Jim W. Dean – This was my first time on The Debate with Ambassador Peck, who is not only an old school diplomat but an Army veteran from WWII and Korea who came up through the ranks. His post government career has been almost as long as the former.
Jim W. Dean – Friends, sisters and parents are all smiles during this court hearing as they know that huge political pressure was in play to get their murdering son off the hook.
Jim W. Dean – Trump is playing the spoiler by demanding that EU members fund their own defense costs so they are more likely to feel the political pain of their own voters over bellicose war rhetoric over the make-believe Russian bear aggression plans.
Jim W. Dean – Steven Green blew the doors off the Zionist 1948 War spin story with his seminal “Taking Sides”, published in 1984, based on new access to U.S. archives via the Freedom of Information Act. The material was devastating, but quickly ignored in the press.
Jim W. Dean – So far the Trump administration is stupidly attempting to hang world terrorism on the Iranians, which will go over like a lead balloon. Does Trump want to step into Obama’s shoes of playing the “good terrorist-bad terrorist” game?
Jim W. Dean – VT brings you a memorable double header two hour show with Hacksaw Ridge producer Terry Benedict on the WWII Medal of Honor medic Desmond Doss, followed by an hour with Woody Williams, the last living MoH of Iwo Jima
Jim W. Dean – It’s been hectic first month for the new administration with cracks beginning to show in the overly confident new White house group that is heavy in political operatives but grossly short in the experience and skills for running a large and complex government.
Jim W. Dean – Neither Clinton Bastin nor VT were ever challenged by anyone with standing on any aspect that we have published on the Iran nuclear weapons hoax. Government people knew we would just offer them a two-hour debate, which to date, they have never wanted to do.
Jim W. Dean – Trump has been trained by the Israelis. Just keep making the charge, don’t worry about providing any proof. Israel did it for two decades, but came up empty handed by not having anything solid to kill that first deal. Nobody cared.
Jim W. Dean – The word-dancing begins with the Russian engagement, where the Trump has to play tough to hold Congressional hawks in line, while going through the process of finding safe steps to take.
Jim W. Dean – Trump Tweeting has pushed Mosul virtually out of the news, along with many other things, like Libya, Africa, refugee camps in the EU, MH-17, and all the other unfinished pieces of business.
Jim W. Dean – A declassified CIA analysis from 1986 presented in detail that fracturing Syria along its ethnic and religious divides would likely usher in the emergence of an Islamic State power that would be much worse for the region and for US interests. Why was that analysis ignored?
Jim W. Dean – Trump loses Andrew Puzder as Labor Secretary with his withdrawal today in the face of certain defeat in the first committee vote. Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer put the mark of Cain on him.
Jim W. Dean – General Flynn might be gone, but the question remains, “for how long”? The House Intelligence Committee has opened the door for Flynn to make his own case for the record, which could see this whole thing flip around.
Jim W. Dean – This was a powder puff press conference, or as Shakespeare would have said, “Much ado about nothing”. What was most mentionable was how carefully orchestrated it was to avoid any possible controversy.
Jim W. Dean – To no one’s surprise, the new Trump administration has been conducting a carefully choreographed roll out of “The World that Donald made”, but they haveunfortunately bitten off more than they can chew.
Jim W. Dean – VT has not covered Indonesia much, and Jakarta…never. So when I spotted this excellent article by Mr. Vltchek on NEO, it was time to jump in. The story of a new governor turning a corruption-ridden city around in two years seemed hard to believe.
Jim W. Dean – Trouble has come to Trump paradise in the White house. He seems to be learning that turning the country and the world on its ear is not going to be as much fun as he thought.
Jim W. Dean – If Americans live in a free country, then why does its government, particularly its security agencies, lie to the public continually to cover up the extent of our direct and indirect support of terrorism, where ever it suits some purpose it feels is justifiable?
Jim W. Dean – Al is gone, but the music remains. He worked right up to the end, a labor of love. I regret that I never saw him live, as probably most of us probably have not.
Jim W. Dean – If Trump keeps this “rule by executive order” binge going, he could become the most sued president in history during their first 100 days.
Jim W. Dean – Trump is getting away with murder here, with the help of the stand down of virtually all the world media in ignoring that the long time hoax about Iran’s nuclear weapons program was completely exposed with the G5+1 agreement
Jim W. Dean – These Kiev assassinations are being done to provoke the Donbass Republics into launching an offensive. That they will not do, wisely preferring to save the lives of their soldiers and military strength.
Jim W. Dean – President Tweet continues his chaotic role as head of state. If there was anyone who still thinks that Trump valued a stable and clear foreign policy they have been in a coma for the last few weeks.
Jim W. Dean – What America has to do now is ask the 55% who had no problem with the Trump ban why they don’t care about Constitutional protections from abuse of Presidential power. Are they so stupid that they don’t know there is quite a vetting process already in place?
Jim W. Dean – The Jihadis cleared out of Qabasin and Bzaah to tighten their lines around al-Bab. This makes them more compact as bombing targets, but then there are always those human shields to use inside the city, a routine tactic for them.
Jim W. Dean – The routine testing of Iran’s defense systems is not only spun as proof of “hostile intent”, but we see such tests might even be invented by the U.S. as part of its new Iran boogeyman hoax on the American people; this is a form of “fake government” and “fake news” working as partners.
Jim W. Dean – It saddens me to see U.S. spokespersons reaching into the Joseph Goebbels bag of tricks of, “If you are going to tell a lie, make it a big one as they are easier to get over on the public.
Jim W. Dean – This having Intel agencies making reports of influencing elections is getting entertaining, as they all do it when and where they want, for whatever reasons they deem necessary.
Jim W. Dean – I had been waiting for Trump to pick his Iran club back up, but must say I was surprised with this “Iran is the biggest exporter of terror” silliness. The Donald was working for Israel on this one, not the American people.
