THE ABSURD TIMES — STILL

The Trump Pawns

Posted in Uncategorized by @honestcharlie on May 9, 2017

THE ABSURD TIMES

Illustration: For a long time, I had nothing but contempt for LBJ, what with his forcing hundreds of thousands of people into the military combat in an illegal, vile, and disgusting war. Now, he looks like a prophet. He passed Medicare, the Civil Rights Act, the law that forbids discrimination on basis of NATIONAL ORIGIN, and so on. At the same time, he was John Kennedy’s vice President and the Republican opponent, Barry Goldwater, advocating “bombing Hanoi into the stone age,” and the John Birch Society (a fascistic organization backed by the Koch brothers’ father – yes the ones who were behind the Tea Party)

If what he had so say above is not clear, perhaps you have heard of Bob Dylan:

http://absurdtimes.blogspot.com/2017/05/only-pawn-in-their-game-bob-dylan.html

So what has happened? Well, France just proved they had more brains than the American Public, but to be fair, her opponent was not very well-known, and he was certainly not the product of a fixed system as was Hillary.

On to Trump, starting with international affairs. Brexit made Trump possible. Trump made Le Pen impossible. This will continue. When we heard about the hack, if there was one, and heard that there was no election discussion possible, we posted this: http://absurdtimes.blogspot.com/2017/05/dear-france-juste-une-note-pour-vous.html

Fortunately, France got the idea and the warning was not needed. Putin would like the European Union to fall apart, but that is unlikely now.

The attacks on Hispanics and especially Mexicans here have made our servant in Mexico very unpopular. This will lead to the election of Obrador as the next President of Mexico. We will do our best to prevent this, and the CIA knows it will come. Will they follow orders and kill him first? Even the previous right-wing President, Fox, said “We will not pay for your fucking wall!” [Direct quote]

Speaking of Putin: he does not want NATO expanding eastward. Russia has always been surrounded by enemies and of course he hates Hillary. She helped the coup to overthrow a friendly leader (to Russia) with a fascist oriented one. What is to be expected.

Let’s move internally: Hillary announced that she is part of the resistance! Who does she think she is fooling? She is part of what many here resisted. Many who voted for Trump originally voted for Obama – because he seemed to want to change things for the better. This time around, Bernie Sanders attracted many of those who wanted such changes, but that was buried.

The typical Trump voter did not know much about policy, but most of them are furious at the healthcare dismantling the Republicans are carrying out. Right now, they want to cut 840 Billion dollars from Medicaid. Why? It’s a part of “Tax Reform”. In this case, it means giving that money to the upper 1% of the population. Of the 217 representatives who voted for this atrocity, only 17 were brave enough to have a town hall this time. None of them were well-received.

Forget about net neutrality. Forget about FCC regulation. Right wing forces are taking over the media. For example, Sinclair is taking over the Tribune – a right-wing newspaper at best, but at least a newspaper. Get used to slower speeds. However, in order to comment to the FCC, you can go to GOFCCYOURSELF.COM . See, they made it incredibly complicated this time to comment, so this site was set up in order to make it easier.

If we want to discuss regulation, the best sign so far in the many demonstrations is: DEREGULATE MY UTERUS! I know, it’s a women’s thing, but they have no impute as to this health care bill. All the senators working on the Senate version are white males of middle age (mainly).

The Absurd Times Day of Prayer

THE ABSURD TIMES

Illustration: one of the many by Latuff on the "Day of Disaster" in Palestine, the day Israel was imposed of the people of the land. Many left still holding the keys to their houses and the legal deeds to their land. Many still have them, and that is part of what the "Right to Return" is all about.

NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER

BY

ARTHUR SCHOPENHAUER

We are supposed to celebrate a national day of prayer. Thrilling.

The President made a speech saying that the right of free speech also exists on the steps of a church or synagogue. Not a word about Mosques, Temples, and the right NOT TO PRAY.

The remaining illustrations are more examples of vile greed carried out in the name of God:


Let us all bow our heads in prayer.

EYE ON THE WEST BANK ~~ SUPPORT GROWS FOR PRISONERS’ HUNGER STRIKE

Posted in Uncategorized by @honestcharlie on April 30, 2017

Desertpeace

As envisaged during the last days, at this very moment the daily clashes during the rallies to support Palestinian prisoners increased in the West Bank. The population feels very close to the protest of the empty stomachs, even if there are no hopeful news. The number of arrested minors is also increasing, in particular in the refugee camps. In this article, I am trying to tell you my impressions on-site. 

Broad support for Palestinian prisoners’ hunger strike

Rallies in the West Bank

By Antonietta Chiodo,  from the West Bank. English Translation by Milena Rampoldi

I am here in the West Bank, close to the Palestinian population to describe daily life and to show that a child is forced to live a completely different life than the life we could imagine in a normal Western country, even if the latter is often rather boring.

In my previous articles, I have…

The Absurd Times Palestine, Korea, Facts — Anyone Care?

Posted in Uncategorized by @honestcharlie on April 26, 2017


THE ABSURD TIMES


Most of this is about Palestine, but some on Korea as well. The guy on the left has realistic fears for his country. The other is not real. Also, a tale of two leaders.

PALESTINE – ANYBODY CARE?

By

KARL PICKENS

Much has been going on in Palestine lately, but this is baseball season so our media isn’t covering it. Also, too much free entertainment provided live by announcements by Sean Spicer and worthless executive order signings. In addition, clips of Donald’s true love Ivanka getting booed for supporting her father as an advocate of women’s rights. ""Oh Daddy, Daddy, so good."

We have a few drawings by the great Latuff on Palestine. Once some Zionist organization in the U.S. ranked him as the third most anti-Semitic person in the world. For this we congratulated him, for only two beat him out as the leader, while in fourth place were European Football (Soccer) Fans. That one category includes millions, so his achievement cannot be overlooked.

After that, we have an interview with Barghouti on Palestine, followed by one with Noam Chomsky that reminds us of WHY Norther Korea is so concerned about us.

(Not Latuff)
And some info:


And now for Barghouti, after Israel arrested him for trying to come here, but finally got here to accept his award:

As more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners have entered their ninth day on a massive hunger strike inside Israeli jails, we are joined by the Palestinian activist Omar Barghouti, who has come to the United States to receive the 2017 Gandhi Peace Award for his work as co-founder of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions, or BDS, movement. At the award ceremony, Barghouti dedicated the prize to Palestinians on hunger strike. He was almost prevented from attending after Israeli police arrested him, seizing his passport and forbidding him from leaving the country. An Israeli court eventually temporarily lifted the travel ban.
