The worth-more-than-a-thousand-words ‘picture’ that shows how low the gaslighters pushing the RUSSIAN! propaganda have sunk

I thought Mr.Lukovich was one of the more talented, level-headed, honest political cartoonists in the msm.

Just something else I was wrong about.

This really made me angry. How stupid do these people think we are? Or is it possible that this guy simply has bats in his belfry?

I am appalled that ‘left’ is getting the credit and/or blame (depending on how yoy view the situation) for pushing this line of bullshit. If someone is truly politically positioned on the ‘left’ side of the D/R Demarcation Line, they’re not pushing for WWIII, and they’re not buying into this line of crap.

I see it different. Japan bombing The Pearl was serious stuff (not that they didn't have their reasons). I think Mr. Luckovich was making a parody on how something that got us into WWII was serious shit. This 'meddling in external affairs' BS is NOT serious shit. Just a bunch of war mongers looking for any excuse to escalate. The comparison is parody, IMO.

@QMS But I wonder how many will think like we do and how many will say, yup, Russia just did a Pearl Harbor... Sigh.

@lizzyh7 of endless woeful memes is a large dosage of humor. Can't take this seriously anymore. Not saying to laugh the dark news away. Lighter is brighter. Sanity deserves some better focus. The one liners that pass for headlines these days crack me up. Denial is more than a river in the M.E.

convention don't you know? Yep. They got Bernie's supporters kicked out of it and made the democrats turn off the lights where his supporters were. And Russia was responsible for the violence at the Nevada caucus too.

They have been meddling in the country going back to when DK was created. The pie fights during the primary on the site was only possible because of Russian bots and most of us that got kicked off the site were also Russian bots.

Governments exist preeminently to maximize the profits, resources and the power of the wealthy

@QMS
The japanese reason for Pearl Harbor was that someone in the American state department (Dean Acheson claimed it was him) defied a diect order from FDR and cut off the imperial navy's fuel supply. I.E. We provoked them.
And this wasn't tthe only time Acheson started a war for his owm reasons.(according to him) He claimed that it was him that convinced deGaulle to return to Viet Nam, saying that the US would pay for it.
Sound familiar? Can you say false flags?

Sorry to say, but there’s every indication that Mike Luckovich is on board the crazy train.

Pearl Harbor was the “Well, they started it” argument used to keep people howling for Japanese men’s, women’s, and children’s blood all the way through to the A-bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

How much Russian blood would satisfy Mike Luckovich and the readers to whom this cartoon will appeal?

We keep being told that they are still meddling in our elections and will increase their attacks when voting starts. The department of homeland security is now in charge of our elections and we know that it tried hacking into some state's voting rolls.

So I guess I'm wondering what will DHS do during the election? Will they make sure that only the right people get elected like those ex military and CIA members?

What do you think is the end game?

@Lily O Lady @Lily O Lady if you are very close to what the real end game is/was. We know that the elites who comprise the New World Order have wanted depopulation for some time. David Rockefeller talked openly about wanting to depopulate the world.

‘Stabilizing the population’ – as Rockefeller called it – actually meant sterilization, vaccinations, encouraging abortions, using food as a weapon, and viewing disease and war as a means of “correction” to stop population growth.

Henry Kissinger is an advocate of depopulation along with many other well known public figures including Prince Phillip of Britain. IMO, it appears that depopulation is and has been a goal of the US government for decades, mostly through foreign policy, but also here within our country itself.

Look no further than Flint, Michigan and many other communities whose water supplies have become severely contaminated by industrial pollution, and yet the US government is doing nothing about this national crisis of clean potable water. The murder of young blacks and other minorities at the hands of cops is another example in which the life of the victim is seen as being less important than the life of the enforcer. These are examples of the systematic use of government to depopulate the US. They come for the most vulnerable first and then it most likely will spread to the population as a whole in future years. No wonder the elite in the US supported the Nazis in WWII.

On a foreign policy level, the United States has been waging wars as a means of depopulation for decades.

Two excellent examples of existing U.S. depopulation policy are, first, the long-term impact on the civilian population from Agent Orange in Vietnam, where the Rockefellers built oil refineries and aluminum plants during the Vietnam War. The second is the permanent contamination of the Middle East and Central Asia with depleted uranium, which, unfortunately, will destroy the genetic future of the populations living in those regions and will also have a global effect already reflected in increases in infant mortality reported in the U.S., Europe, and the UK.

I think what we are witnessing both here in the US and abroad is eugenics on a massive scale. We just do not know it yet.

@gulfgal98 control will have to addressed. I think that the topic is best left to another essay.

My understanding of the oil embargo preceding and precipitating the Japanese war against us, was due to FDR initiating an oil embargo against the entire Japanese nation. Japan invaded China in 1931, cutting off Western businesses from profiting by their Chinese investments. Remember, FDR said he wasn't defeating National Socialism, he was protecting capitalism.

@Alligator Ed I agree with this...but population control is very different from depopulation.

Climate change aside, at some point population control will have to addressed.

at risk of starvation in Yemen. And we’re watching it, allowing it, helping it to happen.

The United Nations estimates that 8.4 million people in Yemen are just "a step away" from famine and that it will be the worst the world has seen in many decades.

Both sides are using food as a weapon of war, but the crisis is caused primarily by a brutal air, land and sea blockade imposed by a Saudi Arabia-led coalition.

— not because of the science, which as a non-expert I can’t judge — but on the basis of, “If humans are causing global warming because of fossil fuels, how come there is zero pressure on, and unquestioning lockstep political support for, the biggest profiteers from fossil fuels on the planet, namely the dictator families of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait and the UAE?”

Our sons and daughters fight wars for these people, commit war crimes for these people, as if we were their mercenaries.

If Exxon and Mobil knew, then what about Aramco?

The Gulf global-warming dictators are orders of magnitude wealthier than people like Trump or the Koch brothers.

The Gulf global-warming dictators don’t just influence the media; they own or control most Arabic-language media and more Western media than one would think. (Any Arabic-language sources they don’t control are likely to be decried as “terrorist” by the West.)

The Gulf global-warming dictators don’t just fund and lobby lawmakers and write laws for them; they either don’t bother with legislatures at all, or create rubber-stamp Potemkin ones whose members know their heads only remain on their shoulders subject to royal whim.

When was the last time activists doxxed and harassed people who work for a global-warming dictator family? Hmmm?

If fossil-fuel-fed global warming really is a threat to human civiization and to all life on the planet, then among the worst real traitors are the Gulf global-warming dictators and all who serve them, profit along with them, or make nice with them — traitors to the planet and the entire human race.

(Edited to add this German op-ed, in a similar vein: What would we think if an “eco-Trump” were breaking taboos in order to stop carbon, force everyone to go green, and save the world?)

@snoopydawg as population culling is their end game I think. I read somewhere a remark about Trump and assassination, can't remember where or what article it was, but my thought process could totally see that as well. Assassinate Trump, Pence takes over, they must declare a "state of emergency" due to all the protests, some of them armed and locked and loaded to find the killer of their hero. While I say martial law I also think it will be a more subtle form of that than what we currently think of so as to keep the American sheep thinking nothing has really changed. Maybe "elections" continue or maybe they just "suspend" those altogether. Set the country at each other's throats, blame Russia for the assassination, and we then maybe progress to just a few tactical nukes to weed out the useless eaters...

These people are sick and I put nothing past them. This system is going to collapse and they know it, I think they're just trying to figure out how to manage it and keep some semblance of normalcy, for which the bar has been moved so far already into stupid land they won't have to work hard for things to appear "normal."

- replace the bombs with internet memes.
- replace the pearl harbor scene with a massive herd of really dumbass sheep grazing on the fields of Facebook.

In related news, Dore just dropped a video on the absurdity of the 'Russians are coming' mania.
