The Odds of Getting a Good Leader – “If we simply do the math, we recognize that, in all likelihood, an individual in a senior political position (state representative on up) is pathological. Whilst, conceptually, the mind recoils at the thought, the numbers illustrate that it’s not only possible but highly likely. Small wonder, then, that on the odd occasion that we see a highly principled individual throw his hat into the ring, he’s almost always trounced in the primaries. Should he actually attain office, he’s likely to last only a term or two before he’s had enough of “the swamp.” He either drops out or becomes a swamp creature himself.” – Jeff Thomas

Assassination Nation – “Almost from its beginning, the CIA established an assassination program, which included the preparation of an assassination manual. The manual trained CIA personnel in the art of assassination and, equally important, in ways to prevent people from recognizing the assassination as being state-sponsored. Making killings look like accidents was one of the methods in which CIA assassins would be trained. Central to this assassination program was secrecy.” – Jacob G. Hornberger

Impeachment: Does Anyone Even Care? – ““Pelosi is crushing McConnell, step by strategic step.” So a true-blue liberal website known as the Daily Kos declared in a bizarre headline last month. It’s as good an example as any of how completely Democrats have retreated into a fantasy world all their own. Pelosi is not crushing anyone. Thanks to the ongoing impeachment fiasco, she’s caught in a trap of her own devising and is unable to take a single step without making matters worse.” – Daniel Lazare

Just A Reminder We Were Warned, Not Once but Twice – Enjoy the Stench of A Rotting Society – Rory Hall   – GOOD ARTICLE FROM RORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To Know You Don’t Know – “The US joins the long list of meddlers who have lost blood, treasure, credibility, prestige, and power in the Middle East. It has been unable to impose its version of order on the heart of Chaostan. Iran itself offers the perfect example. Does the assassination of Qassem Soleimani constitute a win or a loss for the United States? There is only one way to “win” in the Middle East. Buy its oil and otherwise stay the hell out.” – Robert Gore  – LONG, BUT GOOD READ FROM ROBERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Iran Must Begin Acting Like A Normal Nation,” Says Totally Normal Nation – “The government which runs a globe-spanning empire led by a reality TV host keeps talking about the lack of normality in the nation of Iran.” – Caitlin Johnstone

Did Pompeo Dupe Trump Into the Soleimani Hit?? – “Donald Trump is under the illusion that the fracas with Iran is over. He thinks that Iran’s pinprick missile strikes on US bases in Iraq have assuaged Tehran’s thirst for revenge. But he’s wrong. The missile strikes were merely the first salvo in an epic cage match between Iran’s Axis of Resistance and its 70 year-long nemesis, the United States” – Mike Whitney

Trump Brags About Selling Troops to Saudi Arabia for $1 Billion – “During a recent interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, U.S. President Donald Trump made some telling comments about the true motives behind the foreign policy of the United States. In effect, Trump was suggesting that U.S. troops are acting as mercenaries for Saudi Arabia.” – John Vibes  – THAT WAS THE EXACT TAKE I GOT WHEN I HEARD THE INTERVIEW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sedition in Real Time – “It is a wonder of these incendiary times that even as impeachment of a president moves to its ripest phase, trial in the Senate, the acts of sedition that prompted it still go on behind the scenes with no intervention — an epic failure of authority, if there ever was one. And further irony, if ever there was a trial that cried for witnesses, the impeachment case being brought by Mrs. Pelosi is such a hash of fraud, incompetence, and chicanery, that it begs for summary dismissal — so that these seditious caitiffs will not have to answer to the nation” – James Howard Kunstler

“A Ridiculous Choice” – FISA Court Sparks Firestorm, Appoints Conflicted, Anti-Trump Attorney To Oversee FBI Fixes – Tyler Durden

FISA Court judge signals cover-up underway with outrageous appointment of lefty Lawfare blogger to oversee ‘reform’ – “If you are 100% certain that Jeffrey Epstein killed himself, then you will be delighted by the appointment of David Kris to oversee a review of the FBI’s practices in seeking FISA Court approval of its applications to spy on American citizens. The rest of us must conclude that the fix, once again, as so often with the Deep State, is in.” – Thomas Lifson

93% negative: Big 3 networks donate 124 hours to Dem campaign against Trump – “Broadcasters in ‘frenzy over impeachment'” – WND Staff

The war on media comes home – “Why would anyone in his right mind place blind faith in these newspeople? The answer is simple. No one who gives that faith is in his right mind. He has surrendered his mind. Surrendered it to the need for authority. “You have to trust somebody.” This is the rube and yokel factor.” – Jon Rappoport

To (Phase One) Trade Deal Or Not To (Phase One) Trade Deal, That Is This Week’s Question – Paul “Half Dollar” Eberhart

409Ks, 90% Gains, The Fed and Darth Vader’s Warning – “The worship of mortals as demi-gods and faith in Golden Idols triggers a turn in the karmic wheel as near-infinite hubris invites divine retribution. President Trump and the Federal Reserve agree: the “solution” to inequality and malaise is to boost the 409Ks of the top 5%, leaving the rest of the American workforce as glorified servants of the few who benefit from a record-setting stock market.” – Charles Hugh Smith
