Regarding Turkey's energy company Genel, mentioned in article below, as well as matters related, I link just below it to a few EARLIER posts I did from 2009.
However, IF one simply looks around this website, some interesting information to be gleaned.
Once again, warning.
These are SIGNIFICANT PIECES of a much larger, sordid, shifting, like Mideast sands, jigsaw puzzle canvas, but, for sure, not the entire ECONOMIC story or desert:
And, then, as promised above, a few selected from 2009.
Follow backwards MY embedded posts, links:
MORE POSTS, BUT, ABOVE TO SUFFICE.
Friday, August 19, 2016
And, of course, a recent retrospective post about Erdogan from 2009:
In view of updated events, aside from 2 links above, rather than select dozens or more entries from out of hundreds, thousands, earlier ones, I recommend simply do a SEARCH on THIS/MY blog typing in the year "2007."
I tried it myself to see what happens.
It is a good beginning from which to peruse further and follow backwards, forwards, sideways, tangentially, embedded links, if one wishes.
It certainly helps to have some background, a road map, from which to follow what now has grown to become a very internecine, convoluted, gargantuan, tangled MESS!
"Oh what a tangled web we weave when we practise to deceive!"
Names and people with competing, conflicting, financial interests multiply, proliferate, exponentially.
One up, in, the other down, out??
Who fights whom over which, what, whose, financial gain or loss, as the case may be??
Remember the ANCIENT adage:
"Two (in this case, 3, 4, 5, etc.) wrongs do not a right make or equal."
One wrong multiplied exponentially leads to exponential wrongs.
This math geometry has real life territorial, geographic, dimensions, implications.
But, hey, folks, this is LIBERATION, FREE MARKETS, DEMOCRACY AT WORK, ETC.

It's NO secret EVERY candidate in greatest nation of dis-United Suckers and Assholes NAZI s-election process has investments, financial connections, economic interests, with UKRAINE, RUSSIA, not to mention most everywhere else on Planet Earth now that the Evil USSR and CHINA Empires have been liberated from their horrible Dictatorship.
I did not want to bother with that stuff BECAUSE it seems so obvious to me.
But, a few links below for idiots.
Like I say, who gets what.
Winners and losers.
So, I chose RANDOMLY one from amongst many links available regarding Biden's son, et.al., and HIS/THEIR Ukraine investments:
Then, about Trump's campaign, again, RANDOM out of many possible links:
Meanwhile, altho Carl Icahn does not necessarily represent a household name to everyone, the following rather frank interview with him nicely demonstrates HOW our FREE MARKET system operates with competing capital interests, winners and losers, and, THOSE COLLECTIVELY making investment, economic, decisions for ALL of us BECAUSE THEY OWN everything:
Meanwhile, other regional developments occur simultaneously, like, for example, a sickening 12 billion dollar IMF loan to EGYPT with, most certainly, strings attached beyond OBVIOUS privatization, maybe, possible military role??
And, of course, NAZI ISLAMIC TURKISH AKP, "whose passion is to sell state enterprises," ERDOGAN's self-appointed DICTATORSHIP, convenient coup, AND, SUDDEN CHANGE OF HEART REGARDING ISLAM AND GULEN!!
According to Erdogan, I BELIEVE, if I read English language reports correctly, he had an epiphany of some sort, waved his hand, and, declared Turkey a secular nation.
Or, something like that.
Well, Islamic dominoes fall after MB collapse.
Of course, Islamic Republic of IRAN remains standing.
Once again, I ask, WHY IS NOT IRANIAN TERRITORY TARGETED, ALSO?
WHY DESTRUCTION AND DISLOCATION OCCURS ON ARAB TERRITORY ONLY??
WHY ARE THERE NOT MILLIONS OF IRANIAN REFUGEES POURING OUT INTO NEIGHBORING COUNTRIES, EUROPE, ETC.??
Correspondingly, where is the outrage and ANSWER over THIS latest event, ESCALATION, below?
Monday, August 15, 2016
I force myself to listen to this drivel.
It gets worse and worse and the worse or best is yet coming with so-called FASCIST election debates.
NO point in beating a dead horse.
History, truth, being irrelevant, dead.
See MOST of my earlier posts.
The stupid people, as Trump calls them, of the US deserve precisely what presently they have and continue to get in perhaps somewhat revised shape.
What happens to them being their problem ALONE, including, most importantly, our disgusting labor unions, AFL-CIA/SEIU, assorted front groups, covert ops, extras, ALL of whom contributed to make this nightmare movie extravaganza reality.
For everyone else around the globe, SHOW HIM/THEM TO WHOM BELONGS MIDEAST, and/or, for that matter, anywhere else on the globe, OIL, NATIONAL ASSETS.
One country you can leave out being HERE, because, in the infamous words of Born Again oxymoron Democratic Socialist Shill Bernie Sanders, "we don't do that HERE," and you better not do that THERE or we are coming to get you!!
As I say in my post just below, IF one HERE manages to find someplace else on the globe to go, run, hide, hibernate, exist, my advice, do so immediately:

Anyone watching can forget about US s-election.
Game OVER, FINISHED.
It makes NO difference WHICH SCHMUCK wins.
Of course, one will, with lots of chicanery and dirty tricks involved.
ALL STAND UP OR DOWN TOGETHER in a NAZI MANUFACTURED GUTTER, cesspool, of their own making.
Trump represents SNAKE OIL, JUST like ALL others combined.
I can use an earlier list, i.e., "What We Will and Will Not Get," IN ENTRY JUST BELOW with Trump and revise it ever so slightly upwards, downwards, depending on which angle one looks at it, which I may do.
For EXAMPLE, I do NOT SPECIFICALLY name in it LUXURY REAL ESTATE SPECULATION, DEVELOPMENT, ASSET BUBBLES, CONDOS, HOMES, RENTALS, "gentrification," or, "putrification," NOW happening in many/most URBAN AREAS, thanks to QE, STIMULUS, free Federal monies combined with LOCAL TAX ABATEMENT FOR DEVELOPERS, displacing the very people ALL say they are trying to help, i.e., working class, low and/or no income, residents, often minorities, meanwhile hiking taxes for EVERYONE ELSE to SUBSIDIZE this process.
Of course, this ALREADY happened since the end of WWII in NYC over many years with one million or so FORMERLY rent controlled apartments essentially gone and people like Trump benefiting from these regressive processes, representing but a small tip of an economic iceberg of historical reality.
For those who believe it matters, especially our NAZI FOREIGN PUPPETS, unless the US s-election is stolen, which happens quite often, or, some sort of unanticipated October Surprise occurs, Trump most likely to be winner, viewed as OPPOSITION, PROTEST VOTE AGAINST, NOT necessarily, FOR anything.
Remember, we have a twin NAZI PARTY DICTATORSHIP, NO proportional representation.
Third parties irrelevant.
Electoral politics irrelevant here, anyway, since OWNERSHIP does NOT change, except for the worse each and every time.
OUR FASCIST PARTNERED UNION POLICIES REPRESENTING THE REASON NO OPPOSITION EXISTS!
Ignore the media--the more they rail against Trump, the more people view him as underdog--only HELPING, ironically!
These are desperate people and desperate times.
PROBLEMS are REAL ones, NOT to go away, evaporate into thin air.
We will take down with us the rest of the planet BECAUSE OUR ECONOMIC SYSTEM IS DEAD, comatose, on life support, with everyone pretending it's not.
Trump, Clinton, flip sides of the same coin.
Trump simply represents a different version, attempt, to salvage the situation.
NEITHER to work.
These problems are SYSTEMIC, ENDEMIC, CYCLICAL, and, at this historical point, PANDEMIC ones.
Each and every solution THEY present DIGS ALL DEEPER INTO QUICKSAND, a MORASS, CREATING NEW, MORE DIFFICULT, INTRACTABLE, PROBLEMS, CONTRADICTIONS, SPIRALING UPWARDS and ONWARDS Christian Soldiers!
If you manage to find SOMEPLACE on the GLOBE to hide, do it.
Go, leave, hibernate.
Very difficult to do these days.
No place spared.
Even remote islands threatened by submersion under rising sea levels, gargantuan storms, temperature change, polluted water, disappearing species, etc.
NO future exists for this country and the rest of the world, at the moment.
That's the reality.
Since mentioning it the other day, I will save myself and you trouble and simply refer, again, to posts in another website, since she expresses it eloquently.
I run out of desriptive words, or, just despair, disgust.
How many ways can one say that??
Maybe it helps having 2 or more languages.
More words available, or, different mindsets.
So, go to her latest entry,
"A Deep Malaise" and, anything else you find there:
Additionally, I label below what I call Weapons of Mass Extinction, beginning of a prolonged
struggle thanks to ALL combined together to EXPAND our INSANE, LUNATIC, BARBARIC, ATAVISTIC, PROFIT DRIVEN, COMPETITIVE, ECONOMIC SYSTEM of PRIVATE OWNERSHIP, LAISSEZ FAIRE economics, and, A NON-EXISTENT, COLLABORATIVE, GLOBAL OPPOSITION HERE AND ABROAD.
Comparable domestic weather developments, epic floods, heat, but, I highlight one abroad:
Finally, in latest chapter of a rhetorical question I repetitively ask, how come our formerly anti-Soviet freedom fighters, now become terrorists, especially like one SEATED SO OBVIOUSLY behind Hillary at a rally, NEVER target strategic interests HERE, such as those below??
But, not to worry.
The US returning BIG TIME to a greater MIDEAST boiling cauldron, another sinking morass of their OWN making, including NAZI OCCUPIED IRAN in IRAQ.
Despite claims to the contrary by Trump we/they/he to win NOTHING, nothing at all, but, more BIG PROBLEMS, troubles, explosions, headaches, and, Trump's legacy, IF elected, to be completely opposite, different, from that which he, too, believes.
It's part of their job description, or, existentially speaking, "being determines consciousness."
What else can one expect them/him to say??
What I say??
If so, then, you too are delusional, sort of a refracted mirror image, distorted reflection, in a Fun House of Illusion:
Wednesday, August 10, 2016
First Trump, then, some illustrious information ADDED to my earlier post JUST BELOW regarding Erdogan's aborted coup, putsch, and, his own investments, plus, of course, Citigroup, Koc, Akbank, Iran's Parsian, etc., about whom I also had MANY earlier posts.
Since Trump became OFFICIALLY ANNOINTED and captured by PROFESSIONAL CAREER POLITICIANS, in this case, Republic-rat Party AND THEIR SPECIAL PRIVATE INTERESTS, and, since he had some sort of unknown discussion with leading RECIDIVIST CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY and architect of war, death, destruction, torture, Kissinger, Trump went steadily downhill, a PATTERN CLEARLY to be continued.
His VP choice, Pence, is beyond nauseating, repulsive, sickening.
It is NOT any better, of course, on the Democ-rat side of our twin NAZI Party Establishment DICTATORSHIP coin.
Like I say in previous posts, DIFFERENT, BUT, NOT BETTER NOR WORSE.
More of same.
A Hobson's choice.
Change places and rotate.
Anyway, Trump made an economic policy speech the other day SCRIPTED by or for him by his NEW found economic advisors, like the following list:
It STINKS TO HIGH HEAVEN.
He did MUCH better WITHOUT all named above.
But, he now finds himself immersed in Party Politics and thus descends to the lowest common denominator possible, pacifying multiple SYSTEMIC interests all at once.
I will link to speech below, but, before doing so, a few other comments.
Trump SHOULD have picked SARAH PALIN as VP, because, actually, SHE IS MUCH BETTER THAN HE, PENCE, and, ALL OTHERS COMBINED.
What do I mean?
Well, in earlier posts about Palin I claimed her ONLY problem as former Governor in ALASKA was a negotiating position vis-a-vis, in particular, EXXON, partnered, I BELIEVE, at the time, with BP, IF I recall correctly, regarding a Transcanada energy (oil/gas) pipeline.
(Have to go back to look up details regarding THOSE PIPELINE negotiations.)
But, SHE HAD THIS WONDERFULLY NAIVE CONCEPT, much closer to a GOOD, BETTER, OR, CORRECT ONE, including Trump, namely, SHE, as Governor, was CEO representing an entire STATE OF ALASKA, residents of which, by definition, HER CONSTITUENT SHAREHOLDERS.
Thus, she felt she needed to negotiate a BETTER, BEST, GOOD, DEAL FOR THEM, HER STATE AS A WHOLE against PRIVATE interests like Exxon.
And, SHE had the audacity and temerity to ACT UPON IT!
She was NOT corrupt, NOT on the take, which is why she won in Alaska against ALL odds and other ESTABLISHMENT politicians combined, all of whom DID engage in above policies with VESTED interests.
CONCEPTUALLY and FACTUALLY she is/was alot better than all others, including Trump, because she had NO SLEAZY real estate empire supporting HER campaign and/or equally horrific financial advisors.
Of course, she did NOT endorse the N word, outright NATIONALIZATION,
That was a stretch she could and would not make.
That's beyond her Gestalt, her pay grade.
But, she did the next best thing, systemically.
Now, I DO credit Trump, as I say repeatedly, for opening a door, highlighting issues which NEVER, OTHERWISE, WOULD HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT OF DAY.
That was before a diluvian flood of professional politics.
NOW HE BACKTRACKS onto BLATANTLY, PATENTLY, OBSCENE PROPOSALS TO SATISFY SYSTEMIC PROPERTY INTERESTS.
PROBLEMS he identifies and statistics he uses are ABSOLUTELY CORRECT being much worse than what he says in many ways, because, for example, HE DOES NOT DISCUSS LUXURY REAL ESTATE SPECULATION and its DISASTROUS CONSEQUENCES FOR THE WORKING CLASS IN URBAN AREAS, thanks to QE, STIMULUS, TAX ABATEMENTS, which BOTH parties are more than happy to sponsor.
Perhaps, people may have forgotten WHICH ASSET BUBBLE COLLAPSED IN 2008!
Or, as the saying goes, urban renewal means urban removal, a process referred to sometimes as gentrification.
But, unfortunately, altho problems correct, reasons and solutions NOT.
And, as comparison, I have below Trump's speech a link from one of my earlier posts.
Compare and contrast them.
But, before both links, I offer Trump a different kind of deal operating WITHIN his own conceptual, structural, framework, which, of course, eliminates outright nationalization, off the table, not for discussion, verboten.
Not only by him, but, EVERY SUCKER AND ASSHOLE HERE, including, most significantly, our INSTITUTIONAL INVESTORS, AFL-CIA/SEIU.
So, let's begin with gas, THAT being A major aspect of it, more so than oil or coal, since LNG EXPORT exists as an UNSTATED GOAL.
Gas (oil/coal) underneath the ground can NOT be owned by ANY INDIVIDUAL OR PRIVATE ENTITY.
Nobody MADE it.
NO VALUE ADDED.
NATURE produced it, gratis.
So, it belongs in a category, like WATER, (and land) to NO ONE person, individual, PRIVATE ENTITY, corporation, altho, I am well aware ATTEMPTS constantly are being made to PRIVATIZE WATER, AS WELL.
Thus, IF Trump, private interests, want to EXPORT gas/energy, then, let's make a deal.
ALL DOMESTIC ENERGY BEING FREE or nominal costs because ABOVE applies.
ONLY labor and cost of a domestic delivery system and maintenance added, which, in most/many cases, exists already.
Those are simply daily or continued operating expenses, but, NO PROFIT involved.
PRIVATE INTERESTS WHO WANT TO EXPORT GAS, ENERGY, THE UNSTATED GOAL HERE, MUST PAY for developing, maintaining, constructing, an ENTIRE DELIVERY SYSTEM THEMSELVES from start to finish, NO TAXPAYER MONIES USED.
They can then KEEP ALL, WHATEVER, PROFITS THEY EARN FROM EXPORT ONLY.
But, domestic purposes come first, primary, at NO or LOW cost to cover operating expenses ONLY!
Additionally, PRIVATE DEVELOPERS FOR EXPORT MUST pay a fee for USING what is COMMON PROPERTY!
So, IF, with all that combined, they STILL want to export and find profitability, then, go ahead.
Be my guest.
But, NO TAXPAYER, STATE, SUBSIDIES, OF ANY KIND, EITHER.
They pay for EVERYTHING.
And, NO military HELPING them open, keep, create, market share, compete with, exploit, others, asset strip, etc.
SO, LET'S MAKE A DEAL, eh??
What say you Trump??:
Additionally, there should be NO contingency between TARIFFS and ANY FORM OF TAX GIVEAWAYS, BOONDOGGLES, ABATEMENTS to PRIVATE CORPORATIONS either here and/or abroad.
No reason to link together these two items.
End of sentence.
And build a NATIONALLY OWNED domestic manufacturing, energy, structure right HERE!
Good riddance to industries that left!
Anyway, that's just a few highlights including those from previous posts, below.
Just what is it ALL are TRYING SO DESPERATELY to avoid??
ANOTHER ROUND OF ECONOMIC IMPLOSION added to a long laundry list of SYSTEMIC, cyclical, boom and bust episodes.
The only idiots who do NOT understand this are the VERY SUCKERS to whom they all address themselves.
Indeed, Trump is correct when he calls this a STUPID NATION, but, not for reasons HE says:
At this point, I find it almost impossible to listen to HIM OR ANY of them.
Hillary, of course, represents a walking corporation.
So, this is Trump's speech, most likely to be the last one to which I will expose myself since it is drivel.
More voodoo, zombie, economics superimposed on a putrifying body.
Ignore planted protestors--they are irrelevant.
Then, MY earlier post:
Then, for more about Turkey, added on to my earlier post, just below this one.
First link enjoyable, entertaining:
Monday, August 8, 2016
I have thousands of entries, so, it is impossible for me to instantaneously RECOLLECT ALL information posted over such an extensive period of time.
But, as a sample test, I did ONE very simple search regarding Turkey and ERDOGAN's NAME and came up with, at minimum, one good link from 2009 with DETAILS, see below.
Obviously, this reflects SHIFTING MIDEAST SANDS, so, what existed then need be updated.
Nonetheless, it certainly does give one a MUCH BETTER idea of CAUSE AND EFFECT then a multitude of disparate junk, garbage, SPECULATION, disinformation, propaganda, nonsense, propagated by lazy sloths feigning journalism ON LINE.
As usual, SOME embedded ELECTRONIC links in post below NO longer work, but, others do.
I LEARNED from past EXPERIENCE to EXTRACT as much as possible PERTINENT INFORMATION from electronic links and paste it into my posts as a sort of insurance policy against "missing links":
Sunday, August 7, 2016
First, I am both happy AND sad an ELOQUENT blogger returned, see LINK BELOW, from whatever wilderness she inhabits.
Happy she exists, alive, and, kicking.
Sad over the circumstances, including those mentioned in her other, Uncensored, entry, which, IF not reduced, controlled, changed, will leave her UNALIVE AND NOT KICKING SOON ENOUGH!
I fully appreciate her circumstances, but, can do nothing about it.
So, please, go to:
AND, Uncensored blog entry at same website.
Now, as for PATHETIC USA, NAZI OCCUPIED EMPIRE OF CRIME, I use that phrase simply juxtaposing ANYTHING HERE remotely resembling GREAT, past, present, future.
LINK BELOW being an INITIAL post regarding Trump.
Am I prescient or is it SIMPLE, fundamental, basic, economics??
Elementary, My Dear Watson!
TRUTH and CONSEQUENCES!
After link, some qualifying comments.
Then, PLEASE, ignore ANYTHING PROPAGATED on OUR DESPICABLE, CRAPPY, COMMERCIAL, CHEERLEADING, MEDIA.
I make some suggestions for Trump OR any others regarding "illegal" immigrants, refugees, other than the well KNOWN COVERT OPERATIVES, CIA AGENTS, FRONT GROUPS, created by our numerous flavored Freedom Fighters abroad.
PLACE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IN THE US ARMY, like the French Foreign Legion.
That would solve multiple problems all at once.
Happy or Unhappy Wounded Warriors for IMPERIALISM, PRIVATE CAPITAL EXPANSION, and/or, dead bodies, returning present less of a political problem when landing back on home shores.
Notice, of course, NO illegal labor EMPLOYERS to be arrested, prosecuted, obviously.
How about rounding up THEM!!??
As for refugees in Europe, GIVE THEM GUNS, TRAINING, SUPPORT, AND, RETURN THEM TO THEIR HOMELANDS TO TAKE BACK WHAT WAS SEIZED in the first place FROM THEM!
LET THEM SEIZE THEIR OWN OIL, AS TRUMP SAYS!
Trump's great wall of Mexico proposition totally irrelevant, useless, except to create employment utilizing, of course, PRIVATE CONTRACTORS and subcontractors.
Creative, imaginative, ways exist to circumvent any proposed barrier, GREAT WALL OF MEXICO, like, tunnels, water, air.
LOTS of WATER, sea, rivers, lakes, inland channels here.
Or, they can come thru or stay in, God Forbid, CANADA!
Our Canadian border being VAST, empty space, wilderness, with few, if any, good defense.
It's virtually wide open, along with much/most of the coastline.
Drugs come on air and water, as well.
So, just toss in some people.
As for illicit drugs entering our country, well, that problem easily contained IF HE CONTROLS, eliminates, our CIA/NSA and BANK money laundering, PROFITEERING, international drug cartel, network about which I have had MANY posts.
Drug monies ALSO help finance SURROGATE militias.
I also warned everyone now that Trump attached himself officially to a DUAL, CRIMINAL, sleazy, MAFIA, vermin infested, NAZI POLITICAL PARTY SYSTEM, mud slinging to begin.
So, FOR that reason, ONLY, once again, I link to a Trump rally, below.
But, before watching, listening, DO A THOUGHT EXPERIMENT.
Suppose we/I proposed to Trump he ADD ON TO HIS PROGRAM A NATIONAL SINGLE PAYER HEALTH CARE SYSTEM, I.E., EXPANDED MEDICARE FOR ALL.
We could discuss education, and other items, also, but making it simple, start with above.
One would presume he would get ALL, if not MOST, of Sanders supporters, would you not??
But, I WOULD TAKE BETS THAT WILL/WOULD NOT HAPPEN BECAUSE THEY, TOO, ARE FAKE, and/or Stupid, LIKE OUR UNIONS, our media, our Opposition, our ENEMIES, and just about everything else.
Next, a theme I discuss many times.
GOVERNMENT income emanates almost entirely from a TAX based system on PRIVATE business, and, the WORKING CLASS, ITSELF, from THEIR income, EMPLOYMENT, wages, salaries, consumption, real estate, dividends, inheritance, etc.
Our NAZI PARTNERED, CRIMINAL, LABOR UNIONS, AFL-CIA/SEIU, INCLUDING PUBLIC SECTOR ONES, INVEST THEIR AGGREGATED PENSION MONIES, AND, HEALTH CARE, INTO a LEGAL GAMBLING CASINO CALLED A STOCK MARKET.
Trump, by the way, altho obvious fact, for idiots, is NOT a stock market corporation.
IRONICALLY, when LABOR UNION pension monies do NOT return promised gains from their stock market casino investments, PUBLIC sector unions cry foul and have a UNIQUE option, NOT AVAILABLE TO ANYONE ELSE, saying TAXPAYERS MUST foot the bill and make up the difference as a GUARANTEED PENSION BENEFIT!!
Well, there are NO guarantees in this game.
ALL IS FAIR in love and war!
DO NOT INVEST YOUR PENSION MONIES INTO PRIVATE CORPORATIONS.
Otherwise, YOU PAY THE PIPER, along with EVERYONE ELSE!
As a NATION, WE COULD and SHOULD EXPAND SOCIAL SECURITY CONTRIBUTIONS AND BENEFITS!
ALL ORGANIZED LABOR OUT OF A PRIVATE PENSION FUND INVESTMENT BUSINESS ENTIRELY!!
But, THEY WILL NOT DO THAT.
NOBODY, INSIDE OR OUTSIDE, TO CONFRONT, CHALLENGE, CHANGE, ALTER, THESE POLICIES.
SO, NO CHANGE TO OCCUR.
Our unions, here, are NOT OUR friends, they are ENEMIES, PARTNERS, with those above and below.
I would also suggest IF, somehow, magically, Trump decided, which I assure you will NOT happen, to MAKE A MAJOR PART OF HIS PROGRAM A SINGLE PAYER HEALTH CARE SYSTEM, then, HE, TOO, WOULD DISAPPEAR ENTIRELY FROM THE POLITICAL SCENE, ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, thru
ECONOMIC BLACKMAIL, AND/OR, ASSASSINATION.
Also, if you notice, NO candidate proposes a tax on ALL CRIMINAL STOCK MARKET TRANSACTIONS--an enormous revenue opportunity.
Now, as for our infamous 2nd amendment and gun, rifle, ownership, which, I realize, are PRIMARILY used for hunting purposes in certain areas of the state, NOT ONE gun utilized to DEFEND AND SEIZE THEIR OWN INDUSTRIES!!
IF Trump represented a REAL MOVEMENT, then, TACTICS other than, or, in addition to, VOTING should apply to BACK UP their demands.
When he says he is ONLY the messenger, THEY should TAKE THAT TO HEART AND ORGANIZE BEYOND WHAT HE SAYS!
And, IF we had a REAL OPPOSITION, THAT PRECISELY IS WHAT WOULD HAPPEN!
Neither Trump nor ANY other PRIVATE CAPITAL PROVIDER CREATES WEALTH, ADDED VALUE.
It is their employees and others who create and make ADDED VALUE appear.
But, WHAT they create is questionable since THEY do NOT make PRODUCTION decisions or resource ALLOCATION, national priorities, based on need, etc.
Those who produce wealth have NO input into national OR international priorities and HOW things could or should be done, alternative possibilities.
Private capital SUCKS!
We are NOW an endangered species with varying states of emergency, disaster, war, endemic, systemic, grinding, poverty, man made and natural crisis, BUT, nobody discusses WHAT a rationally planned economy SHOULD OR COULD LOOK LIKE BECAUSE COLLECTIVELY WE OWN NO MEANS OF PRODUCTION or distribution and thus CAN AND DO NOT CONTROL OUR OWN COLLECTIVE DESTINY.
ALL ECONOMIC decisions are made by INDIVIDUALS FOR, NOT BY, US represented by people such as Trump, Jamie Dimon from the notorious HOUSE OF JP MORGAN (and Rockefeller), CEOs, MAJOR SHAREHOLDERS WHO ADD NO WEALTH whatsoever, often competing with one another, additionally.
COLLECTIVELY WE HAND POWER TO THEM ON A SILVER PLATTER THANKS PRIMARILY TO THE INSIDIOUS ROLE OF OUR AFL-CIA/SEIU!
I agree with Hillary, it takes a village, or, an entire nation, civilization, to raise a child, children, and we have THROWAWAY CHILDREN, PEOPLE, BOTH HERE AND ABROAD.
Surplus eaters, populations.
Former USSR YOUNG PIONEERS represent a VAST difference!
NOW, RECIDIVIST CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY ROCKEFELLER/MORGAN/CITIGROUP/EXXON, their PRIVATE international and domestic partners, including IMF, receive FREE MONEY, SUBSIDIES, STIMULUS, QE, AND, I MIGHT ADD, LUXURY REAL ESTATE BUBBLES, not to mention DEBT.
Trump says NOTHING about LIQUIDATING, PROSECUTING, TOUCHING THE UNTOUCHABLES, UNNAMEABLE, ABOVE, NOR, DEBT REPUDIATION.
He DID talk about debt renegotation but that discussion seems to have disappeared.
Then, ISIS being another manufactured amorphous enemy which is a response to the FACT that the IRAQ WAR AND OCCUPATION WAS OUTSOURCED ENTIRELY TO AN EXPANSIONIST AND HOSTILE IRAN regime, and, their junior partner, KRG, thus, further destabilizing an entire region.
So, now, a corresponding SURROGATE military response from the Saudis was created, i.e., ISIS, bankrolling an ecclectic Opposition which, MAYBE, MIGHT well encompass some homegrown RESISTANCE, PARTISANS, since it is not difficult to imagine causes of hostility, despair, desparation, revenge.
The US, along with ALL others combined, have significant INVESTMENT interests in Saudi Arabia, Iran, and everywhere else throughout the region, so, they remain conflicted about what to do, how to do it, whom to support.
Thus begins a never ending war of attrition the consequences of which we see at the moment.
Speaking of never ending wars of attrition, let's talk Turkey.
I read a lot of varying comments about Turkey's supposed failed Gulen coup, including Turkey's POSSIBLE partition.
One result of it becomes perfectly clear, however.
ISLAMIC AKP ERDOGAN DICATORSHIP "WHOSE PASSION IS TO SELL STATE ENTERPRISES," partnered with CITIGROUP AND IRAN, CONSOLIDATED ITS POWER as a consequence of what SLEAZEBAG Erdogan called a Gift from God, with Turkey's military NOW answering ONLY to HIM!!
ALL former NATIONALISTS, KEMALISTS, GONE!!
Well, it is/was hardly a gift from God, Allah, instead, a much more plebian source.
Aside from whether or not Gulen actually was involved, something I STILL question, there are PLENTY of extenuating, overlapping, circumstances, reasons, actors, aside from Erdogan himself, POSSIBLY complicit, like, KURDISH, Iranian, interests and the KRG.
Related to above operatives, I ask a rhetorical question how come OUR terrorists NEVER target STRATEGIC INTERESTS like those below??:
So, let Happy Warriors HERE go off to battle, PLEASE.
Let them walk into this quicksand, cesspool.
The more the better as far as I'm concerned.
And, now, for a Trump rally.
One footnote before viewing.
Trump's MOTIVES often are questioned.
In fact, he does have much to lose and does NOT need to further gain anything materially.
I do take him at his word on this matter.
In his OWN warped way, representing both CLASS and HOW ITS SYSTEMIC POWER STRUCTURE operates here, I BELIEVE HE BELIEVES he is pursuing an HISTORICAL LEGACY.
His material empire being a transient one, not particularly significant, not at the top of a NAZI DUNG HEAP, THIS POTENTIAL venture, from HIS vantage point, does create a LEGACY FOR HIM.
I really think THAT represents his primary motivation.
And, as I say repeatedly, since NO ORGANIZED OPPOSITION exists here, a political vacuum, HE becomes de facto THE Opposition, by default, as described above and repeatedly in my many posts.
