In case you haven’t heard, the United States has launched a missile attack within Syria in retaliation for the apparent chemical weapons attack there.
The Wall Street Journal reports “The U.S. military launched nearly 60 Tomahawk cruise missiles against a Syrian air base Friday, responding to mounting calls for a display of force in the wake of this week’s suspected chemical-weapons attack in Syria.”
The US missile strike is additionally significant in that “The strikes represented the first time a U.S. military operation deliberately targeted the regime of President Bashar al-Assad”

What May Happen As A Result Of US Missile Attack In Syria?
As I drove from east to west today across the state of New Mexico on our current trip, Mrs.J and I were talking. One of the subjects had to do with the political and ideological division in this country, and how there are incredible and powerful efforts underway to undermine the nationalist movement within the United States.
Something that has always bugged me… That is, how we are ‘forced’ and ‘herded’ into one of two ideals… LEFT or RIGHT.
We have been saddled here in the U.S. with a predominantly 2-party political system and I believe that it may be done this way for a reason.
Here’s the reason:
I don’t mean to lump everyone on the ‘right'(ish) side of the political spectrum as Trump supporters, however I believe that this broad-brush paints the picture well enough.
I sense it, I see it, and there’s no doubt that many have stopped prepping since Trump won the presidential election. Certainly not all have stopped, though a percentage have stopped and an additional percentage have largely pulled back.
Apparently they are encouraged enough such that there is a belief that the problems, the risks, the dangers, are either gone or suppressed to the point of complacency that Trump will fix everything.
The mistake that they are making is that there is an epic battle going on, right now, between ‘the deep state’ (yes, it exists) and Trump himself and the ideals that he brings to the table. They are diametrically opposed to each-other. The deeply rooted globalist/socialist/communist (and the neocon) opposition versus a nationalist/populist movement is on fire, and this thing is just getting started…
I couldn’t help but correlate what I recently read over on ZeroHedge to the reality that many people are ‘on the edge’ (paycheck to paycheck) with being able to pay their mortgage (“Mortgage Delinquencies Rise Most In 7 Years As Rates Spike”), indicative of the fragility that exists within the structure of our debt burgeoned system and society.
Evidently 30-year mortgage rates have increased from about 3.6% to around 4.4% during the past four months (inflation is coming) and the affects of corresponding higher mortgage payments (for some types of mortgages) have caused a sudden rise in delinquencies.
This is an indication of two things…
1. Inflation is coming (here?) 0.8% mortgage rate increase in four months.
2. Just how tight people’s budgets are – with literally zero wiggle room – such that they cannot afford to pay the uptick in mortgage payment. There’s no margin.
“STOCKS AROUND THE WORLD CONTINUE TO ADVANCE. The trend remains upward and although nearly every method we know of for measuring market sentiment is preposterously over-extended to the upside, and although nearly every method we know of to measure relative value is equally over-extended to the upside, the great game of investment musical chairs continues.”
“As happened in the dot.com Bubble of near the turn of this century, prices were egregiously, preposterously, stupendously, stupidly over-extended to the upside and then continued to become even more egregiously, preposterously, stupendously and stupidly over-extended for months and months and months.”
“The “Melt Up” has begun in earnest and it will stop when it stops and not a moment before.”
“The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.”
What do you think of this quote from George Orwell?
Is this happening before our eyes? Is truth now considered ‘hate’ by some (or by many)?
If yes, then why is that?
