Lifetime achievement: "Against Chelsea Clinton" (Bruenig) and a comment by craazyboy at Naked Capitalism.
"Trump’s Syria Strategy is in Place Now". The 'new' strategy is, predictably, Yinon.
"A New Strategy Against ISIS and al Qaeda". Latest emergency Jewish orders to the stupid American goyim. As with the Iraqi War For The Jews, the Syrian War For The Jews just ended up increasing Iranian influence. Yinonization is still required to take place through the creation of Sunnistan, but a Sunnistan not centered on Raqqa, but rather in the southeastern corner, serving as a staging ground for attacks on Iranian/Hezbollah troops in Syria, and presumably any Shi'ites in Iraq.

". . . it needs to be underscored that the only reason why the US’ proxies are ahead in the Race for Raqqa is because the SAA is held back defending the liberated territories from the “Takfiri Tet Offensive”, which the US timed to occur precisely at the onset of the Kurds’ decisive trans-Euphrates operation against Tabqa and on the route to Raqqa’s southern banks."

"Trump’s War on Terror Has Quickly Become as Barbaric and Savage as He Promised" (Greenwald). "Trump Takes Off Gloves, Punches Civilians":
"The eventual defeat of IS and al-Qaeda requires not simply beating them on a battlefield or driving them out of a city. It requires undermining and discrediting their ideology. These groups, and their eventual successors, can survive indefinitely if the United States and its allies take actions that fuel Muslim resentment toward the West. In any war, some civilian casualties are unfortunately inevitable. But if the Trump administration has truly decided to “take the gloves off” in the war on terror, then it may find that it’s punching the wrong people."The ultimate goal of the deterioration of the Democratic Party: "Kochs Bankroll Move To Rewrite The Constitution":
"A constitutional convention, something thought impossible not long ago, is looking increasingly likely. Under Article V of the U.S. Constitution, if 34 state legislatures “issue a call” for a constitutional convention, Congress must convene one. By some counts, the right-wing only needs six more states. Once called, delegates can propose and vote on changes and new amendments to the U.S. Constitution, which, if approved, are currently required to be ratified by 38 states.
There are two major legislative pushes for a convention at the state level. One would attempt to engineer a convention for a balanced budget amendment only, and the other tries to secure an open convention for the purpose of limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government. But once a convention is underway, all bets are off. The convention can write its own rules, resulting in a wide-open or “runaway” convention that can make major changes to the constitution and even change the number of states required to ratify those changes.
If America gets saddled with a runaway convention, the Koch coterie of funders will be to blame. Most of the groups pushing the convention idea are being underwritten by one or more institutions tied to billionaire industrialists Charles and David Koch.""Former Obama Aide Who Helped Kill Single-Payer in the ACA Solicits Donations for Sick Friend's GoFundMe Page".
