CNN headline accidentally* tells the truth

Biden administration fears North Korea building up to a new nuclear test, but hampered by lack of intelligence

*It may have been intentional by a rogue headline writer. If so it had to slip past several people who would have e nixed it

Wow.

I liked it better when the madman who had his finger on the nuclear launch button was our madman.

Seen on Instapundit: “Biden hates Republicans so much, he would rather give oil money to Venezuela and Saudi Arabia than Texas.”

True

Norpois said...

Just wondering if others among Ann's intelligent readers are as disturbed as I am that
POTUS is saying things about "Armageddon" (ie, how the current Ukraine war may become a STRATEGIC nuclear way between USA and USSR (not merely "tactical" -- that's the significance of his use of "Armageddon") .... that Putin will read as actual US policy (which it probably isnt)...and he is playing with our lives in this way ... AT A FUNDRAISER.
Does this bother no one?

No president can legally serve three terms — hence the need for a figurehead. I believe Biden is just a “DDD”: a dummy with dementia who’s in diapers. He says whatever is written on cue cards and signs whatever paper is put in front of him. That allows Obama to run the country from the shadows.

"Biden administration ... hampered by lack of intelligence."

All-purpose headline, re-use as desired. Bonus- you could lay off a bunch of headline writers.

So from college president who thought he was a senator to senator who thinks he's a college president and back again?

Still waiting for some college to give Buttigieg a top job so we can have a transportation system again.

Nothing to discuss. No mob boss in the White House anymore, Trump was/is Putin's buddy and Kamala has never had a "NoKo" pal but Trump had Rocket Man. So everything points to Trump.

The BBC did Ibsen's Ghosts in the Eighties. Kenneth Branagh had the last line, "Mother, give me the sun."

"Eat the sun" was a line from a poem, I thought, it turns out it was a line or part of a line in a lot of poems.

You can also find articles about "eating the sun," an ancient practice of sungazing that was thought to give people special powers, instead of just making them blind. NASA says so according to one website. But don't try it.

Hunter is going to get a speeding ticket and a headlight repair order. The DOJ will claim "See? We're fair!" just before they lock Trump up for an overdue library book.

According to The Hopeless gadfly, "everything points to Trump" starting a nuclear war.

Now, you may wish to laugh at that, for it is indeed laughable, but remember: gadfly truly believes that.

The Nobel Peace Prize is awarded this year to support a CIA color revolution in Belarus.

Women’s rights mean nothing to us in Afghanistan, but Iran provides some effective drones to Russia, and suddenly some woman there is George Floyd. The 2020 US election and the year leading up to it was an intelligence community run color revolution, or better to say, like the spies who run our country, it “had all the earmarks” of one.

gadfly said...

Wow, so Hunter Biden ticked the wrong answer on an application to purchase a gun but then corrected the answer himself in a book he later wrote but I cannot conceive that anyone would read either document.

Then he misfiled his income tax but when told about his error, he paid every dime he owed. Damn that TurboTax software!

Sounds like ten years in jail in a trial conducted in Judge Aileen Cannon's courtroom but IANAL.

tim in vermont said...

We are on the brink of nuclear war because of a CIA color revolution installed a government that could not abide autonomous Russian speaking regions in Ukraine and sought to subjugate them by force of arms. This is a civil war on Russia’s border that we started. Russian was outlawed as an official language. Imagine if Canada did that to Quebec, outlawed French.

It’s important to remember how we got to this precarious situation. We could be enjoying peace in Europe right now. And to top it off, the “Peace Prize” committee has taken sides and revealed itself as a CIA front.

Gadfly, if you lied on that form, you would be rotting in Leavenworth.

Big Mike said...

Oh, is that the party line now, gadfly? Lying on an application to purchase a firearm is okay if you later publish a book that corrects it? And I see the left wing loonies are still using the Turbo Tax defense that worked so well for Tim Geithner, Obama’s crooked Secretary of the Treasury. Hey! Keep going with what works because all animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.

"Wow."

Wow, indeed. It's OK to prescribe puberty blockers off-label, but not HCQ or ivermectin? Sounds like a two-pronged attack on overpopulation.

I don't know what you're taking, but I want some.(wait for it).
Just not as much as you've had.

Remember just two years ago? When Biden's foreign policy was to appease the likes of Xi and Putin? Remember that? And I predicted that the guy in the White House with the same mental acuity as you would get us in a nuclear war? Remember?(probably not). The nuclear clock is inching to midnight and I fervently hope I am wrong but it doesn't look like it. I'll never let you forget, gadfly. You voted for this.
The fed gov just spent 293 million on anti radiation drugs.

Tim at 5:22am- I agree that their was a intel community coup but I think it started in 2016 when Trump won. It was very well orchestrated and patient. The "scandals and collusion" around Trump were fabricated to create distraction and put him on the defensive during his term and then during the election they ramped up fraud to prevent a 2016-like surprise. While I don't think the caused COVID they did maximize it's impact.

I think our friends on the left misunderstand one thing. They are not in charge. It's the intel community. The left was just a tool for the intel community and not the other way around. The left thinks they control the FBI, CIA, etc. They do not. The Praetorian Guard in Rome chose and controlled the Emperor just like the intel community chose and controls Biden. Our leftist friends will be jettisoned the second another Emperor appears. My guess is that it will be someone from inside the intel community, much like the Praetorian Guard eventually chose one of it's own as Emperor and decided to eliminate the middle man.

Norpois, 9:55 PM:

Some small part of me is glad that the president is publicly warning Putin not to trust that a tactical nuclear use will stay at that level or deescalate. It actually might – but until it happens, I'd prefer that leaders on every side assume that a couple of kilotons set off in one place will lead to much larger nukes flying in both directions.

"AT A FUNDRAISER" - entirely inappropriate.

Taking the broader view: I don't trust the president and his key advisors not to blunder us into a much graver situation than any of us want. These people are not nearly as smart as they think, and competence (in terms of actual results delivered) has never been a big criterion for their advancement.

Burisma writes Hunter in November of 2015 "with the ultimate purpose to close down any cases against Nikolay in Ukraine."

December 2015, "Son of a bitch," the prosecutor is fired.

You are embarrassing yourself, gadfly. If this kind of evidence existed against Trump, he would be in jail right now and his followers would be saying "good riddance."

JPS said...

Also, I'm far from the first to point this out, but it's amazing to me how much of the center-left has adopted an Inshallah attitude toward World War Three – and how many people on Twitter seem to think that, if push comes to shove, we can destroy Russia's nuclear arsenal without a lot of it being sent our way. Or that most of their nukes are probably duds anyway.

They seriously seem to think that a persuasive-sounding argument supersedes physical reality.

gadfly needs to get back on his medication. Believing in the Russia hoax is surely a sign of severe mental problems. Either that or stupidity, like Inga.

Narr said...

IMHO any use of a nuke--large or small, 'tactical and targeted' or city-destroying--crosses a threshold where fine distinctions aren't made and primal fear takes over. Even one such use clears the board for all kinds of other uglies, and will be a disaster. The recent order of anti-radiation drugs anticipates something, perhaps a major strike, perhaps some dirty bombings.

Kunstler et. al. are speculating about a November Surprise, especially if the Red Wave materializes--not the cancellation or delay of the midterms but a completely new twist: drag the count and certification processes out so long that even by Christmas people aren't sure what the numbers are.

IOW, turn the heat up and provoke the insurrectionary sentiment they need to crack down completely.

I'm not saying it's a good plan, but the theory is plausible and the Party of Chaos (a popular front for the Organs, as others have noted) has nowhere to go but all in, by their own reckless feckless gyrations.

Nothing would surprise me, anymore.

Shhh.Shhh Hush, now. The people you voted for and admire are busy plotting a nuclear war. If you hadn't had your head up your a** you'd know that.

Yes, let’s not worry about nuclear war just because we started a civil war a few hundred miles from Moscow, silly fear!

Nope, that was you Democrat. Aside from Iraq and Afghanistan, I don't think the US has been in a war this century that was not started by a Democrat.
