    Things may get interesting around the end of the year. It appears Israel may be leaking information that Iran may have enough nuclear material by the end of 2020 to build at least one nuke. If that’s the case then we may be getting set up for some action by Israel to prevent Iran having a nuke or a subtle warning that if the West doesn’t do something Israel will.

    They’ve been sneakily processing small batches of uranium but are spinning up to do so wholesale. It’s going to be an interesting year.

    THE LEFT in a frenzy over Lev Parnas interview by Rachel Maddow.

    “It’s all true… Trump, Pence, Barr, Nunes, Giuliani (and others) all going to jail”.

    The left are very much pushing the notion that MIKE PENCE is culpable too…

    Rachel Maddow says:
    “If the President and the Vice President are both culpable in this scandal. If they were both carrying out this scheme personally. That makes Impeachment a different thing than it was before”

    THE LEFT THINK THAT TRUMP AND PENCE will be removed from office….

    Not expecting what we saw we watched the premiere of ’68 Whiskey’ on Paramount last night. It wasn’t so much the hype but since Ron Howard’s an executive producer ewe thought we’d give it a go.

    It opens with two medics having graphic sex in a supply room and goes down from there. The medics deploy to an Afghan village and bring back a severely wounded Afghan national who speaks three languages only to have the chief surgeon chide them for bringing in a national and wasting medical supplies that are for American use. Some more graphic sex talk and then on to two of the main medics who are stealing medical supplies and trading them to Afghans (Taliban?) for hashish. While in the village trading the drugs for drugs they run into a shadowy American figure who leads a group of heavily armed men dressed in civilian clothes who all drive around in big, black SUVs. Implications are that these are evil Blackwater-type contractors who are going to do something evil to the village soon.

    It ends with a female medic finding out from gher commander that she’s being involuntarily discharged from the Army, immediately, as her DACA status is being revoked and she’s to be sent back to the US and deported. “But I was promised citizenship”, she whines. Fade to yuck.

    It’s billed as a new ‘MASH’ for a new generation. A generation of millennial Democrats maybe, but it’s an insult to serving and veterans who’ve served not only since 911 but back to the Revolutionary War. We’re not seeing the bored sarcasm of MASH, we’re seeing US troops portrayed as uncaring, drug dealing and having the morals of an alley cat. If this is MASH it’s MASH as done by Larry Flynt with a touch of Tarantino. It’s off my ‘watch list’.

      I had already decided not to watch that. But, your review tells me my decsion was the correct one. There was another military themed show a few years ago like that and, it, too started out with sex and proceeded to be Hollywooded all through.

      Ron Howard has fallen to a new low in filmmaking. Does he plan to feature a new sex act as an opener for each episode? The audience he hopes to appeal to is much more jaded than he assumes and will expect porn…so we see where his career will go next. Pathetic.

    FLASHBACK: GAO Found Barack Obama Broke the Law in 2014 and Put US Lives in Danger – But No Calls for His Impeachment
    by Jim Hoft – January 16, 2020

    Speaker Pelosi switched tactics once again this morning.
    Democrats now want to impeach President Trump for not giving tax-payer dollars to the corrupt Ukrainian government fast enough.
