Why Is Trump Eager To Go To War With Iran?
Following are some possible reasons why President Donald Trump may be eager to go to war with Iran.
“…there is growing concern among Pentagon officials that Trump will continue trying to use the military as a tool for his own political gain.”
“Pentagon officials have also been unnerved by requests from the White House National Security Council, which continues to ask the Pentagon for options to attack Iran.”
Let’s examine some possible reasons why President Trump might want the United States to declare war with Iran:
#1 It would really help Putin. Why? The Russian economy is pathetic in that it has mainly oil and gas for export and little else. High oil prices would really improve the Russian economy and ensure that Putin, who is the chairman of the oligarch class, remains in power. A war with Iran would drive up oil prices.
“Military conflict between the United States and Iran would threaten to shut the world’s busiest seaway for oil exports and send crude prices to all-time highs, perhaps even to $200 a barrel, according to one analyst.”
#2 A war with Iran should have at least two positive results for President Trump. First is it would divert attention from the investigation of Trump being a traitor. Then, national wars typically result a nation coming together and stymieing political dissent.
Summary: If the United States goes to war with Iran, it only benefits two individuals and many people die for this. It benefits one of our nation’s enemies, Putin and possibly helps Donald Trump. War also helps weapons manufacturers because they sell more product. But war means people die. War means a country’s infrastructure is damaged. This despicable imbalance of reasoning is criminal.

Does The Shocking New York Times Article Have Another Purpose?
Was there any secret purpose to release to the New York Times the shocking story: F.B.I. Opened Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working on Behalf of Russia? Or, was this story just the result of darn good reporters digging this stuff up? Let’s examine a couple of reasons why someone in the FBI, Muller’s investigation group or the New York court system might have informed the New York Times about the facts behind this story to the Times:
#1) Some government employee just might have secretly released the details to the New York Times, to better tie the hands of incoming Attorney General, William P. Barr who Trump seems to have picked knowing of Barr’s opposition to the Mueller’s investigation and may shut it down.
#2) Another possibility is that Mueller, might have some proof that President Trump knowingly colluded with the Russians. Someone close to that investigation would realize that selling this “fact” to the American public is not a one step process of drawing the curtain away suddenly to reveal. A way better tactic is to more slowly show the “facts” to the public. It might be way more intelligent to turn the public’s attention toward the curtain and slowly slide the reveal from under the curtain, inch by inch. The New York Times article could be the first glimpse of what is to come next.
The Democrats Should Not Impeach Trump.
Let me list the reasons why the Democrats should not impeach President Trump:
#1) Trump acts like a bill board for everything wrong with the Republican Party. So many people despise Trump that to remove him would make the Democratic and Republican Party appear more equal.
The apparent reason why the Republicans only stand for gaining power is allegedly many of it’s members are bootlickers for the plutocracy class that paid to get them in office. The United States is no longer a true Democracy but is being ruled by the rich as is the case in way too many other nations. There is also a trend for nations world wide to slide toward authoritarian forms of government, more than we have already with bone spur fat boy.
#2 Pence, being the vice president, would replace Trump if he is impeached but could be as worse as Trump or way worse. “Mike Pence, who mirrors the boss (Trump) more than you realize. He’s also self-infatuated. Also a bigot. Also a liar. Also cruel.”
New Name For The US “Supreme” Court.
This blog has used, for years, the name for the United States ‘Supreme’ Court by putting the word supreme in quotes indicating that it is not supreme because it favors the rich and powerful over the common people. It has not been the people’s court for a very long time and the situation is getting worse. If Brett Kavanaugh is appointed to the court then this blog will change the naming of that court to Supreme Plutocracy Court to reflect it’s actual purpose which is to serve the wishes of the rich and not the needs of the citizens.
Plutocracy definition: government by the wealthy.
Destruction of Democracy In The USA
There are a number of factors that have grown over time to erode the United States as being a democracy. This problem stems from the rich and powerful always finding ways and means to gain advantage for themselves at your expense. This has led to the destruction of Democracy in the USA. Let me list some top methods being used:
Money Buys Politicians
Keep this in mind, as a bench mark or ruler, for your decisions in deciding how successful our government is now. The US constitution was drawn up as a reaction to the tyranny of British rule, and especially the tyranny of the single monarch. Implied from this is the US should fight against authoritarian rule. The US “Supreme” Court in a series of decisions has overturned the original intent of the Constitution. It has “conferred on wealthy people the right to give vast sums of money. This ability of the rich to use their wealth to gain power over our political process and institutions is a new path toward tyranny. The Republican Party is supporting this effort to destroy our democracy.
The “Supreme” Court has germinated a new form of tyranny. The following “Supreme” Court judges are responsible for the nation being taken over by the plutocracy class:
- John Grover Roberts Jr
- Antonin Gregory Scalia, (died 2016)
- Anthony McLeod Kennedy
- Samuel Alito Alito
Note: All of the above judges were appointed by a Republican president.
- Neil M. Gorsuch was appointed by a Republican president and confirmed by a flawed Republican Congress that failed to follow past appointment rules.
- Promote, by every means, that the above “Supreme” Court justices be asked to resign, to step down, because they have made decisions that undermine our democracy.
- Oppose all future “Supreme” Court appointments dictated by the Republican Party.
- Campaign to remove or overturn all “Supreme” Court decisions where money is allowed to influence elections.
- Not allow any money to be paid to politicians or government employees, beyond their salaries.
- All government employees and elected officials can not work for any business related to government issues and oversight legislation for any business or organization after they retire from government service for five years.
American Stitch Alleged Flawed Product, In My Opinion
You hear people sometimes say “buyer beware”. In my mind, it means buyer can get screwed. It happened to me. It all started when I was shopping in a store that offers coats, and clothing that are over stock at apparent discount price. You can some times get great value and find items that are for the wrong season of the year in a store like this. I was looking for a casual long sleeve, pull over, collar shirt. I found two, one from Levi and the other from American Stitch. American means nothing as the shirt was made in China. When I washed the two shirts together the American Stitch bled into the Levi shirt. I checked the care label on the American Stitch and it said dry clean only! I was shocked. The shirt was a casual shirt, not formal. Who in their right mind would make and sell a shirt like this? Why was there not a label on the front of the shirt that shows “Dry Clean Only”?
I went to my local dry cleaner store and the shop owner told me he would charge me $6.27 to dry clean the American Stitch shirt! This is incredibly wrong! I will not keep the American Stitch shirt for obvious reasons. I will get rid of the Levi shirt as it is now damaged. I paid a total of $37.69 for both shirts so I lost that money due to American Stitch selling an alleged AWFUL product. The dry cleaning store owner lectured me that a lot of foreign Internet shirts are not color fast fabric.
I sent the company a complaint letter and here is their reply:
I there, please read the care instructions prior to washing garments.
The care label clearly states this garment must be dry cleaned.
If you washed it in the washing machine, that is likely why you have a problem.
You totally miss the point. I have never had to read the care label on any casual shirt I buy. Your company is outside the norm, in my opinion. What idiotic company creates a casual shirt that requires dry cleaning? A really stupid product.
I should have added, why sell a casual shirt that requires the owner taking the shirt to a dry cleaner and paying over $6 to get it cleaned?
Summary: I do NOT recommend American Stitch products.

The Supreme Court’s McCutcheon et al. v. FEC and Citizens United v. FEC decisions, “has this court conferred on wealthy people the right to give vast sums of money to politicians while undercutting the rights of millions of citizens to cast a ballot.”
Justice Stevens opposed Citizens United v. FEC. “A democracy cannot function effectively when its constituent members believe laws are being bought and sold.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citizens_United_v._FEC)
