hippie - WonketteSome little hipster clarinet player from NYU is claiming the Iraq invasion and occupation was all about securing oil supplies for America. Oh and what is that sticking out of Jazzbo Al's tattered raincoat? A worn paperback of Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged," which he actually first read when she was writing it, when he was screwing some gal in Rand's "inner circle" and writing angry letters to the New York Times about how "parasites who persistently avoid either purpose or reason perish as they should." That's right, we're talking about former Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan!

Greenspan is the beloved Fed chairman who presided over the 1987 stock market crash, the early 1990s' recession, the Internet stock bubble and its bloody explosion, and the current housing bubble collapse that will ultimately lead to a Global Depression and the end of modern civilization, which ultimately won't be missed. But under his Objectivist Stewardship of the American Economy over two decades, the richest 5% of the United States became richer while the entire rest of the country slipped deeper into debt-soaked serfdom and the wealthiest one-tenth of one percent all became Multi Billionaires and created a secret parallel America of private-jet airports, pleasure submarines and massive walled fortresses protecting private ski resorts, champion golf courses and miles of "public" coastline.

Well done, Maestro!

(Oh and did you know he wrote/edited Rand's The Objectivist newsletter and was always going on about the Gold Standard? Motherfucker was like the pre-Internet Ron Paul! Until he sold out to the Federal Reserve and the New World Order and Fiat Currency ....)

Anyway, Al's new book says all the democracy/weapons bullshit was just bullshit so we could go seize the Iraqi oil fields and make sure Saddam didn't suddenly start a Powerful Navy and somehow take control of the Gulf and make oil cost $120 a barrel, which is a whole $40 more than it costs, er, today, which itself is quadruple the cost per barrel in, uh, 2003, when they invaded Iraq to control the oil supply.

Also, Greenspan says Bush is an idiot and Cheney won't listen to him and some Administration Official said back before the war that of course it was about oil, but "unfortunately, we can't talk about oil."

The great journalists at the National Enquirer regularly sent advance digital copies of stories about Donald Trump and his political opponents to Michael Cohen, according to a story in the Washington Post, which cited "three people with knowledge of the matter" as sources. Probably Trump was one of them, you know how he is.
