Why would the congress vote 93-7 to declare the US mainland a war zone? Easy when you know the answer. They have a plan to go to a nuclear confrontation with Iran, which means Pakistan, Afghanistan and no telling who else.
That will immediately make every Iranian-American, Paki-American, Afghan-American, Iraqi-American and everyone else who isn't a WASP, including American Indians and Hispanics, 'enemy combatants'. I think the FEMA Prison Camp conspiracy theory is bunkum – but if it ain't, this is what they are for. I thought the TSA roadblocks on highways and checks in train stations and bus stops were ridiculous – but not if they are for a specific reason. I thought militarizing the police was counterproductive – but that depends on what they are training for.
I tossed my breakfast when the revelation hit. And there are no adults in charge to tell them “NO”.
The President is coming out here for a couple of weeks starting December 17. But it's not a 'vacation'. It's to set up the next Senators from Hawaii and get the Pacific White House organized. Look at a world map. What's the safest place in the world? Hawaii. We have the Pacific fleet here, the Pacific missile test range, A bunch of atomic submarines and the Marine Corps. If I'm the President, I know where I'm safe.
We also have a couple of daydream believers who call the military establishment's upgrades to Hawaii 'rubbish' without knowing the big picture. These are the same people who want to give Hawaii back to the 6,000 Hawaiians who live on Ni'ihau. It ain't gonna happen and I hope you enjoy your 'enemy combatant' status.
Everyone else really ought to consider arming up and getting out of the market.
90% of success is showing up. Getting the math right is the other 50%.
