This week, we have two men who were so absurd, they got the beginning WWIII off the news. Everybody on the planet was talking about the doctor who got on the United Airlines flight, then got off, then snuck back on, and THEN…he had to be dragged off screaming.
He is now in the hospital with his lawyer, who asked, “So, where was your can of Pepsi?”
Everyone under the sun has an opinion on the matter, but really, the guy acted like a snowflake. Clearly, he has watched too many Chinese Lives Matter programs. The lady in the movie is even more of an idiot.
The good news is now, we ALL know that you can get kicked off any flight at anytime for no reason whatsoever. So what’s new? One time, my husband and I made reservations at a Dierdorfs and Hart Restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and she seated us at a really romantic table and right in the middle of our salads, the waitress asked us to move because a “regular” client wanted our table.
It wasn’t a ‘request.’ They grabbed all our stuff and we had to follow, and yes, they moved us to a less than romantic table. We finished dinner, and never went back.
That restaurant is no longer in business.
And then there’s Shawn Spicer’s grand moment of momentous “Brain FART!” I don’t know what he was smoking before he came out to handle the press, but to say that even HITLER didn’t use chemical weapons made you wonder what in the world you call the gas ovens?
Seriously Shawn. And then he goes on to say that at least Hitler didn’t gas his own people, trying to make Assad to be worse than Hitler.
It is painful to watch: First one foot. Then the other foot. Clearly Shawn needs some sleep.
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week?
Is it the doctor who didn’t want to get off the plane and threw an adult temper tantrum?
Or is it President Trump’s Press Secretary, who either didn’t pay any attention in history class, or John McCain is writing his notes.
And the Award goes to…………….(drum roll)
HILLARY CLINTON! For getting so desperate for attention she is modeling high heel pumps because they were named after her.
Wait…there’s that Pepsi commercial….this IS getting complicated.
While we are listening to half the people of the world argue about who really used the WND’s in Syria…this little piece of history can give us all some thought:
My friend Ruth, who was 16 when Hitler was in power, and lived in Germany, remembers Hitler. And to this day, she still believes that Hitler didn’t stage this little piece of history: But…here’s a passages from the book “You Said What? Lies and Propaganda throughout History” You can decide…if Ruth is right in her beliefs.
“It was the Germans who Killed all those Polish Officers” —Joseph Stalin
On September 1, 1939 Adolf Hitler’s Nazi government and Joseph Stalin’s Communist regime set aside their intrinsic differences to sign one of the most cynical and ruthless treaties in modern history. The pact went into effect on August 23 and guaranteed that neither dictatorship would interfere with the other as they went about reclaiming ancestral lands that had been granted to Poland at the end of WWI.
The Nazis agreed that Stalin could have a free hand moving his armies into the Baltic states of Latvia. Lithuania and Estonia, despite the fact that these small countries included a significant population of Germanic and Prussian descent. Germany was poised to devour western Poland like a wolf ready to gulp down a rabbit. His troops already surrounded Poland on three sides.
But Hitler intended it to gain at least a perfunctorily plausible reason to clam that his well planned long sought and utterly aggressive invasion of Poland was at heart merely a simple act of self-defense.
Heinrich Himmler SS, ordered thirteen prisoners moved from a concentration camp in eastern Germany at Oranienburg to a schoolhouse near the Polish frontier. Then he got polish uniforms and hatched “Operation Canned Goods.” They were told to put on the uniform and were killed by lethal injection. All but one was killed. The bodies were then taken to the woods twelve miles from the Polish border. There the dead men were shot, raked by rifle and automatic weapons fire to simulate the wounds of actual combat. The bodies were then gruesomely posed some draped over tree limbs or tangled in fences to make it look as though they had died in action. ‘
German police came, and the headline, “Poland has staged an invasion of Germany” went out all over the world, complete with pictures.
Then, the remaining prisoner was hustled to the nearby town of Gleiwitz by a small squad of SS men. They took over a radio station, and one of the SS men who spoke Polish, urged all who felt loyalty to Poland to rise up and help overthrow the Nazi dictatorship. There followed a scuffle that would have done any radio drama director proud. Shouts and cries were hears against the background of further violence. A volley of gunfire erupted. All of this went out over the microphone. They shot him and left him in the studio.
And this is how wars begin. Ruth, like most Germans who lived under Hitler, believed in her country. She still finds it hard to believe that Hitler would have lied to his own people. It’s not that she is evil, just naïve, and proud of her own people, who she says, are very hardworking, and loved their country.
And Nobody Wonders…World War II was started with staged acts. Will World War III start much the same way?
