This week, as things so clearly head toward a climax on so many fronts, there’s even more smoke than usual.

Although some of the distraction is at least educational, such as what has happened in Israel, and even the furor surrounding the “hospital bombing,” some of which might even be true. But there’s so much smoke around that fire that even the 80/20 Rule is obscured.

But it makes the case that to much of ‘the world’ the Truth doesn’t matter. The Big Lie is already enough to stoke the quest for a world war intended to go nuclear.

While the US is invaded EVERY day by forces which outnumbered those allowed to cross a nominally better-defended, but not when it mattered, border in Israel.

The lesson has been a matter of life and death. But now it’s a starting bell, too.
