War zones

This is the minor story of the moment at Drudge.

White House reviews military plans against Iran...
'Deploy 120,000 troops'...
SAUDI: OIL PIPELINE ATTACKED BY DRONES...
Mystery shrouds 'sabotage' of tankers...

This is the major story.

CHINA STRIKES BACK
DUMP TREASURIES?
FARMERS FEEL PAIN 
APPLE IN CROSSHAIRS

With the media, it’s hard to tell if it’s World War III, or a day in which there was nothing else about Mueller to beat up. But for me, if a tariff war with China is more newsworthy than a potential hot war in the Middle East, there really isn’t much going on.

AND COME THE MORNING: This is the lead story.

    I see the neo-con lunatics are at it again.

    Not content with losing every war since 1945 they want to add Iran to the list.

    Let’s pray Tulsi Gabbard becomes President and ends this madness

    Reminds me of the day the Arab Spring started and our moronic media had as it’s major story Obama and Gillard throwing a football to each other in the Oval Office.

    Always good to hear classic economists talk about “tariff wars” as if that’s a thing.

    Stocks rose on Tuesday, regaining some of the sharp losses from the previous session, as investors weighed the impact of the escalating trade war between the United States and China.

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 207.06 points to 25,532.05, boosted by gains in Visa and Boeing shares. The 30-stock index also posted its best day since April 12. The S&P 500 advanced 0.8% to 2,834.41 as tech shares outperformed. The Nasdaq Composite climbed 1.1% to end the day at 7,734.49.

    Our ABC in the last night news bulletin featured a story about an “Australian fashion designer” is worried that the US-China “trade war” will have a negative effect on the sales of her fashion designs in the US.
    For fuck sake!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sunnis V Shia – had to happen eventually in our time. Not only do the Iranians & Saudis hate each other – but the showdown is foretold in their “endgame” prophecies.

    Oh well – makes our current showdown elections look pretty tame.

    Sorry – that should have read “endgame” prophecies.

    Last go – “end TIME” prophecies.

    Tariffs working Bigly…..https://www.cnbc.com/2019/05/13/williams-sonoma-ceo-says-it-shifted-operations-ahead-of-tariff-hikes.html

    Other leftist policies are working Bigly in Venezuela too.
    We should celebrate that too at Australia’s Leading Libertarian and Center Right Blog.

    Makes about as much sense as Steve Kates blogging here…
