WARMONGERING IRONY …
|| By FITSNEWS || Prepare to get dizzy … okay?
First, the 30,000-foot view: The 2016 presidential campaign is taking place against a backdrop of heightened support for U.S. military invention (and the ever-escalating price tag that goes with, um, “national defense“). Sure it was all the result of some relentless (and ongoing) scaremongering, but whatever … the bottom line is America (especially early-voting South Carolina) is in a tizzy.
Don’t believe us? Read this story.
Things have gotten so crazy that even non-interventionist Rand Paul has become something of a warmonger (although he doesn’t like getting called out for it).
Against this broader backdrop, though, is a general acknowledgment that the once-concluded – now rebooted – Iraq War was sold to the American public via a pack of lies. And that this pack of lies – spoon fed by former U.S. president George W. Bush – will hurt the presidential ambitions of former Florida governor Jeb Bush.
Never mind the real problem …
Anyway, we’ve long maintained the most compelling indictment of America’s last “rush to war” – and the costly quagmire it created – was a skit performed by comedian David Chappelle for Comedy Central. We’re written about “Black Bush” on several occasions (HERE and HERE) but the clip bears re-watching …

What is Jeb Bush’s view on his brother’s war? Would he have invaded Iraq, too?
“I would have and so would have Hillary Clinton, just to remind everybody,” Bush recently told Megyn Kelly of Fox News. “And so would almost everybody that was confronted with the intelligence they got.”
Of course Bush acknowledges the intelligence was “faulty.”
“In retrospect the intelligence that everybody saw – that the world saw, not just the United States – was faulty,” he told Kelly. “And in retrospect, once we invaded and took out Saddam Hussein, we didn’t focus on security first, and the Iraqis in this incredibly insecure environment turned on the United States military because there was no security for themselves and their families.”
But Bush still says he would have invaded ..
“News flash to the world, if they’re trying to find places where there’s big space between me and my brother, this might not be one of those,” he told Kelly.
Wow … talk about an interesting “strategery.”
America’s “War on Terror” – initiated by George W. Bush and pursued by Barack Obama – cost American taxpayers between $4-6 trillion. It also cost thousands of American lives – yet failed to make our nation safer.
Hence the War on Terror II …
Of course to be fair to Bush, his “if at first you fail, throw more money at it” approach to warmongering fits the broader “Republican” view of government championed by his brother.
Meaning he’s nothing if not consistent …
What a blessing it will be when the US’s fiscal house of cards finally comes crashing down.
The the overseas wars will finally stop and then we’ll get to see if Jade Helm was really about the oppression of civil uprisings or not.
No one likes a bully outside of his friends, & even his friends don’t like him enough to put their skin on the line for him. The US has become a caricature of an evil empire/bully.
I love it when “patriots” revel in the concept of USA collapse. kind of like the old Vietnam burn the village to save it thinking. Anarchists live. Tin foil is becoming in short supply around here And in Texas.
Yeah. Karl Rove’s meat puppet has no clue about how to fix the economy that his daddy screwed up … And Obama, too. (Where is the white/black face “comedy” central take on that?)
The republicrats still don’t get it. “It’s the economy, stupid.” We can’t even begin to build more war toys without it.
Jeb is sinking almost as fast as Hillary, because of his Nut-job, liberal-tarian-like stances…
I bet Jeb’s polled and found that most Americans want a president who will STAND UP for their country…especially after 8 years of Obama and FITS-types siding w/ Brutal Sharia terrorists…
Get used to it FITS…if any candidate is going to win the White House…he/she will have to take the issues and Slap the S#!t out of you, the media and the Democrat Party, with them…
You stand for everything the people hate, and are sick of…it’s why Ravenel CRASHED under your tutelage…He should be PI$$#d w/ you…same w/ Mace and Tom Ervin…
FITS is not the Grandfather of Candidates…he is the GRAVEYARD of candidates…LMAO…
And Jeb is figuring that out…because he is desperate to save his campaign…
“WAR IS PEACE,” “FREEDOM IS SLAVERY,” “IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.”
He sounded tangled and twisted last night…on everything from education to immigration.Kelly did a number on him.Great job.
I appreciate his faith however at times I thought it was Obama talking about policy.A great gov but he has become much too liberal for America.
“Get used to it FITS…if any candidate is going to win the White House…he/she will have to take the issues and Slap the S#!t out of you, the media and the Democrat Party, with them…”
Here ya go again with your dogmatic bullshit…tell us more about what (or what didn’t) happened in ’12. Like ths:
“If Newt is the GOP Nominee (whoever gets it) is the next president…”
I can tell ya what has happened since Muslim Obama was elected in 2008:
Control of senate…+11 seats
Control of house….+75 seats
1500 + seats in state legislatures….
And no White House…’cause y’all are kooks!
Republicans have won 5 out of the last 9 Presidential elections.
Soon it’ll 5 out of the 10 presidential elections…
Really. Because the Dems have won 4 of the last 6 – and the last two – by huge wipe-out margins in the electoral college. But hey, Abe Lincoln won the Civil War too? And we need more bayonets and horses – damn it!!!
Obama destroyed the Democrat Party.Your ‘contact’ at the Pakistan Embassy didn’t tell you that?LMAO!!!
He retired. Now rakes in bigger bucks as a contractor. But I will tell you what he said in 2009. They were sure he was in Pakistan. They had no doubt about that. What they couldn’t tell was if Pakistan was protecting him, or just didn’t know where he was. But they were convinced he was there. The other thing they had wrong at first was where. They thought he was in the far western part of Pakistan near the border. Intel had placed him in and around that area multiple times through 2006. If he wasn’t there, they surmised he was in Islamabad itself, but most of that information was not reliable.
Speaking of Abe Lincoln and the Civil War Mr.Fairy Tale…the Republicans control a majority of state legislatures for the FIRST time since RECONSTRUCTION…post Civil War socialist.
If you want to call it a tie, each won 7 of the last 14. Or the GOP won 9 of the last 16. Or the DEMs won 12 of the last 21. I mean we could go on all day. Bottom line, Dems won 2 of the last two. But I don’t think the GOP will nominate a ditz-head VP candidate this time like in 2008, or a candidate that the VP nominee calls “Stinky” like they did in 2012. So it should be a tight one.
Things have changed.Obama destroyed the Democrat Party.America looks at them as the party of appeasement, perversion and that they can be trusted to protect our communities.
That would explain when they have the generic poll the Dems and GOP poll in a tie?
LMAO!!! You know that means the Republicans are +10 then.Just like the mid terms.Just like Israel.Just like GB. Media and MOST pollsters skew their polls for liberals.
Like those 2012 polls with Romney winning?
Never saw those polls.Romney would have won if Christians hadn’t stayed home.
Interesting article today, % of Americans who identify themselves as Christain has fallen from 78% in 2000 to 70% today, with the lartest collapse being in the younger demographics. Might want to rethink that amnesty stance, since most Hispanics are Christain.
I was 100% RIGHT about what Obama was doing to our country (and you were lying through your F*#king teeth it turns out)…
Is that what you mean about tell us more about WHAT HAPPENED…???…Dumb@$$…
Jeb isn’t sinking. He’s tied with Walker Dairyland Ranger in IA and NH. And Jeb hasn’t even started spending money, or announced. It’s Jeb versus Hillary – big government RINO or Grandma – take your pick buddy.
Jeb is not even running.He won’t announce. The ‘internals’ are showing him as not winning in 2016.He is a ‘patriot’ and won’t run.
You mean John Boehner’s press guy quit to go work for a guy who’s not going to run? His PAC is about to hit the $100 million mark, but all for nothing because he’s not going to run? Please.
My inside sources say he will NOT run.
I’ve already schooled you @$$ on polls 1.5 years out…Dumb@$$…
Well, better school yourself on money in politics there Tango.
Are you ‘vicupstate’? He was 0-14 in 2014 mid terms, including Fitzgerald over Kasich in Ohio and Brownback being defeated in Kansas.
You as dumb as him?
Hah! I’d forgotten that the “Hollah-Hollah-Hollah” guy was in that, as “Some Black Dude.”
Yeah, Jeb’s got some ‘splainin’ to do, all right. Even Laura Ingram is calling him out over his tortured stance on Iraq and his big brother’s tainted legacy.
When Obama is gone…the Democrat Party will have A LOT of ‘Spainin to do…Michelle (see Tuskegee Hate Speech) is already setting up a RACISM defense once all the mess of the Obama disaster is uncovered…
That’s what you have to face…it could kill your party for the next decade or more…
‘your’ party…Buz is in EVERY party if you his bizzare ‘book’ of works. Lifelong very liberal Democrat,Tea Party,Green Party…you name it and Buz has tried to find a home in some political cesspool.
Stop trying to be me Buz.You can’t compete with the genius of me and GT.Always lying about being a “lifelong Democrat”
You ought to see Boz in a dress.So cute.We put on Donnie and Marie.I get out the box Franzia and my box opens wide up.
Flippy pogo’s Sibylism is metastasizing to an alarming degree.
Maybe Sibyl isn’t the right name for it.
More like “When Rabbit Howls.”
You pulled the same bullshit on the SNOB…and why it no longer exists.Go play with somebody else.I ain’t interested….
You were despised by every person who posted on The SNOB. Even those you now praise as “successful businessmen” and “respected local leaders.” YOU were the first to accuse them of being a bunch of drunks, driving drunk, etc. Even accused one commenter of being a child molester who abused his own daughter.
You mocked another one for disclosing his depression and a suicide attempt. You are a loathsome, reprehensible troll. Nothing but trouble. Hope you get rolled next time you visit Yellow Springs — IF you’ve ever really been there. Beautiful town, with a lot of very cool people in it. I can see you not fitting in very well at all.
LMAO!!! Liar…hey go FALSELY accuse the mayor of drunk driving AGAIN…or how about a repeat performance of you dressed like the Big Lebowski…showing up at a city council meeting and demanding he resign…helped get TSN sued? Now after Fits?
You are the town clown.A psychotic version of a drunk Otis Campbell in Mayberry,NC. .Go the fuck away.
You and GT have been trying to make the case that this blog will shut down the way that The SNOB did, all based on a total misunderstanding of the meaning of the Kelley verdict and whether or not it will stand the appeals process. Trying to strike fear in Will’s heart over the threatened Bingham suit, now. Same old smoke and mirrors, song and dance, one trick dog and pony show.
Which one is the dog, and who does it wag? Which one is the pony, and who rides it?
I haven’t made the case for ANYTHING shutting down.I don’t want to see Will sued or for Fits to shut down.Unlike you I don’t wish harm on others and their families.
You are the one with your ‘plant’ SYNTwist that began deleting accounts and emails about the time of the Fits article on a possible civil suit.
Others on here were suspicious about that.Go away Boz.You are starting to bother me.
I’m sure you think your dialog with your many Sibyl identities is amusing, pogo. But most on here know that message did not come from the real SynTwist. She’s off of Disqus now, and Facebook as well.
Boz ,somebody (YOU)? has hijacked my name all morning.Fuck you.Grow up you fucking weirdo.
I have no interest in discussing anything with you.
You can’t really “hijack” a fake name. Or effectively sue one. Even “Elmer Fudd” was never found guilty. They had only a circumstantial case that it was him. Dropped charges, once the allegation had helped to smear him. But in your case, you have a long history of multiple screen IDs, sometimes arguing with each other. That’s what killed The SNOB, no matter how much you and others want to blame that on me.
You are a pussy at trying to be the real me. Buz is a masturbating pot-head who sells sex toys and tries to hypnotize women to turn them pervert like him, and you never even mention that. Turn in your pogo card!
This my dear FITSNews friends is what happens when you close the State Mental Hospital.
FITS is a trangulator, too.
They try to ingratiate themselves to any issue-de-jour – to be liked – and end up exposing themselves as hypocrites and liars…
Kind of like a guy who knows nothing about sports that jumps on the Patriots bandwagon b/c they think it’s a political issue? Ain’t that something. And ironic you used the word “liar.” Throw in cheater and murderer, and you have today’s New England Patriots.
LMAO…you are as desperate as you are stupid…
Ha! Yet, you take a young woman’s name for your FaceBook page (Emily Peterkin) and a man named T. Lawrence from Irmo for your blog? STFU, you lying piece of shit.
Boz…wouldn’t it be more appropriate to quit lying…and contradicting your own lies from day to day…instead of attacking me…
If I’ve had to use a different name, it’s only because your NAZI-@$$ has banned me under my real name because I told truth and presented reality…2 things liberals fear…LMAO…
As I remember the real Ms. Peterkin came over and posted a couple of times. She was not very happy with you. I see that you STILL haven’t had the decency to delete the fake profile yet.
Boz, You’re so textbook corrupt liberal…
Instead of worrying about the content and truth presented by people much smarter and much more honest, than you…you try to take out the author of the truth and reality that you are too stupid, or too coward, to face…
Why not just quit being a liar..and you would not have to worry about what others say…and trying to silence them…
Looks like you’re the one doing the lying.
Ahahaha! Only a low-life piece of shit would do that. Tango, the lying ass bitch.
Boz says he works for/with the mayor’s wife? With friends like this who needs enemies?
You got called out and bitch slapped. Take someone’s real name and dump all over it. You should have gotten sued or your ass kicked. Good thng some people don’t know your real name, huh? Total pussy.
Expressing your personal hatred for one who defeats you intellectually…on a political website…is a sign of failure and weakness on your part…is it not??…LMAO…

Only contributor I know that lives with ‘mamma’-per Boz himself-is Boz himself.
Apparently has not held a regular job for years…yet tells The Sun News he lives in Murrells Inlet AND rents a ‘place’ in Myrtle Beach?
Now why in the fuck would you say you live with ‘mamma’ and at the same time rent a place in Myrtle Beach?
Maybe the place in MB had a better ‘dishwasher’? LMAO…
Martin, who lives in the Horry County part of Murrells Inlet and rents a place to live in Myrtle Beach part of the year…

I am going to email you some ‘stuff’ since they are threatening you. Will be traveling next couple of weeks -actually in SC part of my trip…won’t be on much…keep up the fight for TRUTH…
This is what he did on TSN.What a shame.Had a good discussion going on this thread.Appointments all day.Have good one GT.
If you can’t triangulate, they you can’t locate, and you can’t navigate. With out triangulation you are lost on tides or in the woods.
When you triangulate, you end up strangulating…yourself…(see Ravenel – see Tom Ervin)…
Don’t tease us w/ tat Bush photo. What I would not give to have a president, like Bush, who is not a bigot…and who loves his country…
Bush looks GREAT compared to the Disaster Obama is…and it’s not smart on your part to remind everyone…. Considering FITS’ political slant…
Interesting Fits used Dave Chappell. Drive thru Yellow Springs, Ohio at different times of the year and you will that fucking pot head smoking dope on the street corner.
I hate it when the media uses racist dope heads to denigrate our military.
Perhaps Jeb should consider that reminding the American voters of G. W. may not be the ticket to the White House?
Hillary and Kerry were both on board to fight Iraq till the war was going on and it became politically expedient to be against it. Then the “WMDs” just evaporated from the news media. Most were flushed down the Euphrates river and taken to the Bacau valley in Syria. Where did the nerve gas come from that Asad used on his own people ?? I’m not saying I support Jeb. Love George but not so much Jeb or Daddy Bush. But the Iraq war was and still is part of the war on terror. Obummer only gave back what our military fought and died for. I just hope we don’t have to do it again to fix his mistake.
Correct on all fronts Rogue.No WMD’s but Hussein used them on the Kurds. W. was is Godly man that loves this country.He took the fight to them.We were winning that fight until Muslim Obama gave those gains away to install the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Queda in the middle east.
Ask Israel ,Egypt and Saudi Arabia what they think of Obama.
Do you idiots really believe that crap? First, the WMD’s used on the Kurds came from us. Second, everyone knew removing Saddam would create a power vacuum, which is why Georgie the 1st didn’t take out Saddam. And Obama gets crap cause he has to clean up that mess?!?!? Basically Georgie part deux invaded for the oil and money for Haliburton, left a mess, and we had to pay for it with 2,000+ lives and $4 trillion. Y’all are so stupid and ignorant I am surprised you know how to type.
lol…he gassed his own people…Hussein…
Muslim Obama incited the overthrow of Mubarack and installed the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt…they decided they wanted NONE of that…Obama got rid of Gaddafi and installed Al Queda and ISIS..Yemen ditto…Obama even scares the shit out of Saudi arabia…
Obama said the greatest sound he ever heard was the Islamic morning prayer and why he an appeaser to these radicals…
No, he said the greatest sound he ever heard was Romney crying, and Sarah Palin answering interview questions with Kati Couric.
hmmm…I thought it was white businesses burning and Michelle calling America evil and racist…
Hey, side note. Since I was away on R&R – did Wil ever run anything on the jobs numbers?
Yes.29% of those on unemployment have been drawing for 27 weeks or longer. Labor participation rate is lowest in 50 years.
Unemployment applications at 20 year low. Unemployment rate down again.
Total net jobs created during 8 years of Bush 1,281,000
Total net jobs created during 1st 6 years of Obama 7,354,000
Dang, thems good numbers.
Slowly pull your head out of your ass and stick it back in the sand. Don’t damage your ears. LOL
Really, which part of what I said wasn’t true? I know facts aren’t your strong suit, but try coming with some. Really. Try.
“beck in the sand”
Freudian slippage is SO entertaining!
Yes they believe that crap. Halliburton made hundreds of billions of dollars in war profit, and then moved their headquarters to Dubai, so they would not have to pay taxes on the money we paid them or disclose exactly how much money they made on the back of the US Taxpayer on no bid contracts.
Remember when we were told by the Bush Adm. that Iraq would pay for the war with oil money, and suddenly that promise just disappeared. Halliburton put the kibosh on that, when they realized the Iraq would have no money to pay them to rebuild the oil wells, we blew up. Just another source of revenue source courtesy of the US taxpayer.
Faulty intelligence. Right. They ignored plenty of intelligence they did not want to hear.
Did you ever think you would see Israel, Saudi Aribia and Egypt on the same side? A vacuum in world leadership creates some strange bed fellows.
It sure does.Nobody trusts the devil.
Rand Paul has to deal with this…I remember his papa backing Cindy Sheehan after she made comments claiming the Iraqi terrorists are “freedom fighters”:
the bushes believe americans admire firmness and decisiveness above all, even above being right. they could be correct in this belief. i think many if not most south carolina voters place ‘decisiveness’ above ‘ability to change course based on new and contradictory evidence’.
