This is great TV:

I still look at the attack and say, you know, either Assad must be the dumbest dictator on the planet — or maybe he didn’t do it. I have yet to see evidence that he did do it,”

“The only thing that would galvanize the world to attack Assad directly is a chemical attack. It killed relatively few people compared to what can be killed with traditional bombs… and so you wonder really what logic would there be for Assad to be using chemical weapons,”

We have a feeling this bombing is going to turn into a major scandal as it becomes clear what is intuitively obvious – it was a false flag, and this time they’re going to get caught on it.

R3publicans:  PUTIN JUST EXPOSED THE PLOT TO DESTROY AMERICA

Trump is attempting to break the “Shadow Government’s” strangle hold on the United States and the world. The “Deep State” here in the US is being controlled by this New World Order Shadow Government and has relentlessly pulled us to a One World Government controlled by the big banks, the ruling elite, and multinational corporations. From a casual observer in the US Russia’s Putin appears to be a huge enemy. But on the contrary, I believe Trump has an unexpected ally in Vladimir Putin in that both are wanting to rid the world of the New World Order. The conflicts we are having are in reality efforts to purge the Shadow Government from the area they control. Here is the SGT Report explaining some of this in video form.

R3publicans:  Bitter lessons 25 years after Waco Texas siege

Twenty-five years ago today, FBI tanks smashed into the ramshackle home of the Branch Davidians outside Waco, Texas.
