Amid growing threats to security caused at least in part by a shrinking state department and incompetent foreign policy under the regime of popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп, U.S. Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog” Mattis sought to reassure nervous allies about America’s commitment to the Asia-Pacific region. So, General Mattis gave a speech at an annual Asian security conference in Singapore.
“Once we’ve exhausted all possible alternatives, the Americans will do the right thing,” Mattis said to the crowd in an effort to reassure them.
I guess this means that if Donald Трамп heads to the Pacific, General Mattis will send him home!
North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, who’s like their version Donald Трамп, fired another ballistic missile from his country into the Sea of Japan earlier this week.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has described such North Korean launches as a “grave threat to our country” and “absolutely not acceptable.”
On Thursday, the Pentagon sent two aircraft carriers, the USS Carl Vinson and USS Ronald Reagan, to the Sea of Japan for a three-day drill alongside Tokyo’s navy and air force. It involved Japanese Air Self Defence Force F-15s taking part in simulated combat with U.S. Navy F-18 fighters as part of what was characterized by Tokyo as a “major exercise.”
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has declared America’s era of strategic patience with North Korea over. He has also refused to take possibility of military action off the table.
In later remarks, Tillerson said candidly that the possibility of war in North Korea would be a good way to quickly start drilling for oil in the Arctic.
“We start fighting in North Korea, the whole country argues about that, we stop talking about global warming for a while, then, boom, we slip right in and sign a deal with Russia to drill for oil up there! It’s a win-win!”
When Tillerson was reminded that, as Secretary of State, his chief job is to prevent war, not wage it, Tillerson farted.
Popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп’s press secretary Sean “Sphincter” Spicer said that a recent racist attack on LeBron James’ home was not indicative of a trend of increased racist violence since Трамп assumed the office of President.
April Ryan, White House correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks, highlighted the racist slogan painted on James’ Los Angeles property as yet another sign, which Spicer denied.
“I would respectfully disagree with the premise of that,” Spicer said.
When another reporter pointed out the multiple swastikas painted on houses, the chants from high school students to “Build the Wall” and other racist language directed at immigrant students, the reported increase in hate crimes in the country since 2015, attacks on people of color in public transportation spaces (including ripping hijabs off of the heads of young women), the murder of an African-American man by a white supremacist in New York City, the murder of an Indian man in Kansas by a gun-toting white supremacist, recent rallies by white nationalists including a crowd carrying torches led by Richard Spencer, recent statistics that show in the last 15 years more people have been killed by white supremacists than any other terrorist group, and the recent murder of two people in Portland by an avowed white supremacist who was verbally abusing two women of color, Spicer nodded, dropped a smoke bomb, then went to his hiding spot in the bushes outside of the White House.
Reports say that Spicer read ‘Archie’ comic books while sitting in the bushes until the reporters finally left.
All I’m gonna say is, if you want to know how much of an ally Bill Maher has been to progressive causes, talk to your progressive Muslim friends and see what they say.
Have you done your part today? If not, take a moment to decide what to do, how you can help, and pitch in! Maybe pitching in for you means telling me I’m dumb, go for it! Whatever it is, make your time count!
