    Default TV PUNDITS PRAISING SULEIMANI ASSASSINATION NEGLECT TO DISCLOSE TIES TO ARMS INDUSTRY

    SINCE FRIDAY, a loud chorus of voices has appeared in the media to celebrate President Donald Trump’s decision to assassinate Iranian Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, a move that has sparked renewed tension in the Middle East, a new deployment of U.S. forces, and predictions of increased military spending.

    Many of the pundits who appeared on national television or were quoted in major publications to praise the president’s actions have undisclosed ties to the defense industry — the only domestic industry that stands to gain from increased violence.

    Jack Keane, a retired Army general, appeared on Fox News and NPR over the last three days to praise Trump for the strike on Suleimani. “The president acted responsibly,” Keane said during an appearance with Fox News host Lou Dobbs. “It should have happened a long time ago.” Keane has worked for military companies, including General Dynamics and Blackwater, and currently serves as a partner at SCP Partners, a venture capital firm that invests in defense contractors.

    There you have it folks. This is the enemy within that the founders warned us about. Those and the sociopaths who now comprise the majority of the Republi-con party.

    A Modest Proposal For Separating Blue States From Red

    Dear Red-State Trump Voter,
    Letís face it, guys: Weíre done.


    It is a tragedy that so much of the work that so many men and women toiled at for so long to make this a better country, and a better world, has been thrown away, leaving us all in such needless peril.

    This is why our separation in all but name is necessary.

    And you would never hear about these types without investigative journalism, which is why fascist regimes demonize the press.

    The enemies within are the Democratic Party of the Jackass and their allies in the PHONY media promoting Anti-American propaganda and hating this President who has done a lot of good for all Americans.

    I don't think siding with our enemies and hating on America will serve the Party of the Jackass well in the 2020 elections.

    Of course, you're too big of a moron and partisan hack to comprehend the OBVIOUS. I am happy that the left has chosen Iran over America.

    Ironic considering that the Party of the Jackass has been the largest profligator of the military-industrial complex in most of our wars.

    There is no investigative journalism in this country anymore. It is more like the propaganda arm of the DNC. Pravda would be proud of today's PHONY media.

    This is an example of how the plutocrats who fund the GOP profit from their political investments.

    And CNN anchors that bemoaned Suleimani’s death didn’t disclose their investments in the diaper industry.
    Trump doesn't wear glasses because he already has 2020.

    You don't have to invest in the MIC to realize why Suleimani was a valid and significant target. It does probably require not being obsessed with opposing Trump, however.

    Trump could singlehandedly cure cancer and they would complain about disrupting the circle of life.
