high-power electrical maintainers, and special education. So my "free college" idea is not a four-year fun ride to pursue dreams that will not benefit society, but 2-4 year programs to produce skilled workers needed to fill gaps in our economy. 

The idea that everyone should attend college is nutty as well. Half of American teens struggle to graduate from high school and lack the motivation and basic intelligence to do more than semi-skilled labor. If given a chance with free college, most will just party and play video games for a few years at government expense, until expelled. I think Jimmy Dore would agree if he read these thoughts.

Aug 25, 2018 - Mass Censorship Underway

Watch Jimmy Dore explain the mass censorship of non-corporate media now underway as Facebook and Youtube delete thousands of sites for inappropriate political content. Meanwhile, he shows CNN's blatant lies about everything. Book seller (not publisher) Amazon now bans books too! I don't expect Youtube to tolerate Dore much longer. They already demonetize most of his videos.

Aug 20, 2018 - True Conspiracy Theories

Decades after a major event that made no sense, the truth is often revealed. This is never covered by the major media, but enough evidence is uncovered and published so that anyone can learn the truth. In recent years, two big "conspiracies" have been proven true.

TWA Flight 800 did not explode in mid-air because of an electrical short. It was accidentally hit by a US Navy anti-aircraft missile during a training exercise. An outstanding 2013 documentary: TWA Flight 800 appeared on Netflix, but was removed after just a few weeks. It featured two senior NTSB investigators of TWA 800 who declared the investigation was a cover-up by the Clinton administration, and waited until they retired to speak out. Several books have appeared that provide undeniable evidence, but our corporate media refuses to correct its lies.

The other "conspiracy" is that James Earl Ray did not assassinate Martin Luther King. This was proven in court after he died. The evidence is overwhelming, but our history books will not change. King was about to lead 500,000 Americans on a march to Washington DC where they planned to camp out until changes occurred. Several violent riots had occurred in other cities in recent months, and a half million marchers joined by a half million locals could overwhelm riot police and sack our nation's government. As a result, the Deep State killed King, and used its control of our media to blame Ray.

Aug 19, 2018 - Google is Tracking You

If you have an iPhone or Android phone, Google tracks and records everywhere you go. Google allows you to turn off location tracking, but that is only for certain apps. Other apps continue to track and record your movements. There are complex techniques said to erase your location history, but given Google's arrogance and ties to the CIA, it probably continues to track and record your movements forever.

Aug 13, 2018 - Antifa are Nazis

We are told that the violent "Antifa" movement is "a conglomeration of autonomous, self-styled anti-fascist militant groups in the United States." This is ironic because they employ fascist tactics against opponents, just like Nazi Brown Shirts once did. Nazi means National Socialists, their reforms were socialist, and they demonized Russians too! You never see Antifa hold antiwar protests, even though Nazi's loved attacking and invading other nations.

Ironically, nationalist groups in the USA are often labeled "Nazi" even though they are not socialists. Most had grandfathers who fought Nazis in World War II! When these groups hold pro-American rallies in the USA to oppose corporate efforts to open borders and restrict constitutional rights, they are often attacked by the Antifa thugs funded by billionaires. Corporate media then blames these Americans for instigating violence by holding peaceful rallies.

Aug 12, 2018 - Walk Away from Liberal Intolerance

Yahoo has a great short video by Brandon Straka explaining why he left the Democratic  Party. It has become a party of hate, violence, racism, and intolerance caused by misinformation fed by the corporate media! They refuse to respect opinions and debate issues, but scream at, threaten, and physically attack those who disagree. Democrats demand that people be fired, businesses closed down, speakers banned, websites banned, and white males demeaned because of political disagreements. 

The party has become pro-Empire and supports ever larger military spending while demonizing nations like Russia and Syria. These fake "leftists" attack anyone who supports the Green Party, calling them dupes who help Republicans. Their basic election strategy is to demonize Trump, yet offer no serious proposals to solve problems. As a result, the Democratic Party is quickly losing millions of its sane supporters.

Aug 11, 2018 - Washington Post Urges Coup

As more truth leaks out, the Deep State is worried. The Mueller witch hunt turned up little and Trump remains popular enough to win reelection. Their current strategy is to spend billions of dollars to elect lots more "intelligence" operatives to Congress as Democrats to take control of the House of Representatives and impeach Trump. Meanwhile, one of the Deep State's key propaganda outlets openly called for a coup to overthrow the President.

Aug 10, 2018 - It's All Coming Unraveled 

If you want great insight into the Clinton mafia, listen to this 20-min youtube audio from career CIA officer Dr. Michael Scheuer.

Aug 5, 2018 - Deep State Judges 

This blog routinely explains that open borders is the primary goal of the world's billionaires. In the USA, the first step is a third "DACA" amnesty to allow some ten million more law breakers to become legal, thus encouraging hundreds of millions more to dash across and await their legalization.

Donald Trump angered the Deep State by revoking their puppet Obama's illegal edict granting amnesty to millions of foreigners. Trump agreed with the federal judge who wrote that only Congress can enact laws. However, Trump openly said he'd agree to amnesty for DACA children if legislation also closed loopholes allowing millions of "refugees" and distant relatives of immigrants to flood the USA. This was loudly rejected by the Deep State's political party, where some Democrats demand abolishing ICE to allow open borders. As result, a corrupt Deep State federal judge just ruled that DACA amnesty is now law, because he says so!

This is madness as Africa suffers from a massive population explosion. Millions are flowing into Europe and Latin America where they are bussed northward to the great dumping ground known as the USA. Immigration is not a human right! Citizens have the right to decide who is allowed to enter their nation and immigration must be limited and legal, as clearly explained by the brilliant Hungarian Foreign Minister. The famous leftist union organizer Cesar Chavez agreed. Bernie Sanders agreed. The vast majority of Americans agree, which is why Republicans will retain control of Congress this November, so long as Trump keeps our borders intact.

Aug 4, 2018 - The Next Financial Crisis

Michael Hudson is the most interesting economics writer in the USA. He holds no punches when he exposes the massive corruption in the American financial system that has created a time bomb about to explode.

Aug 3, 2018 - White Monkey

A TV star must do something horrible to lose a top-rated show, unless she is a Trump supporter. Hollywood was looking for an excuse to oust Roseanne Barr. Her top-rated was show canceled for comparing former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett to a monkey. Barr defended herself by claiming that she thought Jarett was white. (pictured) I would have been fooled too.

Jul 25, 2018 - Lies About History

I've recommended the great book: "Lies My Teacher Taught Me." I found this interview with the author on youtube. 

I recently stumbled upon the fact that hundreds of ancient Rome coins were unearthed in the Americas at dozens of places over hundreds of years. Most were fakes or hoaxes, but there are several cases with enough evidence to consider it likely they were transported to the Americas prior to Columbus. Of course the guardians of history and archeology never accept changes to the official narrative, no matter the evidence. Most have authored books that would become outdated should official history change.

Jul 22, 2018 - The Deep State Surfaces

Google "Robert Mueller" to discover his career in the Deep State, to include obstructing 9-11 investigations. We are told he is a conservative Republican, so why did Democrat Bill Clinton's Attorney General Janet Reno appoint him as US Attorney for Northern California in 1998! These are powerful and important positions in the federal government that are given to allies! And why did powerful Democratic Senators applaud his appointment as special prosecutor? 

There are three major issues among American voters: 1) Healthcare is too expensive, more than three times higher than any other modern nation; 2) Foreign wars and conflicts are pointless and costly; 3) Mass immigration crowds the nation, reduces wages, and overwhelms local government services. You don't hear about these concerns on your corporate TV or in newspapers controlled by the Deep State, who also control the two major political parties and the federal bureaucracy. For unknown reasons, they do not control Tucker Carlson, as Jimmy Dore explained. Carlson is unlikely to last much longer if he persists telling the truth.

They don't control the current President, which is why Trump's trip to Helsinki to make peace with Russia was marred by two senseless indictments by his own Department of Justice! Even if they are valid, why couldn't they wait a few days until after the President returned? It is obvious the Justice Department is an arm of the Deep State and followed orders to disrupt the President's peace effort, even though they work for Trump as part of the executive branch!

No one knows why Trump does what he does. Is it complex political strategy? Is Trump poorly informed? Does he have mental problems? He is an enemy of the Deep State because he seems to oppose their objectives of world domination and open borders. I write "seems" because his rhetoric is not always matched with action. However, Trump's peace efforts with Russia have crossed the line with the Deep State. I agree with Paul Craig Roberts that if Trump persists, he will be replaced via a coup, especially since Trump is likely to win reelection because no other candidate will address the major issues that working Americans care about.

Jul 20, 2018 - Fraudulent Military Programs

Over the past couple of years, G2mil focused on exposing military programs based on bad science or crazy concepts. These appeared in the blog, but need a central link on the homepage. Here is that link:

Fraudulent Military Programs - ongoing scams

Jul 16, 2018 - Illegal Immigration Replaced Slave Labor

In past blog posts, I explained how illegal immigration is a form of slave labor. It seems powerful people explained this to former President George W. Bush, but didn't tell him not to repeat it in public and that Americans no longer pick cotton by hand. As a result, Bush said this during a speech earlier this year:

“There are people willing to do jobs that Americans won’t do. Americans don’t want to pick cotton at 105 degrees, but there are people who want put food on their family’s tables and are willing to do that. We ought to say thank you and welcome them.”

Bush failed to note that millionaire farm owners pay only $10 an hour with no benefits for these tough jobs, yet most field workers are US citizens or green card holders. Illegals are hired to hold down wages and deter unions and strikes. If they would pay $20 an hour, plenty of Americans would show up to work. Most Americans don't know that millions of white Americans once picked cotton by hand, and picked more than Blacks or Mexicans.

Jul 15, 2018 - Real Organized Crime

Corporate television teaches us that organized crime are local rackets run by Italians. In reality, the world's most powerful people routinely colluded to profit from illegal activities. For example, in 1967 Israel invaded and occupied Syria's Golan Heights. Most of the native people fled or were expelled and Israelis moved in. In 1981, Israel officially annexed the Golan Heights over the objection of the UN and USA, and no nation recognizes this land grab.

For the past several years, lots of oil has been stolen by Genie Oil from under the Golan Heights with no compensation or royalties paid to Syria. And remember that Israel had plans to seize another 25 miles (40km) of southern Syria as a security zone until Russia thwarted that idea. (see my Jan. 29, 2018 blog post) Have a peek at who is paid to overcome political objections and keep this news out of the UN and our corporate media:

Jul 9, 2018 - Please Don't Call an Ambulance!

As a follow up to previous blog posts about America's dysfunctional for-profit health care system, read: 

Badly Injured Woman Begs Passersby Not To Call An Ambulance, Due To Cost

Most ambulance rides in the USA are over $1000, some are twice that amount, and bills of over $8000 are not uncommon. At one time, some cities provided ambulance rides as a free public service, or hospitals provided them for free to boost business. I suspect more than 90% of Americans would agree that their state or federal government should limit ambulance bills to perhaps $500. If this makes companies unprofitable, the government would need a subsidy scheme. The biggest problem for ambulance companies are poor people without insurance, which is why they boost fees for paying customers. The government could pay their $500 if they submit a financial form claiming poverty.

Once the government must pay some of the cost, it will end waste, like when highly paid fire department paramedics show up at the scene to provide care, but don't transport to a hospital because an ambulance is called too. So the patient is double billed, which pleases the ambulance company and the paramedics who prefer to return to their fire station quickly to resume their movie. In many cases, people with minor problems in rural areas could be transported to a local urgent care facility, but are driven to a hospital ER over an hour away because of a wasteful policy that ambulances only transport to hospital ERs.

You don't get a bill when the fire department shows up for a fire, so why when they show up to save a life? In many cases, an ambulance is called because someone is mugged or hit by a car. Why should a victim get billed? In other cases, an ambulance is called for someone who has a minor injury or dizzy spell, but the ambulance employees insist that hospital care is required so they get paid for showing up. Governments can easily control the ambulance racket because they control 911 dispatches, so can negotiate prices and rules for ambulances they dispatch.

Jul 5, 2018 - Tyrant Assad?

Did you know the "evil" leader of Syria lived in London for several years where he studied to become an eye doctor? Did you know he speaks English? This information is allowed on American corporate media, nor on youtube. Thanks to the great Ron Unz, you can watch Syria's President Assad answer questions in English about the fighting in his nation and American politics.

Jul 4, 2018 - NBC Hires News Faker

In my last post, I mentioned the fake news that suddenly appeared to undermine President Trump's peace effort with North Korea. I now learn the sole source of this "news" is Ken Dilanian, the former national security reporter for the Los Angeles Times. He was fired for having a “collaborative relationship” with the CIA. Ken Dilanian was publicly fired from a major newspaper for inventing fake news in collaboration with the CIA, yet was hired by NBC News! Now NBC allows him to write national security articles citing unnamed intelligence sources! The worst part is that dozens of other corporate news organizations cite his NBC stories. If they insist on repeating fake news, they should print this disclaimer at the beginning of his articles:

Warning: This writer was fired by the Los Angeles Times for producing fake news in secret cooperation with the CIA.

Jul 2, 2018 - Peace Lover Trump?

It was nice to see Trump’s sudden return to sanity by holding talks with North Korea. I never understood why he accepted psychopaths like Bolton into his office. One could be cynical (or realistic) and realize that Zionists don’t give a damn about Korea, Iran is their target. Trump can secure peacenik creds and free up forces to focus on Iran. Others note that South Korea’s president walked crossed the DMZ to hug North Korea's leader, and probably told Trump that he can do this with or without him. The neocons realized they need to give peace a chance or get dropped from the game.

It’s a puzzle, but so far it's good news, especially since it showed that never-Trumpers prefer world war rather than congratulating Trump for peace. We didn’t give up anything. I’ve taken part in these war games. South Korean land and airspace is so crowded that war games there are unrealistic and stupid. Our military is better off practicing elsewhere. The Deep State is in shock and counterattacked. Trump's peace effort was widely denounced by their corporate media, and fake news has just appeared from "anonymous intelligence sources" that North Korea is suddenly increasing production of nuclear material. 

Hopefully, Trump will push ahead and learn that he can pull thousands of non-combat GIs out of South Korea to save a couple billion dollars a year and actually improve our combat readiness in Korea! Don't fall for lies that keeping troops in Korea saves the USA money because of contributions from South Korea. It costs a lot more money to maintain equipment and soldiers on the other side of the world, and to pay GIs thousands of dollars a month to live off base. South Korea does not pay any of these costs. Its contributions are paying land rent and base construction payments to South Koreans and bogus contributions like forgiving import fees, income taxes, and on-base sales taxes for American GIs. G2mil published these detailed proposals to cut military fat in Korea over the past few years:

Pull Aircraft and Airmen Out of Osan - now in a kill zone

Close Chinhae Tomorrow - it commands nothing

Cut Army Fat in Korea - 8th Army and Daegu 

Withdraw from DMZ Bases - as ordered

Jul 1, 2018 - Sell!

I once traded stocks. It was fun and I made some easy money, but the events of 2008 shook my faith in the system. It has become a casino run by computers, so great companies with solid profits can lose half their value in a few weeks. The collapse pattern starts when overhyped companies that never made a profit quickly lose value, as they should. As speculative investors see their balance sheet fall and need cash to meet margin calls, they sell their solid stocks to book profits so they don't have to sell and book losses from their speculative ones. Index funds are huge, so when investors sell shares all stocks get sold, even the healthy, profitable ones. Other funds and investors decide to reduce their holdings and begin to sell all stocks, and the downward momentum snowballs. 

Speculative stocks aren't just small corporations. For example, since it went public eight years ago, Tesla's share price has risen nearly 2000 percent and the company is still unprofitable! CEO Elon Musk said he expects Tesla to turn a profit in the third and fourth quarters of 2018. Tesla's stock market value is $56.7 billion, surpassing Ford's market value of $43.2 billion and General Motors' value of $55.5 billion. This is despite the fact that Ford and GM sell several times the number of cars Tesla does, and have consistently delivered profits over the last several quarters. This means that if Tesla helps crash the market, Ford and GMs stocks will fall too!

Most agree the current market is due a pullback. The S&P 500 value remains the same as the beginning of this year. This is the same pattern as 2008 and I've been looking for a sell signal, which should occur when bitcoin and it's related crypto scams unravel. These imaginary coins are quickly losing value and may soon become worthless, wiping out hundreds of billions of dollars in fantasy wealth. This is a sign of a pending downturn, and Tesla may report another unprofitable quarter in August. If I had stocks, I'd sell all and sit on cash the rest of this year.
