"No-One Would Survive It" | Vladimir Putin with Oliver Stone

There is a way Donald Trump can emerge from the White House a champion instead of a chump even while the latter has been the direction almost assiduously from the start.  That will come in just a moment.

No country on earth would survive should the world’s most powerful nuclear states unleash their atomic weapons, Vladimir Putin has said. His remarks form part of a series of interviews with American film director Oliver Stone.

The question of whether the human race would survive a potential global nuclear war has tormented the minds of generations, and indeed Stone, who wondered if the Russian president believes the US might emerge victorious if such a conflict were to break out.

“In a hot war is the US dominant?” the American director asked the Russian president.

“I don’t think anyone would survive such a conflict,” Putin replied in a short Showtime teaser, a precursor to a documentary titled 'The Putin Interviews' that will be aired next week.

There's not a rational person in the world who believes anyone would survive notwithstanding the duplicitous rubbish we hear constantly from the Pentagon and the mindless provocation from simpletons such as Obama, Clinton, and those in the Senate such as Jason Chaffetz and others of that lowbrow ilk.

Candid interviews of this nature with Putin are getting more frequent given the recent offering from Megyn Kelly in which she graduated to the big league of professional journalism and left the pseudo-feminist riff raff of The Guardian far behind.  Those at The Guardian are beating war drums implicitly in advocating for Comey's equally-duplicitous testimony.

For once I trumped Cadillac Man on news items from television since he had not as yet seen the interview with Megyn Kelly / Vladimir Putin although he was aware she had graduated in some way. Neither of us regarded Kelly as any more than one more of the Fox News bimbos and had no reason to change but she has evolved magnificently.

C.M. did tell me he had listened to Bill O'Reilly criticizing her and, in typical fashion, said he would have been much more aggressive to put Putin on the defensive.  That only shows O'Reilly's amateurism and why he may make a lot of money but he will never get past the second tier when he tries to play puerile games of manipulation and domination.  He might have been a talented journalist but his duplicity and arrogance betrayed him which is to say he betrayed himself.  O'Reilly is just a chump who hustles novels for a living whereas Putin is one of the most powerful people in the world so who is O'Reilly to even try to intimidate him; it would be laughable if it were not so pitiful.

We did come up with one conclusion regarding Trump in which it doesn't matter that much how abusive he is to the internal situation in America and he's shown clearly he will be.  Where Trump can pull an immediate win is if he does have the balls to hold to his campaign pledge to normalize relations with Russia.  Should he have the true strength to withstand the duplicitous onslaught from the Senate and MSM to actually bring an end to the neo Cold War, the crowd will already be starting to prepare the confetti.  Should he also manage to stabilize the Middle East / Afghanistan and bring the soldiers home, people will be ready for ticker tape parades in New York City.

For the trifecta, should Trump be able to stabilize relations with Israel in a rational way which prevents further Israeli imperialism and convinces them for humanity to back out of the Occupied Territories then Trump will be up for the Nobel Peace Prize which was undeservedly awarded to Barack Obama.

In the case of Obama, the hypocrisy was blatant and he did withdraw some troops but he sent the Air Force and drone bombers instead so nothing really changed and he never accomplished more than exacerbating the situation George Bush had already created.

Cadillac Man, there was one item I didn't manage to slip into the flow last night and that was about another precedent to the Afghan conflict.  Bill Clinton had launched an ineffectual strike against al Qaeda in Afghanistan during his administration and nothing much else was said about it, possibly due to the subsequent caterwauling about blow jobs.

There was also one more provocative precedent and that one came in Reagan's term when the US Navy shot down an Iranian civilian Airbus which resulted in a large loss of life.  Coincidentally, that was an example of intelligent American missile systems and it screwed the pooch like a big dawg.

Then 9/11 came during the Bush administration and people screamed, "Why, oh, why did this happen?"

I maintained Trump should have flogged Obama and Clinton publicly for their duplicity and consequent failures but C.M. was more supportive of courtesy between administrations.  However, I specifically do not agree or we might be closer to solving the problem than perpetuating it.

The Rockhouse still holds at a probably vain hope Donald Trump has the cojones to stand up to the CIA-sponsored bullshit from the stooges in the Senate and he accomplishes the three objectives listed above.  The Rockhouse would salute him with pride should he manage to do that and I do not lift the right arm in such a way lightly.  For example, I would never salute a general.  The Pentagon is more adamant about the survivability of a nuclear war than any other source.

Show us some balls, Donald Trump.  When Megyn Kelly and Oliver Stone can pull it together, surely you can.

Ed:  do you seriously think he listens to you?

Nope but you did.
