A Holiday Tradition: Fresh Jackass


With all of the madness of the impending hostilities in Syria, what a perfect time to connect once again with The Golden Jackass himself, Jim Willie.

As you might expect, Jim has his own theories as to the rationale for these recent events and they differ somewhat from the mainstream script. So, rather than poke and prod, today I just gave Jim the microphone so he can explain in his own words what he thinks is behind this seeming rush to war in Syria.

Here is a link to the article that accompanies this interview: https://news.goldseek.com/GoldenJackass/1377892800.php

So, sit back, relax and open your mind. Consider what Jim has to say, form your own conclusions and prepare accordingly. TF

Double bogey

From what I've seen, double bogey every hole might be pretty
respectable for that guy.

What did Jim Willie and I

What did Jim Willie and I tell you yesterday? I said he was going to bluster and posture and do nothing.

It's a rerun of the late 80s, when the Russians were mired in the Middle East, and we watched them bankrupt themselves trying to dominate the area, while the CIA supported the insurgents.

Now the roles reversed..

Oh boy, what a load of crap! Zero allegedly came up with this scheme to toss the hot potato to Congress last night all by his little ole self. My azz. And now he's off golfing with Biden.

Hey, Zero.....I hope you double bogey every damn hole.

Well played, Mr. President

Now he can go to the G20 conference without having a conversation about Syria bombing Israel while the meetings are in session.

Congress reconvenes on Sept. 9. If Congress declines to support an attack on Syria, he can blame them for our failure to retaliate. If they support the attack, he silences the detractors who demanded he follow the Constitution.

It’s aways all about the optics, and he wins politically either way.

@ Turd

Thanks for the heads up. Now listening to Obama.

Over at the BIS the bankers are listening too, and stroking themselves with glee.
