From the Bunker

Greetings, Folks.

Welcome to the opening post of my syndicated columns.

Cliff Harrison: Syndicated Columns is the startup flagship General column. It incorporates a series of subcolumns which in themselves may one day be their own columns, or maybe not, or as an independent column, syndicated or maybe not.

I know it sounds silly and corny but let me explain it in the simple way Mike Royko might have. Or maybe his alter-ego, Slats. That’s Slats Grobnik for you newbies first discovering old-time goodness. And by the Joe, you gonna hear a lot about the olden days in these here columns and subcolumns.

I have an alter ego, too. A few of them. And I have a few imaginary friends, as well. But not this evening.

I think I just invented a new word, subcolumn(s).

So, what is it? WTF am I talking about?

Every time I think I invented something new for the world and then I do a little research, then I find hundreds of people already invented it hundreds of years ago.

Somewhere buried in my manuscript slush pile I mention that if one person conceives an idea, no matter how unique, sooner or later other people will conceive an identical or similar idea.

I will be talking about a lot of things in a lot of columns and wearing out the keys of my new keyboard until I can get a fancy one like James Rollins bought himself.

It is pretty fancy and pretty expensive, like almost $200, but I doubt the keys will wear out. Me? I’ve been typing for decades, probably long before some of you were born, maybe even before your mothers were born. But then out of memory, I didn’t need to see the letters on the keys of the keyboard because I knew them by heart.

Unlike cell phones, telephones, and calculators the pinkhair designers haven’t messed up the position of keyboard keys far as I know.

Anyway, I sidetracked myself, so to keep this under my 500-word goal, let me get to the point. For a while anyway, I will be using this “general column” to feature “subcolumns.”

The subcolumns are like columns on training wheels. They haven’t yet reached the status of being independent and free or otherwise on their own. They can’t fly solo because they have not yet earned their flying wings. And they certainly can’t soar like an eagle soaring because they haven’t yet earned the respect from their reading audience.

So, they temporarily or maybe permanently work under the general column of this one, Cliff Harrison Syndicated Columns.

From the Bunker will probably earn more haters than lovers. That is okay. Columnists do what columnists do and that is exposing stuff. Like people. When you expose stuff you get people dog gone mad at you, so they spit and threaten and sometimes carry through on their threats, especially if the columnist lives in Russia, or China, or say, the USA.

Columnists get more hate mail, more death threats than most politicians. Look it up.

More than a decade ago, I received a lot of death threats from sources claiming to be connected with a mafia punk I wrote about a lot in my then syndicated columns.

I deleted my friends and family lists, unfollowed all my friends and family on social media, and disconnected completely.

I wound up getting kicked between the legs by both sides. I did it, the disconnection, to protect them.

I take threads seriously. I take all threats seriously.

I will elaborate on those thoughts in another post, but for now, let us talk about the reason I decided to convert blog into columns and subcolumns.

The reason I decided, after long thinking, of restarting syndicated columns and adding subcolumns to that list is because as I told you a few months ago I was rebranding, reorganizing my network media.

I have over 200 legitimate blogs and websites. Some pen named. Some coverts. Some anonymous. Some private. Some collectively huge with what I have had with well over a million or many million follows, viewers or visitors. Some with almost none.

Monetizing each blog or website gets expensive. It collectively drains profit.

Having one or two or three or four flagship blogs or websites that act like the dashboard of one, controlling multiple blogs or the mother ship of blogging or as the aircraft carrier of the strike force or strike group can enhance exposure while streamlining energy and focus.

Instead of working 200-plus individual blogs in a network media without the labor force to help along and to independently supervise and produce, one individual can regroup them into a handful of blogs with the same number of columns as there were blogs, syndicated columns or not, even self-syndicated, as many of mine are or will be.

One individual, a handful of blogs, and multiple columns be like one war admiral commanding a powerful and elite super-class carrier strike force with thousands of warplanes, hundreds of battleships, and warships and well, you get the point.

Many ideas, many subjects can be presented without confusion or duress to the reading audience.

Also, that same principle is spread across many network medias and devices.

On social media with multiple outlets and accounts, columns may be posted daily. Even hourly as some do.

Blogs can be and often are posted weekly or more often, eBooks monthly, more or less.

When Jeff Bezos has a brain tantrum after reading about Mark Zuckerberg and his brain tantrum who is in bed with the Google boys while they scheme how to enslave their users and Jack Dorsey of Twitter fame decided to ban the most powerful man on the planet Earth, the U.S. President, and then all conspire to dominate and control the people. That is tyranny gone wild. It is tyranny out of control. it is the billionaires controlling the masses.

We are a government of the people, by the people, for the people. We the People govern ourselves. We are not a people of dictators who govern us. We are not slaves to billionaires or tyranny.

The columnist, in fact, nearly all writers or authors, protect us from eternal slavery by generating, ideas, thoughts and self-reflection which becomes movements to take down those tyrants, not by guns and violence and vicious criminal acts, but by the swords of the word. Un-huh! The War of Words!

Guess what? The columnists not only survives chaos and attacks of demonic proportion, but destroys the billionaire tyrants and causes their self-destruction, their downfall to accelerate and fast.

Columnists used to cause presidents to have nightmares and sleepless night.

Columnist used to be respectable and appreciated and followed and if I can use the word movement, created many.

They make changes in the world others are afraid to mention or tackle.

Okay, so I’m long-winded, that’s me. The column and the subcolumn will not replace the blogs but reduce their frequency.

Until each column becomes independent, and its training wheels are removed, they will be launched here, under Cliff Harrison Syndicated Columns. From there we will continue to expand. Stay tuned and learn more. And always remember that what you read is food for thought. And independent thought is what keeps you free so no man may make you his slave.

Until we meet again, have a good night, friend, and foe.

Oh, well, okay I overshot the 500-word limit, but I beat the 1,000-word limit. Or maybe I didn’t. I’ll still take it.

(Please allow 72-hours for Freedom editing and proofreading and self-editing to complete.)

America Must Support Kurdish Independence

America must support Kurdish independence. The number one nation on the planet that stands for freedom and independence is the United States of America. America failed the Kurdish people during the Obama injustice. They were largely ignored by the Bush administration.

US says it understands ‘legitimate aspirations’ of people in Iraqi Kurdistan.
State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert

I supported the Iraq war, not because of the CIA reports to George Bush concerning the chemicals of mass destructions or what experts call Weapons of Mass Destruction, (WMD), but because of the actual use of WMD against Kurdish people on 16 March 1988, known as the Halabja Chemical Attack or Halabja Massacre.

That is what the American people were told, that the Iraqis used poisonous gas to kill the Kurds, their own people. Or so they were called. That gave reason for a war and the overthrow of a brutal dictator named Saddam Hussein and his ruthless Ba’ath Party.
The Arab Socialist Ba’ath Party.

But that account has been disputed. Or at least questions raised of its authentic value.

He was Central Intelligence Agency’s senior political analyst on Iraq during the Iran-Iraq war, and a professor at the Army War College from 1988 to 2000, Stephen C. Pelletiere writes a different opinion. This article by Stephen C. Pelletiere appeared in the New York Times on 31 January 2003 and was reprinted several times since in other publications.
A War Crime Or An Act of War?
Who really gassed the Kurds?

A different view. Iran must have been using Iraqi helicopters to drop the Iranian bombs.
Halabja_chemical_attack
Iraqi blame Iran, Iran blames Iraq and we’re all confused.

“Iraqi MiG and Mirage aircraft began dropping chemical bombs on Halabja’s residential areas, far from the besieged Iraqi army base on the outskirts of the town.”

“…According to regional Kurdish rebel commanders, Iraqi aircraft, coordinated by helicopters, conducted up to 14 bombings in sorties of seven to eight planes each. Eyewitnesses told of clouds of white, black and then yellow smoke billowing upward and rising as a column about 150 feet (50 m) in the air.”

“…was and still remains the largest chemical weapons attack directed against a civilian-populated area in history.”

Stephen C. Pelletiere has written a lot of articles and books about Iraq, the Kurds and the Middle East. In one book he entitled he calls the Kurds “an unstable element in the Gulf.” Probably if you kick a beehive once too many times you’d call the bees unstable, too. I’m not taking sides with Stephen C. Pelletiere or anyone else that made a living in government paid for by the taxpayers and then sold tons of books and articles afterwards for his own profit. All I know is the one truth most of us can agree upon, especially since we are fresh into a political civil war that may well escalate to actual one: we can trust no one and we can believe no one. Period.

Bush got us into a mess. Obama made the mess much deeper. Trump is meeting all kinds of asinine resistance and NOBODY is trying to solve the problems that has escalated since Bush invaded Iraq and Obama failed to stop Daesh in June of 2014. Obama could have and should have stopped Daesh in Mosul, Iraq when they first showed their face to the world. He failed. He was afraid, just like James Comey was afraid of the man the American people elected. We don’t need leaders who are afraid, we need leaders who will let the experts who know their jobs, do their jobs and bring victory, not shame to our door. Millions of people, mostly innocent men, women and children have been slaughtered and have had every human right denied them because of ignorant politicians.

It is time that course changes. It is unlikely it will happen, though. The Kurds stood pretty much alone in their brave fight against Daesh. They fought with primitive weapons, with almost no help from the Americans. We could have given them powerful weapons and America’s finest soldiers and SEALs to guide them. We failed to. We had no leadership. The Kurds suffered tremendously. Still they fight on. They have been victimized for generations. Yet, they never lose the fight or the will for their well deserved freedom and independence.

The United States State Department may be correct to focus on defeating Daesh, before putting Kurdish independence on the table. But that same state department shouldn’t lose sight that if it weren’t for the Kurds, including large numbers of female warriors, like Rehana who killed over 100 Daesh fighters before being captured and beheaded and savagely disrespected, we’d still be at the beginning, not the end, of eliminating Daesh. Period. Let’s make sure the Kurdish independence is put on the table and a Kurdistan becomes a reality for the Kurdish people.

Nadia Murad is back home. At least for the moment. Visiting. There are a lot of dark memories mixed with remembrance of childhood joy. Joy that ended on 2 August 2014. Her tiny village of Kocho was attacked by Daesh and the Yezidi men were separated from the women. The men were killed. The women sold as sex slaves and human trafficked for Daesh fighters. Nadia escaped and found her way to safety. She has been a strong spokeswoman for Yezidi’s concerns ever since. The long road for this young, brave lady has been a trying one indeed. She will likely continue being a leader for the Kurdish people. Let it be in a land of the free, home of the brave and fully independence somewhere where the Kurdish people can live in peace and harmony with the rest of the world, especially their Arab natives.

Honor Killing of Qandeel Baloch

Pakistan’s social-media queen, Qandeel Baloch, a world renown social celebrity, is dead from honor killing. Her brother murdered her, according to news reports breaking out of Pakistan at this hour. The video immediately below is a live stream out of Pakistan at 6:00 AM PST. Thousands of women are slain every year in Pakistan and Middle Eastern regions for dishonoring their family. THERE IS NO FREEDOM FOR FEMALES IN THE LAND AMERICA SPENDS BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN SUPPORT. Ms. Baloch had fled Karachi to the Punjab or Multan region. There are conflicting reports, so time is needed to sort out the inaccurate reports. She was threaten with death. She was denied additional security from the Pakistan government. Attacks against her came too sudden for others to rescue her. Her escape was unsuccessful.

For millions of females enslaved under Sharia Law, there is no freedom and independence. Even at the age of 26, Qandeel Baloch was not able to live her life as she alone chose to live it. She was provocative, yes, but that is no reason the choice of her life, the clothes she desired to wear, the music she enjoyed playing and listening to and the lifestyle she chooses to live ought to bring her suffering death. This world must change course and DEMAND the banning of Sharia Law. Because one is born female is no excuse to enslave them as Islamic religion does. All women born under Islamic families have a birth right to freedom and independence. They have an inalienable right, a human right to be free and independent, to make their own choices of how they will live and conduct their life. We as a world must push the movement forward to free the females of Sharia Law slavery. Period!

BBC Report on Qandeel Baloch honor killing/

A woman’s behavior is not a man’s business. In Pakistan and most of the Arab and Islamic world females can be tortured or executed for such trivial things as failing to wear their vail, for the clothes they wear… or don’t wear. For dishonoring their family. For speaking to a male outside of their family membership and for adopting the Western culture and many other idiotic things based upon 7th Century culture.

It’s a sad day in the history of human rights that a world that calls itself modern and civilized continues to allow in the 21st Century a patriarchal culture and political ideology that enslaves the female in subversion, suppression, oppression, tyranny and ungodly evil.
