THE MAIN THING IS TO MAKE SURE THE MAIN THING STAYS THE MAIN THING.
Smoke-n-mirrors (aka Horse-n-Pony, aka Tail-Wagging-The-Dog) tactics are not new to Trump and Co., BUT Trump Inc. has had a plethora of more reasons to utilize them than any 10 other corrupt frauds combined.
Case(s) in point:
- Trump’s NAFTA battle with Canada,
- Trump’s Border Security battle with Mexico,
- Trump’s war on the Media, calling them repeatedly “The Enemy”,
- Trump’s war against all 17 of America’s LE & Intel agencies,
- Trump’s battles with celebrities, athletes, the entire NFL,
- Trump’s smear campaign against Mueller and The FBI,
- Trump’s attacks alienating us from out ALLIES,
- Trump’s Tariff war on, well, everyone,
- and lastly for this list, Trump’s blathering about the Kavanaugh confirmation.
These are important in their proper context, BUT in the context that Trump is using it is nothing but SMOKE-N-MIRRORS to distract us.
“To distract us from what?” Oh, how about from THIS:
Trump revealed intelligence secrets to Russians in Oval Office: officials
North Korea says army must develop to be able to beat U.S.
Truth squad: Has Iran said it wants to attack Israel?
[NOTE: Some may argue that this is from 7 years ago…my response? Has Iran changed it’s mind or attitude/stance towards Israel and the U.S.? NO.]
Iran and North Korea: Dangerous partners in nuclear proliferation
BY RAYMOND TANTER, OPINION CONTRIBUTOR — 12/29/17 02:15 PM EST
Recall Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia, and the United States formed a political commitment with Iran in Geneva on July 14, 2015. The third anniversary of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, known as the Iran deal will be mid-July 2018. (The deal was neither a treaty nor signed.)
But now there is a new wrinkle concerning Iran: Tehran is an apparent partner in proliferation with North Korea. Iran can get around the “sunset provision” of refraining from a nuclear weapons breakout for 10 years after the commitment was made among the parties to the 2015 nuclear deal: Tehran would be able to purchase technology or knowledge related to building a nuclear weapon from Pyongyang and breakout far sooner.
“As North Korea continues to improve its ability to do longer-range missiles and to put nuclear weapons on those missiles, it is very unlikely, if they get that capability, that they wouldn’t share it with lots of folks, and Iran would certainly be someone who would be willing to pay them for it.”
“Iran currently possesses more ballistic missiles than any other country in the Middle East but remains dependent on foreign suppliers for missile development and production.”
THAT LAST “BIGLY” LEADS US TO THIS ONE:
North Korea threatens to unleash ‘unimaginable’ nuclear strike on U.S.
North Korea issued another threat of nuclear annihilation against the U.S. on Thursday, vowing to unleash an “unimaginable strike at an unimaginable time.”
The warning comes as American military forces conduct ongoing joint naval exercises with South Korea — and as top U.S. officials warned the rogue regime’s nuclear capabilities are close to being perfected.
LASTLY, WE MUST NOT LET TRUMP &Co. DISTRACT US FROM THIS:
SO, YEAH, the nine things listed as distractions at the start are important in their own way and in their own context…BUT they are fodder for a multitude of distractions from the REAL BIG, BAD NEWS:
TRUMP & Co. ARE GUILTY OT TREASON
And that this treason has so compromised and weakened us that we may not be able to withstand the coming global onslaught…not to mention that the global economies are on verge of a COLLAPSE that will make 1929 look like a picnic in paradise.
