- The Warmongers and Military-Industrial Complex want us in another war. This time they want to send 5,000 troops to sit around to be targets in the Middle East snake pit waiting to be "attacked".
- Let's get real. Iran is not invading Saudi Arabia. The Persian Gulf has so many naval ships and aircraft in it that they need traffic controllers to keep them from running into each other.
- The Iranian "Navy", which basically does not exist, couldn't cross the Gulf without ramming into 20 ships of other world navies.
(Newsmax) - The U.S. Department of Defense is considering a U.S. military request to send about 5,000 additional troops to the Middle East amid increasing tensions with Iran, two U.S. officials told Reuters on Wednesday.
The officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the request had been made by U.S. Central Command, but added that it was not clear whether the Pentagon would approve the request.
The Pentagon regularly receives - and declines - requests for additional resources from U.S. combatant commands throughout the world.
One of the officials said the requested troops would be defensive in nature.
This appeared to be the latest request for additional resources in the face of what U.S. officials have said are credible threats from Iran against U.S. forces and American interests in the Middle East.
The Pentagon declined to comment on future plans.

Bringing The People's Republic of California To America
(Free Beacon) - Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris is proposing companies "pay" a hefty "price" for supposed wage disparities between men and women.
On Monday, Harris's campaign unveiled a proposal to eliminate the gender pay gap. Billed "as the most aggressive equal pay proposal in history," Harris's plan would require companies to apply for "equal pay certification" through the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). To receive certification, companies with more than 100 employees would be required to disclose compensation data showing no existing wage disparities between men and women for "work of equal value."
"To the extent pay disparities do exist for similar jobs, companies will be required to show the gap is based on merit, performance, or seniority–not gender," Harris's proposal reads. By forcing companies to disclose their pay and employment data, Harris's plan would change current EEOC guidelines which require employees to come forward and report wage disparities.
"We've let corporations hide their wage gaps, but forced women to stand up in court just to get the pay they've earned," the California Democrat's campaign told the Associated Press. "It's time to flip the script and finally hold corporations accountable for pay inequality in America."
Companies failing the certification process would face a 1 percent fine on their total profit for every 1 percent wage gap allowed "to persist for work of equal value. Fines would be levied "for every day" companies "discriminate against their workers."
If elected, Harris—who has failed to pass a single piece of legislation since joining the Senate in 2017—is pledging to implement portions of the plan via "executive action," rather than waiting "for Congress to act."
"Kamala Harris has a simple message for corporations: Pay women fairly or pay the price," the campaign said on Monday. The "price" would generate "roughly $180 billion" in the first decade of implementation, with "revenue decreasing over time as strong equal pay practices become part of corporate culture." The campaign, however, did not include data to back up its revenue claims.FreeBeacon . . . .

America - A Nation of Pussies
Modern Americans are frightened to death
to defend their own borders.
- I don't give a fuck about Germany. President Trump needs to withdraw the 33,000 American troops in Germany and deploy them on the Mexican border to repel invasion.
“Santa Rosa fits the DHS statistics perfectly,” says a May 17 report from Sara Carter. Under the headline “Guatemalan Ghost Towns,” Carter wrote:
After a nearly two-hour ride up a windy mountain road from the capital the sound of salsa music greeted our SUV as it pulled along side one of the main roads. The music wafted from a small make-shift cafe that was empty of both customers and workers.
No cars. Few people. Two dogs. It was for the most part a ghost town.…“I can say roughly 60 percent of this town is gone,” said Jose Manuel, who had spent his day sitting along side the curb in front of furniture repair shop.
Many more migrants are preparing to travel through Mexico to accept the Democrats’ invitation of legal loopholes in the border fence. A recent survey by U.S. and Guatemalans shows that roughly one million Guatemalans — plus many of their children — want to make the trip soon.
“Entire communities are losing their children — and their future — to migration,” said a report from the non-profit Pulitzer Center. The report delicately dances around the reality that progressive Democrats and judges offer the catch-and-release loopholes to the migrants who bring their children. So many migrants bring their children and working-age youths on the dangerous trip to the border:
HUHUETENANGO, Guatemala — Amidst the chaos of third-graders getting ready for recess, a small empty desk stands out. The child who used to sit there is gone, having left for the United States with his father.In another classroom, four girls work together to fix their costume for the school’s carnival. The rest of their ninth-grade class has dropped out — some to go to the U.S., others because their families couldn’t afford school any longer.In a neighboring town, a teacher gardens to empower young women after the village’s only secondary program closed due to a lack of students.…some of these villages are losing their future as the younger generation heads north. Many of those who stay behind face a heavier workload — they need to care for younger siblings and tend house while their mothers work in the fields or fetch wood, tasks that typically belonged to their husbands.

Stuck on an island - What to bring?
I have had too much time on my hands lately so my mind wandered on what to bring to a tropical desert island when civilization collapses.
Naturally having Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton along would help fill the many hours of boredom.
A fully stocked bar, a BBQ and a stockpile of ribs works too.
But I am a slave to movies. So a TV, a few solar panels and a case of 10 DVDs would round out the exile in paradise.
This is NOT a top 10 movies of all time list. Fuck that. They can keep their Citizen Kane and Gone with the Wind crap.
This would be my list of 10 favorite films that I would have no problem watching over and over - - - basically because I have already watched them to death and still can't wait to watch them again.
The Maltese Falcon (1941)
Most people select Casablanca as Bogart's best movie and perhaps the best film of all time. Not me. The Falcon beats them both.
Fight Club (1999)
"You have to consider the possibility that God does not like you, never wanted you, in all probability he hates you. It's not the worst thing that could happen."
This film is most appropriate for a desert island as it addresses the base instincts of man and the fall of civilization.
Fight Club gets a 10 out of 10 on my weird-shit-meter. Seeing it for the first time blew me away. Insanity.
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)
The supreme Clint Eastwood movie. Then there is Tuco Ramírez masterfully played by Eli Wallach.
I have seen this movie countless times on TV, disc and in revival theaters. It never gets old.
The Walking Dead - Season One (2010)
Having re-watched season one recently brings back the memories of Dead-mania. The acting and plots are off the charts.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
Captain America alongside Scarlett Johansson. That is reason alone to watch the movie. The film is a near perfect blend of the superhero genre with a huge dose of Big Brother 1984 out to kill millions who dare question the all-powerful State.
Unlike Avengers Endgame the Winter Soldier was an outstanding movie without piling on 4 dozen characters from multiple films.
The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
"It puts the lotion on it's skin, or else it gets the hose again."
Jame "Buffalo Bill" Gumb
In the Olden Days I was in the front row on opening night for so many of our great movies.
To be in that pitch dark theater with Dr. Hannibal Lecter's face filling the screen was like nothing I have experienced before or since.
Yes I have seen this thing a million times since childhood. But I just can't help myself. It is the classic that started it all. My recent review and re-reading of the book impressed upon me all the more the power of the story.
The creepy atmosphere and black and white filming of the 1931 version cannot be beat. And we cannot forget the great Dwight Frye as Renfield. He nearly steals the film. If you could combine this and the 1992 Francis Ford Coppola version your would have the perfect Dracula movie.
I was blown away when I saw this in the theater. My God, it is the perfect horror comedy. Oddly it is funnier than Hell, scary and politically correct at the same time. In an unusual move for the time, we have multiple racial groups available for munching by the graboids.
Also, a double thumbs up to Val and Earl, the two best handymen ever.
Rio Conchos (1964)
Among the first of the realistic, bloody and ultra-violent Westerns. A multi-racial cast starring Richard Boone, Stuart Whitman, Anthony Franciosa, Edmond O'Brien, and in his motion picture debut, Jim Brown.
The movie graphically depicts racism in an age where the Western hero was "pure" and wore a white hat.
The Matrix (1999)
Neo discovers the truth - - - and all Hell breaks loose from there. The film has since appeared in lists of the greatest science fiction films ever made.
|In the olden days U.S. money was real (not digital) and backed by gold.|
Think - Don't Knee-Jerk
- The multi-national corporations who control what passes for "news" want to drive Americans into Left-Right camps for ratings and profit.
- In this case the "Leftists" in San Francisco are standing against the banking cartels and in favor of our right to use cash.
Is a ban on facial recognition and a return to cash showing backlash against Big Tech coming from its home turf?

Even though the empire died long ago, this 1,600 year
old gold coin still holds its value today.

Starting The Week off on a High Note
- I have decided to try and start each new week off on a positive high note. But being a glass half empty kind of guy I suspect things will turn into crap soon enough.
