According to U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, it is an open and shut case: Iran is responsible for the latest attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf. And that is setting the stage for the Trump addministration’s long-promised retaliation on Iran, if so provoked. Some U.S. media are now at least mentioning that perhaps Iran did not do it, implying that it might be a false-flag attack that America needs as a premise to attack Iran. But the U.S. propaganda machine is fully engaged in demonizing the second-largest nation in the mid-east. So, are we headed toward another strategic disaster in that region of the world? Emma Vigeland of Rebel HQ News thinks so. You’ll hear the tail end of her report, followed by the latest discussion with On-Target’s Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:
Polls show that increasing numbers of voters are warming to the idea of “Socialism” if that means they get their fair-share of what the rich now have almost exclusively. And that means that pesidential condenders like Barnie Sanders and others who endorse “Socialism” will gain support in their bids for the highest office in the land. That’s the topic of today’s discussion between On-Target’s Larry Sparano and Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York. Their exchange follows a report on the growing support of “Socialism” by David Dole of the National Rational News Network:
Trump’s statement that he’d not allow CIA spies to infiltrate the government of North Korea’s Kim Jong Uh is causing a new round of hysteria among media figures who should know better. The outrage follows reports that Kim executed his half-brother because of such spying. Critic says Trump should condeming Kim’s action, instead of re-assuring him. In an interview with Trump-bashing author Michael Wolff , MSNBC’s Ari Melber discussed possible ways to thwart what they say are Trump’s continuing distortions and lies about just about everything. But On-Target’s Larry Sparano says their cure could be worse than the disease. Here’s Larry in conversation with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:
19 candidates, not including Joe Biden swarmed through Iowa this past weekend, looking for support among voters who will cast ballots for President in the Iowa caucus –that’s the first-in-the-nation selection of preference for president, and it takes place even before New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary. So, support there is important for any person who wants to become the next Commander-in-Chief. But polls show that support for Biden in slipping among Iowa voters, down some five to ten percent. And the same slippage is being seen nationally. And most surprising, perhaps, are polls showing that the most important attribute voters are seeking in a candidate is someone who can beat Trump. They consider that more important than a candidate that shares their values. And at this point at least, the perception among voters is that Biden is that candidate. But will he remain the best bet as we move toward the 2020 presidential election? That’s what On-Target’s Larry Sparano discussed today with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:
Progressive-Liberal Podcaster David Pakman says the reason Hillary lost to Trump is because those who voted for Trump are dumb, too dumb to know how bad Trump is, and too dumb to know how much Progressives could improve the country under another Clinton administration. But On-Target’s Larry Sparano says it is Pakman who is the dumbest for not realizing what really drove voters to Trump. Before you hear Larry’s opinion during his latest segment with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York, you can listen to “Smart Guy” Pakman trying to convince listeners how dumb Trump supporters are.
A growing number of Trump critics say there is no longer any good reason not to impeach the president of the United States. Columnist Mehdi Hasan of The Intercept podcast points to several arguments against impreachment that he says don’t hold water. Among them, the argument that impeachment would generate sympathy for Trump, and why even bother, since there are not enough votes in the Senate to convict. He cites how the public was largely sympathetic to Nixon when Democrats of that time first raised prospects for impeachment. He say the public turned against the president as more was revealed about Nixon’s abuses of power. Certain that he would be impeached and removed from office, Nixon resigned in August of 1974. On-Target’s Larry Sparano argues that much of the Nixon dynamic does not apply to Trump –yet. Here’s Larry in conversation with Kent Garrett of WIOX Radio New York:
