The Sunday Edition .002


Welcome to the Sunday edition for the North Texas Drifter. What we have here are headlines and associated thoughts that occurred over the course of the week presented for your amusement and edification.

-- The biggest news this week is the story about Saudi Arabia being responsible for the attack on 9/11. Nobody wants to talk about it in the light because it validates what the 9/11 Truthers have been saying. Additionally, if we start pulling that string, we are sure to discover guilty parties within the US government. How much did Bush know? How much does Obama know? They know the full story and neither is telling. [Edit: It appears the news cycle has run its course.]

-- I'll bet the powers that be are alarmed Trump is threatening to re-open the 9/11 investigation. He knows what happened. (If he is elected -- and that is a big "if").

-- My neighbor Weldon says US elections are fixed and Hillary Clinton will be the next president. He says count on it and, personally, I agree with him.

-- If they can pull off an operation like 9/11, then by comparison, mass shootings and beheadings in the desert would be relatively simple to arrange. You don't think our government would fool its citizens? Think again.

-- Governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe signs state law allowing 200,000 convicted felons to vote in the November election -- uses racism as the excuse, but it's simply more crooked politics.

-- Radioactive iron in moon rocks collected by astronauts on NASA's Apollo missions suggests that a nearby supernova blasted Earth a few million years ago, according to a new study.

This finding supports the idea that nearby stellar explosions may have influenced life on Earth, including the evolution of humans, the researchers said.

Supernovas are powerful explosions from gigantic dying stars. These outbursts are visible all the way to the edge of the universe, and are bright enough to briefly outshine all of the other stars in their host galaxies.

-- Chelsea Clinton says in interview now that Justice Scalia is gone, they can finally get gun control. The Democrats are coming for your guns based on the series of bogus shootings that have been staged over the past few years.Until then, Hillary says she wants to impose a one thousand dollar a year tax on each gun you have. Does this include air rifles and pointing an index finger? I do not know.

-- Chocolate milk was invented in Ireland.

-- Speaking of Ireland, UFC champ Conor McGregor said he was retiring earlier this week, then said he was kidding, and the UFC canceled his next fight, a multi-million dollar deal, thereby shooting themselves in the foot. The thing is, the UFC is run by Vegas people -- if they don't get their way, then nobody gets to play. Such is the fight game.

-- The official state vegetable of Oklahoma is the watermelon.

-- Overseas tourist agencies are recommending travelers not visit the racist southern portion of the USA because we're all bigots down here and if foreigners come to visit, we usually end up eating them, especially in South Carolina and Mississippi. Also, we don't like to share bathrooms with people other than our own gender. Somehow, that offends some people. Anyhoo, SC and 'ol Miss are being boycotted because they won't open up genderless public restrooms in their states. This is socialism at its finest.

-- Any piano players out there? Go here for an online virtual piano.

-- The pop star known as Prince dies this week and everybody seems to be going crazy over it and giving all sorts of fantastic accolades about the guy. Not much was said about Merle Haggard who died a few days earlier and was certainly a larger star than Prince. An autopsy was performed on Prince, but ironically, not on Judge Scalia.

-- One more bit about the fake war on terror. According to the late Saudi foreign minister Prince Saud al-Faisal, IS was cobbled together in response to the Shia government in Iraq following the US invasion of the country and the execution of Saddam Hussein (who got his start as a CIA operative).

“Daesh is our [Sunni] response to your support for the Da’wa,” the Shia Islamist ruling party of Iraq, al-Faisal told US Secretary of State John Kerry, according to the newspaper.

The FT story, however, ignores the fact the Saudis collaborated with the CIA and Pakistani intelligence to create the progenitor of the Islamic State, the “Afghan Arabs” that would become al-Qaeda. Other factions of the CIA organized and Saudi funded Mujahideen coalesced into another fanatical Wahhabi group, the Taliban.

The Saudis may have funded and supported IS, but they are not responsible for its creation. The Pentagon created a group led by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi that would become IS.

"All the news that's fit to print and some that's not."
