Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter Blames Iraqi Military for Faulty/Absent USG Military Strategy in Iraq!
While Ramadi, Iraq and Palmyra, Syria fall to ISIS --Carter assumes no responsibility/neither does Obama Administration/White House.
Palmyra was a beautiful city and I had fond memories of the “Venice of the Desert” so I was deeply disturbed when this treasure of antiquity fell to hordes of ISIS (created by the CIA/Bush/Cheney/Jerry Bremer). Next I hear Sec Def Carter boldly declared that the “Iraqi soldiers have no will to fight” and another once beautiful city, Ramadi, is felled by a comparatively undersized and ill-equipped ISIS.

I wondered whether this effete physicist whose only real accomplishment was to manage his lackluster ‘Brooks Brother’s career’[thanks Col. Ralph Peters] had even prepared to be nothing more than highly paid consultant to the Temple Money lenders at Goldman Sachs [which is what he had been among other things unsavory].
When I was asked about his appointment, I shrugged my shoulders in disappointment. I had seen seemingly polished Ivy Leaguers [Yale Summa Cum Laude in Medieval History an Physics; Phd from Oxford] all my life in national security; as well as in my unique training at Harvard and MIT. They were all made from the same mold of growing up in a protective bubble where their parents [father a navy neurologist/psychiatrist] allowed Ashton to receive the best education possible.
Clearly, I don’t begrudge his educational accomplishments, other than the fact that even in his background there is evidence that he took the easy way out of academia. Going to Oxford to receive a Phd in Physics is close to the equivalent of buying a degree of little significance from one of our on-line commercial colleges. In fact, there is no evidence in his entire history of consultantships from Mitre [CIA fed] to an assortment of other prestigious anoxic organizations [CFR], that Carter had really been in the nitty gritty front of battle; fighting counter-terrorism; nor studying war strategies/tactics.  He is more on the profit-making side of war/conflict, please check out many of his “partner positions” and BOD appointments.

Carter is a man of the privileged classes in America where for the most part, he never got his hands dirty in the textured world of inhumane deaths and brutal executions of well-conceived strategies/tactics.  Yet he makes a good side income from the military-industrial complex. Carter, like Rumsfeld, and Bob MacNamara [whiz-kid of the Vietnam war who had a mental break down] are part of the sanitized and profit-oriented version of war—sterile and incompetent. I would call these incredibly credentialed ‘water walkers’ as ‘operatives whom I had to stay away from’ …or ‘neutralize’ in my past efforts to affect operational change in the field of combat/terrorism.
Now, I discover that this well-manicured, completely inarticulate civilian representative of our formidable fighting forces, has just blamed in public the very people whom our brave warriors has supposedly trained, equipped and instructed. Carter publicly crucified his supposed ally, the Iraqi army, for fleeing and cowardice in the field of battle. That is a very strong indictment of not the Iraqi soldiers nor even the non-existent Iraqi Government but rather of George Bush Jr and his coterie of neocon chicken hawks who created this mess a decade 

Moreover, Carter’s accusation is akin to a verbal boomerang which indicts himself and those military men who sacrificed their lives in order to select, train and ‘force’ this proxy army of ethnic strife to fight an entity which his predecessors created when they attempted to disband the Saddam Hussein’s Army. [thanks to Jerry Bremer and Rummie]. Carter demonstrated that in the blame game of this particular administration as well as the three previous ones, none of them had the slightest idea of what they were doing in the ‘human terrain’  of combat and sustained kinetic encounters.
Americans have had the privilege to fund in the trillions of dollars, a completely inept series of administrations, each of which had proffered the seemingly ‘best and brightest’ to the forefront of leadership. Again, many of those in leadership have profited significantly by this constant warring. The reality of the past decades concerning Iraq and Afghanistan is that we have wasted and discarded the most valuable assets America has to offer—the men and women who want to serve this country. How many of us who had been in Ramadi or Palmyra [ as I had been during the Second Iraq War] feel betrayed by the complete incompetency of our civilian and military leaders who are only to eager to write a book or work as a consultant for large sums of money. How pathetic it is that we, Americans, were offered to read the absurd memoirs of the dysfunctional braggadocios like  Bush Jr;  McCrystal; McRaven; Cheney; Panetta; Gates; Hillary; Obama in order to realize that there was no gravitas nor strategic sense in these representatives of the ‘best and brightest.’ 

It would be best if Carter would resign for having been rude, inappropriate and incompetent in all aspects of his short tenure. Not to mention, did anyone in authority realized that he was “mobbed up” by the war industry?  Talk about conflict of interest. Maybe President Obama had basically run out of possible sacrificial lambs. 
Our country has once again confronted the ineptitude of civility where the fighting grunts who have died and those who are willing to die—have to ask themselves as they had done in the Korean War, Vietnam War and the prolonged wars in Iraq and Afghanistan—what am I doing? Was it worth being doomed to a hospital bed for life, trying to exist with half a body?

Americans must turn back to the times and methods when we were forced by necessity and limited time to select out a George Marshall; an Eisenhower; a Patton; a Curtis LeMay; and a Nimitz.  If we don’t address our real national security issue: the absence of effective civilian and military leadership then we,  the Republic will certainly disappear into the footnotes of history as an example of a country that had lost its way and destroyed itself through the pretense of having selected the ‘best and brightest’ when in fact they were the ‘worst and most cowardly’.

a post from a reader, here's where our money goes....

Thank You General Raymond Odierno for Reaffirming the Legitimate Concern: Our citizens DO NOT trust the government nor the Military.
Implementing the Pathetic Idea of “Invading” Texas in Order to Enhance SOCOM’s “Human Domain” just adds fuel to the fire.
A stupid idea deserves a proper answer: Stop the Wasteful $10B Exercise called Jade Helm 15.
It will do nothing but alarm the American citizens and reaffirm the fact that we, Americans, can not trust our civilian and military leadership to do anything effective except to appear as if they are implementing “martial law”.
Just when I was about to take sigh of relief while eating dinner at my local diner, three different veterans came up to me and asked me what did I think about “Jade Helm 15” ?  Initially, I had no idea of what they were talking about.  So I looked it up then I was completely shocked.

I read that General Odierno was going to spend over $10B to deploy a complement of troops throughout the Southwest of the USA—Texas, Utah, New Mexico, and Colorado from July 15 to September 15.
Why is this exercise completely absurd and wasteful?
There is no way that any of our elite soldiers will learn about ‘human terrain’ of foreign enemies by playing these useless war games. Desert areas in America; as well as Americans have no correspondence to the topography, cultures and psychology of Arabs, Muslims or Bedouins. Remember: Odierno had the dubious distinction of being chief military advisor to Condoleeza Rice during the Iraq War.  I think he should be unloaded for poor performance and very poor decision making.

For many of us, this exercise reaffirms the incompetency and lies which have prevailed for over thirty years with the Clinton, Bush Jr and now Obama administrations.  Such leadership have proven countless times that they know nothing about the nature of wars or how to conduct an effective kinetic overseas action. Instead they have all proven to be indifferent and inured to the concerns of the American public which does not trust our USG.
Now General Odierno has literally transferred that mistrust and dislike for our present and past presidents to our failing military which cannot and has not won a war since WWII [and even then it was the Soviets who bore most of the burden].

Odierno, too bad you didn’t read my book entitled, State Of Emergency written twenty years ago in which I delineating the precipitant to the next civil war just like your actions of placing military troops into Southwest states—in my book it was Nevada, Utah, New Mexico. It would be less costly and less intrusive for you and your Special Forces to learn about psychology, national character and foreign languages at Fort Bragg without having to incur a wasteful 10 billion dollars and rightfully scaring our concerned citizens and Veterans.

Here is what you have to learn about our country and it’s basic needs and failures because like most political generals, you are wasting billions which can be used far more effectively for the following domestic issues:
20% of our children under 18 years old are in poverty.
17.5 million households [14%] were ‘food insecure’.
serious infrastructure problem and severe water shortage.
major deterioration in northern/midwestern urban areas
public schools standards and education of our youth on a downward spiral especially compared to other countries

General Odierno,  Eisenhower had warned us about toy soldiers like you and your comrades who are splayed all over the world, losing one battle after another for an indecent amount of years: Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan.  Are we supposed to be impressed with your accoutrements of faux education—Honorary Doctorate from the Institute of World Politics in Washington DC, along with multiple degrees from military/civilian institutions?  How did your Iraq strategy work out???  What about all the great advice you gave super star Condi Rice?  

I find it refreshing that Governor Greg Abbott had engaged in the proper action of ordering the Texas National Guard to monitor your incompetencies. Contrary to the hysterical NYTimes which thinks that the American people have no right to mistrust our civilian and military rulers when on Sept 1, 2001, we were lied to; insulted; and worst of all murdered in the ersatz name of ‘national security’ and the even more nonsensical term “War On Terror.”  In addition, I want to know where are the responsible voices in congress that say stop this archaic military madness that is so wasteful and so counter productive?  Did you get promised some campaign contributions to keep quiet?  Or are you just so out of touch with the citizens that you are supposedly elected to represent?
Over the past thirty years, our military has functioned below par yet has received more money to fight foreign wars for which they had never had the courage to refuse or implement effectively, leaving the inept civilians like Clinton [Bill And Hillary]; Bush Jr; and Obama as well as his novitiate WH coterie –to mandate kinetic actions overseas which lead to more mayhem and chaos a la Libya, Iraq, Syria, Yemen.  Meanwhile, back at home, our own country is deteriorating in quality of life for many (education, jobs, health, clean environment).

Message to Military and Government Leadership: Stop wasting money and being just stupid.  Americans are fed up with you.

Miami Billionaire Norman Braman, Major Car Dealer Supports ‘Cuban Gnome’ Marc Rubio for the Presidency
Good luck ! I Bought a BMW 750 Sedan from Braman Motors which was a “Lemon”!
Sometimes I have an occasion to pierce the publicity shield created around our 2016 Presidential Candidates with a particular insight or past experience. No one has been more attractive to me as ersatz front runners, the well-spoken Hispanics, Ted Cruz/Marco Rubio—who are being supported by Jewish businessmen with questionable ethical backgrounds.  I have already discussed the repulsive Jewish thug from Nevada, the portly, ignorant casino owning Bugsy Segal wannabe—Sheldon Adelson and his Israeli born wife. His ignoble squandering of money to Republican candidates is based on one false assumption: the dire need for all Americans to support Israel. However, a far more sophisticated merchant of questionable goods is Norman Braman, a man I have never met yet I have gotten to know through the faulty merchandise and services he purports to provide in Miami.

Some time ago, I went shopping for a car. Suffice it to say, I had bought a ‘used’ or ‘pre-owned’ BMW Sedan with significantly low mileage. His car dealership was no better nor worse than any other car dealership in Florida. They hustle, sell, and bargain. Nothing unusual there. However, from the beginning of my ownership of my BMW sedan, I had nothing but troubles. The tires that went with the car when I bought it—blew out within weeks. Then I bought new tires from Braman Motors. Needless to say—wasted money. 
Next a series of mishaps occurred with the electronic system and eventually the transmission shaft started to deteriorated before I could avoid an inevitable catastrophe. All that time, I had the best that Braman Motor Management and Services could provide—much palaver and increasing amount of dysfunction and incompetency. Do I need to tell you that I traded that ‘lemon’ for a SUV of Japanese origin.
The point is quite simple.
Braman is a flashy name with a lot of faux elegance and integrity.  He and his wife purport to be art collectors and charity donors without having the necessary gravitas of any intellectual force or studied grace of savoir-faire. They are the pure, unadulterated product of a time when Jewish youngsters in America grew up from the streets of Pennsylvania, as Braman did, engaged in some type of financial chicanery which allowed him to buy a football team, the Philadelphia Eagles, and then expanded into a massive car dealership extending all over Miami and Colorado.  Ask the sports fans and citizens of Philadelphia what they think about Norman Braman.

Don’t get me wrong. I believe that whatever Braman did to get to his position of wealth, be it greed tempered with fantasy story tales, that is his business. However, when the likes of Adelson and Braman become national figures of crass money indulgences like supporting Republican candidates for the Presidency of the USA, then it becomes an issue for me.  How a person climbs the greasy pole of politics to reach the Presidency, is their business and mine, if it turns out to be contrary to the interest of the USA. Marco Rubio is not a representative of anything more than some pathetic Spanish-speaking Cuban American who does nothing more than splatter a story line of arising from poverty to ascension in Florida political offices with no major accomplishment than his ability to retell his nauseous story of a Cuban family that ‘fled Castro’.

The truth is that Rubio and his wife who is also hired by Braman for their ‘ersatz’ foundation related to Genomics [I doubt that Braman knows anything about the history of Watson –Crick, Sanger, or the contributions of Cambridge University to DNA-RNA research] have been ‘a welfare family’ for the rich Miami Jews who find Rubio quaint and articulate (for a Cuban). If we had painted a black face on Rubio, in the olden days, we could have anointed him as “Sambo”, the caricature of African –American. In reality, the best we can call Marco Rubio’s accomplishments insignificant , if non-existent.
Rubio and his family are very much like my former BMW Sedan, sleek, fancy, denoting wealth and elegance…. BUT in truth a Braman lemon that he sold to a “sucker” like me. That’s my problem.  Yet, I do not want the low class Jews, like Adelson and Braman, to eventually determine the future of America and make us all ‘suckers’!

Get a new type of candidate. Someone, not beholden to any one particular person, Jew, Christian or whatever, and who has shown a history of accomplishment as a governor in the Midwest or became a professional, other than some type of dullard lawyer. It’s time for America to start shopping around for a candidate with no real miscreant baggage, endowed with care for this country because they had served it more than they had served themselves.

Caveat emptor! Buyer beware!

Its time for the rich, mafioso types to go away or at least OUT of the political process, AMERICA does not need thugs bankrolling our political candidates, that includes Norman Braman (Rubio).  There was a time long ago where any self respecting candidate would stay away from these mobsters...

Seal Team 6 / Bin Laden Lies Predicted 14 Years in Advance

Once  Dr. Steve's 14 year prediction after the false flag 9/11 stand own was right on what he predicted that a future president will claim that SEAL Team would kill Oasma. But Osama was already dead with Marfan Syndrome! There was no SEAL execution - all a lie by Obama admirals MacRaven --team leader- Adm Mullen -- also Panetta and John Brennan DCI.

Lufthansa Senior Managers as well as Physicians who examined Co-Pilot, Andreas Lubitz, are guilty of collusion in covering up the details regarding the terrorist pilot! 
He killed 149 Innocent Passengers from Germany, Spain, France and other countries.
From the very beginning of this tragedy on March 24, 2015, I specifically delineated this ‘suicide act’ committed by the 27 year old Andreas Lubitz’s of deliberately flying the German airline [ Lufthansa ] into the French Alps as a clear act of premeditated—TERRORISM! And not some ‘mental disorder’ which no one could pick up along the way.
Contrary to the prevailing views that this was a disturbed individual who had a history of mental illness, I specifically refused to accept that notion that the death of 149 innocent passengers was merely an act of some ‘crazy person’ who wanted just to kill himself, willingly taking 149 innocent victims with him. I said without any hesitation that Andreas actions were well thought out, even planned to the smallest detail; and could have been prevented like any other act of terrorism. 

Perhaps, no single person is more culpable of this premeditated act of terrorism than Carsten Spohr, Chairman and CEO of Lufthansa since 2007.  Spohr, an industrial engineer by training and a qualified pilot, immediately and intentionally lied to the public and the families of the victims. He was, as we say in the psychiatry/intelligence business, a clear give away when he emphatically declared “that Andreas Lubitz had passed both his physical and mental status exam without any problems”. Spohr knew differently. 
How do I know that?
Over thirty years of working in the counter-terrorism business as well as reorganizing major companies, I have learned that the CEO, whomever he/she might be, is always responsible for the ultimate acts of all of the employees. And in Spohr’s case, he had been in charge of the Lufhthansa personnel as far back as 1996 [according to his bio]. Why am I so emphatic about making this incident a criminal and not civil case?
The reason is simple!
Flying is a complicated business with multiple variables that have to be monitored. However, from my experience, I knew that the mental status of most pilots has rarely been addressed appropriately –or even at all.This tragedy highlights the fact that a plane can be an instrument of death as easy as a gun, artillery shell or bomb. In the wrong hands, a plane becomes an instrument of death and destruction as effective as a bomb.
Whether someone wants to fly the plane into a building as an act of terror as in 9/11 then it is equally plausible that same plane can be flown into the ground as an act of terror in order to instill fear in the passengers on board; as well as, the potential passengers who might want to fly one day. Terror is not the act of destruction; but the act of terror in order to instill fear into an innocent populace all over the world.
Such a terrorist was Andreas Lubitz. 
Despite the pathetic plaintive cries of clergymen from his town in Germany or individuals involved in his former gliding club, no amount of white washing can eliminate the very definite act of a man, like Andreas Lubitz, who spent countless hours, days and possibly years, mapping out the method, place and techniques by which he would eventually kill 149 innocent people, many of whom were school children. There is no mercy for him or the ‘co-conspirators’ like Carsten Spohr and Dr. Wolfgang Roller, Honorary Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Lufthansa. These officious individual representing nothing more than their financial interests in a company that prides itself on “German Excellence in Engineering and Service.”
It’s time for the world to understand that every pilot flying any plane can be a potential terrorist as long as he/she is never evaluated effectively for mental illness or suicidal ideations with the intent to kill massive amounts of innocent people.
That day has not come yet.
Only after a significant prosecution of the people involved in this tragedy will the world once again trust flying and the pilots.

Obamacare Starting to Fall Apart: More Medicaid Patients Use Emergency Rooms than Private Physicians! 
90% of Patients Are Sicker!
I have said very little concerning Obamacare. I knew that it would eventually implode on itself because it was based on extremely faulty premises. First, Medicaid patients could not and would not find physicians. Secondly, physicians would be reimbursed at a much lower rate than before. Thirdly, there were not enough physicians [especially American-trained ones] to take charge of all the patients who were supposed to receive the insurance. Finally, over 100 Million people have some type of insurance for mental health care yet there are not enough psychiatrists and mental health professionals to take care of a fraction of these people.
You get the idea.
Obamacare is going to fall apart from its own structural/ functional distortions which were based on faulty premises created by legislators who never had to worry about their own health care. From the very beginning of the Obamacare, I had a serious concerns about those who created this dysfunctional healthcare system. Most of the Senators and Congressmen who voted for the Nancy Pelosi ‘grab-bag’ –“lets find out what Obamacare really entails after we have passed the bill” were spoiled, entitled people who for the most part, should have visited pediatricians rather than internal medicine practitioners.

Pelosi was, as were her congressional henchmen, completely inept in their understanding or implementation of health program that had no correlation to what these legislatives centurions were accustomed to in terms of their own health care. All legislators have the Navy Bethesda Hospital as well as Walter Reed Army Hospital at their convenience for FREE! They are cradled in a special insurance plan that could take care of dystrophic alien with total body ailments [whatever that would be] ---again for FREE!
In reality we have the weakest, most effete element of our society designing a system to work for the rest of us. It doesn’t work to entrust those least able to provide for themselves in the open capitalist markets without constantly pandering for  special favors [which is what a politician is really about] in return for nothing.
The WSJ article on May/4/2015 discusses what I have known and suspected for decades since I first started practicing medicine in 1968—the Emergency Rooms of most hospitals has always acted as the primary care facility for most patients in the USA. We, doctors, have not been able to turn away any patient once they stepped into the Emergency Room. Never in my career as a Medical Doctor and Board-Certified Psychiatrist have I turned away anyone in need of physical or mental health care.
Now, these patients who come to the ER have been older and sicker as the population of the country has aged accordingly. Also, as fewer American citizens refuse to curb their voracious diet for sweets, fats and junk food, we, doctors, are seeing a preventable epidemic of diabetes, heart disease and other symptoms of a drastically bad diet and sedentary life.
The notion of preventive medicine has not and probably will not invade our pervasive mindset, fostered by the greedy Big Pharma, that all medicines, irrespective of how expensive they were, could rescue our bodies from the inevitable destruction of “well-being” sloth and ignorance. I know of several cases where men and women patients decided that it was easier to risk surgery for a stomach band [which is paid in full by the USG] than go on a reasonable diet or exert oneself for some type of moderate exercise.
Instead, we find the easy way out.
Yet it just does not work.

One example: overweigh patient undertook a stomach-band surgery in order to lose weight. This patient developed severe bronchial asthma as a result of the obesity. This patient then went on inhaler and nebulizers which created heart arrhythmia. This patient was admitted to the hospital several times to arrest the arrhythmia and ended up with an unsuccessful ablation of the AV node.
So the story goes on and on.
The administration was so concerned about making certain that everyone had health insurance that was affordable yet the actual cost of healthcare rose dramatically. New policies that reimbursed physicians at a much lower rate so physicians now refuse to see the patients and pass them on to the ER where they were charged a significantly large amount of money for a very simple procedure which could have been treated by a primary doctor –who no longer exists because it is impossible for him/her to make a decent living. Fewer doctors are left to treat patients.

I was recently offered a full time job as a psychiatrist for the state of Maryland at about 2/3 of the money that was offered to the actor, Matthew McConaughey, for speaking at the commencement ceremony of the University of Houston for just an hour ($155K).  Also, let us not forget that Rami Emmanuel, then Chief of Staff for the Obama White House, agreed to pay over $80B to the Pharmaceutical Industries to allow the passage of the Obamacare bill. Now, that is a pretty penny.
As a physician who has decided to leave my profession, I strongly suggest that if you have any type of mental ailment or dyspepsia, please call the aforementioned actor or an executive at Big Pharma that continues to insist that they can charge as much as they can and want, even for generic drugs. Ask the Big Pharma rep if she/he knows how to prevent or treat suicidal ideation with a modicum of success?
Better yet, please call up Dr James McDermott, Congressman from Washington State [paid by Boeing] and ask him why he does not identify himself as a Board Certified Child and Adult Psychiatrist rather than a Congressman? He worked for in the State Department as a Regional Medical Psychiatrist. Now, he hides behind the platitudes of palaver and process. That’s his choice!
Its time for Americans to vote in those representatives who can dismantle this absurd beached behemoth, entitled “Obamacare” ; after a costly segue of internet incompetency which marked the beginning passage of a piece of legislation which belongs to no citizens; other than those who have already been treated for free. We are not a healthy nation. We have no will power or discipline to enact anything other than indulging in immediate mental and culinary gratification. We Botox our faces. We drink beer as if it were water from a faucet. We eat as if there is no other meal will be served. We glorify our chefs as they become the new elite of our society; adoring their every word and motion in the kitchen as if culinary arts was the new religion de jour.

It is often said that an army walks in its stomach. But, I say that a nation that crawls on its stomach to the Emergency Room is destined to die a prolonged, ghastly death.
Unfortunately, there is no real recourse. Once in the ER; next in the OR; then in the mortuary.
In the words of the comedian, Woody Allen:
“I’m not afraid to die. I just don’t want to be there when it happens.”
