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

Dear Sir Turd

You are one class act.

Even though I've contributed in the past, so far I've stayed outside of the paywall.

You put Dr. Willie outside of the paywall.

Others predicted the demise of your site. Keep up your keen Turd-sense of what people need and want, and you'll have zero problems.

With respectful gratitude,

I have not listened to the podcast yet, but am a little concerned. I am used to "grilled Jackass" on major holiday weekends in the summer. Not sure how I will handle "fresh Jackass".

A girl with colitis goes by

So I am told

Or as it has been said

Don't go out tonight

There's bound to be a fight

There is a bathroom on the right.

jim willie cb

is fun to listen to. I've been reading his stuff for at least ten years, since way before the golden jackass. He is, however, wont to wander off with the sand worms and Beetlejuice. You were right turd to reel him in from the "nuclear bombs caused Fukushima" tirade he started in last time you talked, but you bit down hard on his sunburn nonsense. The range of a sunburn is 120 nm. The range of a tomahawk is 700 nm. The sunburn is Soviet Union era tech... not that it won't kill you in the Straits of Hormuz but the med is a big place and not difficult to stay out of range. If we are stupid and arrogant enough to shoot at the Syrians it will probably be done from an Ohio class SSGN, and the 5 Arleigh Burke DDG"s are just window dressing, or there in case we need plan B, which wouldn't surprise me.

Edit: Also see sheetrockers comments on the last thread about how much trouble the murdered (according to j.w.) Prince Bandar is causing with Putin.

A BRICS Bank Near You Soon?

BRICS countries come close to establishing reserve bank

The BRICS member-countries have come close to establishing a reserve bank which will operate as a stabilization fund, Chinese Finance Minister Chen Zhu Guangyao said. Should such a fund be set up, it will prove helpful in restricting the dollar’s influence on the developing countries’ economies, experts say. Brazil came up with the initiative to set up a reserve bank in 2012. A relevant agreement was signed in March this year. The joint fund of the BRICS member-states is meant for offering support to the countries united in the BRICS Group in case their economic indices start to deteriorate...... Read More
