Will There Be Revolution ???

Here is an essay by Luke Eastwood which gives a rationale for why we may see violent revolution:

Stimulus has failed to produce any ‘green shoots’ simply because it has been directed to where it is of no benefit (except to the already rich) and not at where it desperately needs to go. Throwing good money after bad is not going to change anything unless it is redirected to the bottom and middle earners who are the lifeblood of any consumer society.

Quoting Raul Ilargi Meyer’s recent article: ‘Any stimulus must be directed at the bottom, or it must of necessity fail … it’s very simply that an economy cannot function without its poorer 90% of citizens spending.’

If this is true, which I believe it is, then more monetizing debt can only lead these ailing economies into further ruination and further beggaring of the masses. If this continues then the bulk of the population will become poor enough and angry enough to demand change on their own terms.

This will begin with mass protest and if it is ignored or suppressed then continued attempts to retain the status quo will lead to insurrections and possibly violent revolutions. One can only hope that governments will act soon in the interest of the people for once instead of lining the pockets of corporations and those that own them.

"One can only hope ..."? Hope is the quintessential human delusion.

Sooner or later, every violent "people's revolution" is hijacked by a tyrant. How therefore can revolution solve the very real problems of which Mr. Eastwood speaks?

It can't, and the US "revolution" is a prime example of why it can't. Our "people's revolution" was really a counterrevolution intended to halt the abolition of slavery, and in that regard it did a damn good job. And we eventually evolved into an even greater tyrant than King George III.

Such is the fate of all modern violent revolutions.

Meet the new boss: same as the old boss.

Social Decay In The Indispensible Nation

I suggest you read this report and then think about what it means. Here are 10 examples of the social decay which is eating away at our nation like a vicious cancer:

#1 It seems like many of the most horrific crimes these days are happening in middle America. For example, a woman was recently hit over the head, raped, and set on fire in a park in Wichita Kansas.

#2 I have repeatedly written about how the United States is the most obese of all the major industrialized nations. Well, now we are using our extreme obesity to try to hide things that we have stolen. A 350-pound Wal-mart shopper was arrested yesterday after he was found sitting atop five stolen rib eye steaks in the seat of a motorized scooter that he was riding around the South Carolina store.

#3 What would you do if a police officer pulled you over for a traffic stop and exposed his private parts to you when he came up to your vehicle? Well, this actually has been happening in New Jersey.

#4 If someone was planning to “accidentally” kill his wealthy wife, you would think that he would be smart enough not to put an “X” on the map where he planned to do it. But that is apparently precisely what one man in Colorado foolishly did.

#5 It is one thing to kill someone. It is another thing to hack the dead body up with a saw and cook it. I don’t know what in the world has happened to the state of Florida, but a lot of really weird stuff has been going on down there lately.

#6 In recent years, it seems like there has been a constant stream of news stories about twisted men locking up women in their basements and forcing them to be sex slaves. The latest example comes from Cincinnati.

#7 Why would a grown woman want to have sex with a 10-year-old boy? You would have to be incredibly sick to try to do such a thing, but that is reportedly what one 25-year-old babysitter in Connecticut is charged with doing.

#8  A minor scuffle between two girls at a California high school erupted into a melee when a 400 pound police officer slammed his fist into the face of one of the girls. Other students began to swarm the officer, and at that point things got wildly out of control.

#9 When I was growing up, it seemed like almost everyone watched the Cosby Show on Thursday night. Bill Cosby was “America’s Dad”, and he was universally respected. Well, it turns out that now he is being accused of rape by 15 different women. How is it possible that such horrific crimes could be covered up for so long, and what does that say about our society?

#10 As I have written about previously, the violence that we have seen in Ferguson, Missouri this year is a perfect example of how the streets of America can descend into chaos. And now the upcoming grand jury decision threatens to rekindle that violence.

Instead of sober deliberation about this case and sincere attempts at peaceful reconciliation, both sides are preparing for mass civil unrest. If the grand jury reaches “the wrong decision” we could see even more rioting, looting, violence and police brutality than we saw the first time around.

One day we shall finally wake up to realize that the "indispensible nation" was based on a pack of lies, and everything we previously stood on will crumble away beneath our feet. What will we do then? What will be the basis for the re-invention of America? Can people so depraved and so at war with each other even hope to remain one nation?

Distorting History For The Benefit Of Israel

Here is a poorly publicized aspect of the recent massacre in Jerusalem:

... the Har Nof neighborhood in West Jerusalem, where four rabbis and a police officer were recently murdered, is built on the lands of Deir Yassin, the Arab village which no longer exists, that was the site of the 1948 massacre, which according to Menachem Begin, was pivotal to the founding of the Jewish state. This was an early massacre in the Nakba; there were many more to follow, but it struck fear among Palestinians, causing many to flee, also giving the Jews an angle for campaigns of terror, which they visited on other Palestinian villages, basically “Get out or we’ll do to you what we did in Deir Yassin.”

It is interesting to ask why the media, which has been all over this synagogue massacre, mentions nothing about what happened on this site on April 9, 1948?

The answer is that although we are continually reminded of the Holocaust, the crimes of the Israelis are nowhere discussed in America:

At Yad Vashem all visitors, and especially American politicians, are repeatedly told to “Never forget.” At Deir Yassin the message is “Never mind.”

This statement at the end of Professor McGowan's essay exemplifies the degree to which Israel controls and stifles discussion of their atrocities and human rights abuses:

Because of admonishment by the administration, it is hereby stated that the above remarks are solely those of the author. Hobart and William Smith Colleges neither condone nor condemn these opinions. Furthermore, the author has been instructed to use his personal email address of and not his college email at for those wishing to contact him with comments or criticisms.

Any and all lies or distortions which portray Palestinians as devils are welcomed in America, but any discussion which might portray Israel in a bad light is verboten. Given this historical blindness, is it any wonder that we have absolutely no clue what is really happening in the Middle East?

China, Japan, and Korea Don't Need TPP

China, Japan, and S. Korea are negotiating their own free trade agreement:

The South Korean trade ministry said it will also actively participate in the China-led Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP).

South Korea has sought to join the negotiations for the RCEP, a multilateral FTA that will include China, South Korea, Japan and 10 members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) as well as India, Australia and New Zealand.

Who needs the US and TPP when through RCEP you can have access to most of the developing world?

On the other hand, some countries aren't so happy trading with China:

This brings up a pressing issue: China overwhelms just about any country they do business with. China therefore may eventually rule most if not all of the world's trade. Does the US really think diplomatic and military pressure can reverse this trend? Or that splitting the world into competing trade blocs can stop it?

The US let the "free trade" genie out of the bottle. If that genie is now peeing on our corn flakes, we've got no one to blame for it except ourselves.

Why Obama ad-Dajjal Should Be Impeached

This opinion piece in The New York Times states reasons why Obama ad-Dajjal should be impeached, but then claims it would be wrong to do so:

He could be impeached on several grounds, many of which you can find on this blog - all of which you can find on the Internet:

But the most important reason he should be impeached is to reestablish the authority of Congress. If we do not do so now, it will never be done.

Can A New Cold War Save US Dollar ???

This report suggests that America's new Cold War is motivated by a desire to save the US dollar:

[You may have to translate from the original German to read the report.]

Many economists have been saying for years that the US economy will collapse when the dollar loses its primacy in the world's economy. Of course the US will try to prevent this from happening for as long as possible.

But that will merely make the collapse, when it happens, all that more severe.

Is Monsanto's Roundup Safe ???

Here is a report which presents in graphic form evidence that Monsanto's Roundup is NOT safe for humans:

Who ya gonna believe? The data of the billionaire corporation who makes this stuff ... or the people's data?

This brings up an interesting question: why does "science" often prove everything is fine when you can see with your own eyes that everything is NOT fine? Is it because you are stupid and/or uneducated, or because scientists are lapdogs of the corporations who provide their funding?
