Tarsand follies

What is it with this asphalt pipeline they want to build?

http://www.bsnorrell.blogspot.com/2013/01/texas-tarsands-action-blockader.html

The word is that the chief customer for the refined tarsand oil will be China. Why should the US breath and drink the pollution from a product that will not benefit the population at large? Let the Canadians breathe it and deal with the inevitable oil spills.

Now that Hillary Clinton has gone into hiding, will the State Department rush through the approval for this thing? I'm betting that our new "crash the plane, screw the widow" Secretary of State could always use a few million more dollars to play with.

Serving their masters

It appears that Obama ad-Dajjal and his minion Eric Holder are protecting Wall Street criminals:

http://therealnews.com/t2/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=31&Itemid=74&jumival=9580#.UQrx4h2ukpk

This whole phenomenon suggests that a financial mafia that has become too powerful to prosecute (a.k.a. "too big to fail') is now running the world. What do you think will happen once they finally topple the US government, which I think is their next big goal? Will you be happy then?

Why are we killing them?

This latest from Jacob Hornberger:

Let us pray that the government stop engaging in this horrific, sinful conduct and that it stop using the troops in this horrible way. Let us pray that God gives the president, the Pentagon, and the CIA the wisdom to stop what they are doing, withdraw from Yemen, and bring the troops home without killing one more person.


Amen! But I think it will take more than God's wisdom to turn these people around. He'll have to intervene Himself if His will is to be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. [I wonder, how many of the clowns mentioned above recite the Lord's Prayer with their children and have no intention of ever carrying out its commandments?]

I think we should also consider one more thing about the killings. Is it possible that Obama ad-Dajjal is killing people who know who he really is? Perhaps we should compare where he has lived and what he has done to whom he is killing. He does imitate Hitler in all things, and one of the things Hitler did after coming to power was to remove all evidence of his early life, including his homosexuality and pederasty. Is Obama ad-Dajjal doing something similar, perhaps erasing evidence of a former life as a jihadist?

The free exercise thereof

Should a court be allowed to compel a pastor to testify when doing so would violate his or her religious beliefs?

http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/pastor-sex-parent-dispute-remains-jailed-18365769

Or is the real issue here that the state is all-powerful and no one has the right to resist it for any reason? If it is, the doctrine of "response to resistance" then gives the state the authority to use any means, including lethal ones, to compel compliance.

Is this what we want?

Flat busted in Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe is flat broke:

http://www.theatlanticwire.com/global/2013/01/zimbabwe-down-its-last-217/61562/

This all started when President Mugabe seized land occupied by white farmers to give it to black citizens of his country. I got the impression he did this to help feed his own people.

Now the international financial community (composed of mostly white boys and girls), after holding their breath until they and the people of Zimbabwe turned blue, have managed to get their revenge against these blacks who had the NERVE to want to feed themselves and their children.

What I want to know is this: did seizing the farms actually help people feed themselves? If it did, then perhaps more farms should be seized and Mr. Mugabe deserves a round of applause. This reminds me too much of what America did to Cuba. They embarrassed us so we crushed them, and continue to do so even today.

Are property rights more important than human rights? They are in America, and it looks like they are in Zimbabwe, too.

Is greed a war crime?

Thought-provoking op-ed piece in The New York Times:

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/30/opinion/treat-greed-in-africa-as-a-war-crime.html?_r=0

Why should greed be a crime, when torture and killing innocent people with drones are not?

If greed is a war crime, Wall Street should go to jail. I'd vote for that.

More alike than you many think

Take a look at what is happening in Egypt:

http://www.csmonitor.com/Commentary/the-monitors-view/2013/0129/Egypt-s-protests-reveal-deficit-of-trust-in-Muslim-Brotherhood?nav=87-frontpage-entryCommentary

You may not agree with me, but I think what the Muslim Brotherhood is encountering in Egypt is exactly what Christian Churches are encountering in America: the Great Falling Away from Patriotism and Organized Religion. In this context, "Muslim Brotherhood" = "Religious Fundamentalists Who Want To Run The Country".

The same force is causing the same phenomenon to happen everywhere. Only two entities are capable of such a thing: God and Satan (or the proxies of these two).

You think we're not in the The End Times? Stick around, pay attention, and you'll soon see what I mean.

Encouragement from Charlie Daniels

I like the way Charlie thinks:

http://cnsnews.com/blog/charlie-daniels/encouragement-time-grave-fear

Amen.

I would add the following to supplement his comments: a powerful entity masquerading as "our" government is destroying nations all around the world, and it is also destroying this nation. The phenomenon looks a bit different depending on which side of the fence you are on, but make no mistake - destruction is their game.

I also believe there will be chaos and bloodshed, not because that is what the people want but because that is what "our" government wants. Take a look at Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria; "our" government did all that. Those nations did not want chaos or bloodshed either, but that is all America gave them.

To resist what is happening requires faith, and faith in God is one of the things "our" government has been trying so very hard to destroy.

No patriotism + no religion = Satan's Kingdom. Brought to you by the United States of America. It doesn't make sense, does it?

Plastic planet

We have turned this planet into a plastic-laced trash heap:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-21236477

Scheiße !!!

A double standard?

I have no idea whether this article is accurate or not, but Justin usually knows what he's talking about:

http://original.antiwar.com/justin/2013/01/06/israels-anti-black-pogrom/

Where's the voice of Obama ad-Dajjal in the face of this? If it's true, does he oppose it? If it's a lie, where is his denial?

Too fond of it

Confederate General Robert E. Lee once observed:

It is well that war is so terrible -- lest we should grow too fond of it.

Unfortunately for both ourselves and everyone else in the world, we have somehow become too fond of this terrible activity. Perhaps it's because we can now fight at arm's length with aircraft, drones, and other long-range weapons; perhaps because our cities and families are seldom if ever attacked; perhaps because we call it something else, such as "kinetic action", instead of "war"; perhaps because we hide the carnage from ourselves.

Whatever the case, we are definitely too fond of it.

[Note: There are several versions of this Lee quote. I selected the one I found most pleasing.]

Role reversal

I wonder if this means that someday they will free Mumia? I doubt it.

http://blogs.phillymag.com/the_philly_post/2013/01/29/philadelphia-egopo-theater-stage-uncle-toms-cabin-white/

Unfortunately racism serves a key purpose in the American power structure. Its (racism's) nature may change, but America will not voluntarily give it up.

And I don't think this is the way anyhow; retribution and public humiliation are not the same as atonement. The public is not on a gun-buying frenzy for the purpose of atonement.

Messiah, or antichrist?

Two of the central figures in the American Revolution were George Washington, the "Father of our country", and Benjamin Franklin, one of the prophets of the revolution. Washington is often regarded as a messiah, in that his leadership ability saved the formative nation from military defeat at the hands of the British.

One might even say that Washington has become a deity in our civil religion, a Christ-like Messiah. There is even a crypt under the Capitol Rotunda which was intended to lead to a tomb which would be Washington's burial place. It does not in fact contain the body of Washington, but I believe that it was left there empty to honor Washington as America's Messiah in imitation of the following scripture:

He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
Matthew 28:6 KJV

And what about our prophet Benjamin Franklin? One of the things every schoolchild used to be taught about him is that as a scientist he conducted the famous kite experiment with electricity. Were we taught this in acclaim of his scientific achievements, or to link him to the following scripture?

And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, If I be a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.
2 Kings 1:10 KJV

But is this a correct betrayal of the two men? Any man who says he is the Messiah and who is not Jesus is a false messiah, and perhaps even the antichrist:

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Matthew 24:24 KJV

And instead of being Elijah, perhaps the prophet of our revolution is better described by this scipture:

And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.
Revelation 13:13 KJV

Since the beginning, America's leaders have been the high priests of our civil religion and the keepers of the flame. The Constitution they ordained is a covenant, hopefully a covenant with God. One has to ask, why do they now tolerate and possibly support the breaking of that covenant by the constant acts and omissions of Obama ad-Dajjal? Is it because they now wish to break their covenant with God, or because all along it has really been a covenant with Satan?

I am not a messiah, and I have no wish to be a false prophet. I'm just an old man dreaming dreams. I have nowhere to lead you, except to your Bible. Please read it and then think about what America's "leaders" are doing; not just what they are saying, but what they are actually doing (including the things they are trying hard to hide from you). Are we on the right path? If not and if they won't change, we'll have to do it ourselves.

Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Matthew 7:14 KJV

Trickle-down sadism

The chickens have indeed come home to roost:

They're all thugs

Clearly America has a ruling class that will never play by the rules they impose on others:

Advice to the rest of the world: don't be like America. Sex, drugs, and rock and roll may sound like a lot of fun, but when you tire of those we have nothing else to offer.

Connecting some dots

Let's connect some dots:

  • Obama ad-Dajjal is preparing to take your guns.
  • The Army is conducting "exercises" in South Houston.
  • The Gitmo prison is staying open.
  • People who reveal what the gov't is doing (even the illegal stuff) go to jail, while torturers and war criminals get promotions.

If these dots don't lead to "military dictatorship" and other deep dark doo-doo, then I'm missing something.

What do you think?

Army drill scares residents on Houston's south side

Borrowed from HOUSTON (KTRK) on 1/28/2013:

The sight of Army helicopters and the sound of gunfire created a lot of concern Monday afternoon in one Houston neighborhood.

We received a lot of phones calls, Tweets and Facebook posts from worried neighbors, wondering what was going on.

SkyEye 13 HD was over the south side where at first look, it appeared there was a massive SWAT scene happening.

With military helicopters flying above her southeast Houston neighborhood, Frances Jerrals didn't know what to think.

"When you see this, you think the worst. When you hear this, you think the worst," Jerrals said.

And so, she passed along her concern.

"She told me 'don't come home it sounds like we're in a war zone. Guns, shooting, helicopters flying around the house,'" Isaac Robertson Jr. said.

The U.S. Army along with other agencies took over the old Carnegie Vanguard High School near Scott and Airport. There were armed men in fatigues, plenty of weapons and what many thought were real live rounds

"I felt like I was in a warzone." Jerrals said. "It was nonstop. I was terrified."

Turns out, it was a multi-agency training drill that Jerrals wished would have come with warning.

"They could have done a better job in notifying the neighborhood," Jerrals said.

The Army did not give any details of what the training is for. Some people we spoke to needed no explanation.

"If it's to protect our kids, I'm all for it," neighbor Glenn DeWitt said.

You've got to be fucking kidding! The US Army openly prepares for operations inside the US and people are "all for it"? To protect their kids from what?

Patrick Henry is rolling over in his grave.

The Great White Camel

Here is an excerpt from a thoughtful review of the movie Zero Dark Thirty:

Zero Dark Thirty shows America swaggering and bragging, torturing and killing and proud of it. Americans love this shit because they have no empathy — they never imagine themselves on the receiving end of it. And they’re so damnably stupid and easy to manipulate that even when they are on the receiving end of it, as on 9/11, they don’t learn anything from it. Forget about any self-reflection as to why so many people in the world hate America. It was so easy for the ruling class to channel Americans’ bigotry onto Muslims and deflect away the normal healthy reaction of what should have been tremendous anger at the US government for not preventing 9/11 after all the trillions of dollars spent on “defense” and “security” and all the warnings from various other nations’ intelligence agencies. (Ralph Nader suggested four decades ago that cockpit doors on planes should be strengthened and locked. But what does he know compared to “bottom line” airline executives — he only gave us seat belts.) Three thousand people dead, a nation shellshocked and yet no one in our vast political/intelligence/military/surveillance state lost a day’s pay or got a reprimand. No one on top pays for anything in America whether it’s torture, financial fraud, illegal eavesdropping or negligent homicide. Zero Dark Thirty shows the incredible resources available to kill and destroy while Americans live in cardboard boxes in New York City and tents next to off-ramps in San Diego. A country whose infrastructure is so dilapidated that it’s not even safe for people to live under its bridges. A moral and social wasteland where more of its “true believers,” its trumpeted soldiers, kill themselves each year than are killed by its enemies. A country so fucked up, from its rotting Obama drone-head on down, that an increasing number of alienated citizens make their final statement the mass killing of total strangers, especially children. One great day it will be unanimous: three hundred million Americans will hate America.

As I have stated elsewhere, I believe that Osama bin Laden was more like Snowball of Animal Farm than Moby Dick, but the allusion to Captain Ahab's obsession is pretty damn appropriate.

And we all know what happened to Ahab.

Who's your daddy?

There are people who do not believe in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ. Some of their objections and theories can be found @
http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/biblianazar/esp_biblianazar_7.htm

There are people who do not believe that William Jefferson Blythe, Jr. was the father of President Bill Clinton. Some of their objections and theories can be found @
http://www.halfsigma.com/2009/04/bill-clintons-father.html

There also are people who do not believe that Barack Obama "Senior" is the father of President Barack Obama, including the man alleged to be his son. One of the theories can be found @
http://www.obamasrealfather.com/

I personally have no problem with the virgin birth of Jesus Christ. God is all powerful, and He can do whatever He wants.

What I find interesting in this situation is the following: it reminds me of the basic story line of The Boys from Brazil by Ira Levin. In Levin's book (and the movie on which it is based), the evil Dr. Josef Mengele clones Hitler's genetic material into multiple copies of Der Fuehrer. The cloned boys are then put by adoption into families similar to Hitler's, with a violent, drunken father and a passive, doting mother. At the right time, each of the fathers was to be killed to further mimic the conditions and events of Hitler's upbringing. The goal was to recreate "a Hitler for the 90s", or something like that.

Both Clinton and Obama had violent, drunken fathers. Both fathers abandoned the mother and son, and both died a violent, drunken death by auto accident (or so we are told).

I think it's not unreasonable that the faction of the ruling class that discovered and nurtured these two budding politicians and helped them become President may have been trying to create a "Boys from Brazil" outcome with Clinton and Obama.

But, unlike Jesus of Nazareth they were not the sons of Mary. No, these two men (or should we call them demons?) are more like Rosemary's baby ... the son of Satan.

Not yet a fire sale

Just watched (again) the movie "Live Free or Die Hard". It made me think about Anonymous and their recent threat, "This time there will be change, or there will be chaos ..." I don't know what that means, but if you've watched the fire sale unfold in the movie, you can probably imagine a few things they might do.

I got the impression that Anonymous is currently focusing on the so-called Department of Justice. Let's think about the system of "justice" in America for a minute:
  • The DOJ has run "operations" that give assault weapons to drug cartels.
  • More drug users than traffickers have been incarcerated.
  • And drugs are pouring in by the boat load.

Does it make sense that a "homeland security" system that can track every dime which might go to a Muslim charity cannot see BILLIONS of dollars of drug money pouring through our financial system like a fire hose?

Does it make sense that banks that are caught laundering drug money get off scot-free?

As Ani DiFranco once said,
"the old dogs have got a new trick
it's called criminalize the symptoms
while you spread the disease".

America is a criminal enterprise. Its "Justice Department" and so-called "law enforcement" agencies are part of the muscle which keeps this criminal enterprise functioning and which ensures that the right people make lots of money and never, ever go to jail.

I don't know what Anonymous will do, or when, or how; but I have to ask, "Is it possible that we would be better off if they did?" I do not support violence or disruption, but is it possible that our so-called enemies are people who are trying to show us the way to be truly free?

http://womenshistorymonth.wordpress.com/resources/women-and-series/women-and-activism/women-singing-activism/florence-reece/

I like Florence Reece's version of "Which side are you on?" better than Ani DiFranco's. I think Ani sidetracked into too many of the "-isms" in the system of fear, distrust, and envy which keeps us divided and powerless. Furthermore, if you understand the meaning of Audre Lorde's essay "The Master's Tools Will Never Dismantle The Master's House" you will realize that the criminal enterprise which is running this country cannot be voted out of office. Even if you succeed in replacing patriarchy with matriarchy, the criminal enterprise will remain. All that will change will be the gender of the arch criminals.

Wounded Knee

Today, just as yesterday, the United States is engaged in sociocide here and around the world:

I did not know then how much was ended. When I look back now from this high hill of my old age, I can still see the butchered women and children lying heaped and scattered all along the crooked gulch as plain as when I saw them with eyes still young. And I can see that something else died there in the bloody mud, and was buried in the blizzard. A people’s dream died there. It was a beautiful dream…
– Black Elk, at Wounded Knee

Read the full article @ http://dissidentvoice.org/2013/01/arizonas-testing-and-directives-to-navajo-people-the-pipeline-toward-cultural-genocide/#more-47433

Any person or group who wants to be different from whatever the United States dictates is isolated, attacked, and if necessary starved or beaten into submission. Those who fight back to preserve their God-given rights or their heritage are, like the American Indians or the people of Vietnam or Fallujah, Iraq subjected to horrific lasting war crimes to punish their unauthorized rebellion. And the process is carried out and/or witnessed by commissioned military officers who apparently relish what they do and see. Those guys in the photo don't seem at all ashamed of what they just did:


Those who pretend to be God may someday be punished by Him. Manifest Destiny? Are you kidding me?

What America does is murder, not war; and there is no statue of limitations on murder either here or in the hereafter.

Life after Chernobyl

Wildlife is thriving at Chernobyl:

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/life-after-chernobyl-sergei-gaschaks-photography-from-inside-the-zone-8467725.html

This suggests two things to me:
  • Humans are the biggest threat to life on this planet, and
  • Following our inevitable nuclear war, life will go on. We won't, but life will.

By the way, I once worked in a lab with contaminated soil from Chernobyl. The lab had the highest radiation level in the entire complex, but (at least so far) I didn't suffer any ill effects.

A line was crossed

A message from Anonymous follows:

Citizens of the world,
Anonymous has observed for some time now the trajectory of justice in the United States with growing concern. We have marked the departure of this system from the noble ideals in which it was born and enshrined. We have seen the erosion of due process, the dilution of constitutional rights, the usurpation of the rightful authority of courts by the "discretion" or prosecutors. We have seen how the law is wielded less and less to uphold justice, and more and more to exercise control, authority and power in the interests of oppression or personal gain.

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-205_162-57566003/hackers-take-over-govt-website-to-avenge-swartz/

It seems to me that the main purpose of the United States today is to serve as an example of what NOT to be. It also seems very sad and strange to me that most Americans do not realize that this has happened.

How did we get this way? For one possible explanation, see my blog post "Have we failed?" from earlier today.

A version of the Anonymous message is @ http://polizeros.com/2013/01/26/anonymous-a-line-was-crossed-with-aaron-swartz-retaliation-coming/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+PoliticsInTheZeros+(Politics+in+the+Zeros)

A text version of the message follows (borrowed from http://pastebin.com/Ux2B0L5E):

----STATEMENT FROM U S S C dot GOV IN RESPONSE TO DEATH OF AARON SWARTZ----
Citizens of the world,
Anonymous has observed for some time now the trajectory of justice in the United States with growing concern. We have marked the departure of this system from the noble ideals in which it was born and enshrined. We have seen the erosion of due process, the dilution of constitutional rights, the usurpation of the rightful authority of courts by the "discretion" of prosecutors. We have seen how the law is wielded less and less to uphold justice, and more and more to exercise control, authority and power in the interests of oppression or personal gain.
We have been watching, and waiting.
Two weeks ago today, a line was crossed. Two weeks ago today, Aaron Swartz was killed. Killed because he faced an impossible choice. Killed because he was forced into playing a game he could not win -- a twisted and distorted perversion of justice -- a game where the only winning move was not to play.
Anonymous immediately convened an emergency council to discuss our response to this tragedy. After much heavy-hearted discussion, the decision was upheld to engage the United States Department of Justice and its associated executive branches in a game of a similar nature, a game in which the only winning move is not to play.
Last year the Federal Bureau of Investigation revelled in porcine glee at its successful infiltration of certain elements of Anonymous. This infiltration was achieved through the use of the same tactics which lead to Aaron Swartz' death. It would not have been possible were it not for the power of federal prosecutors to thoroughly destroy the lives of any hacktivists they apprehend through the very real threat of highly disproportionate sentencing.
As a result of the FBI's infiltration and entrapment tactics, several more of our brethren now face similar disproportionate persecution, the balance of their lives hanging on the severely skewed scales of a broken justice system.
We have felt within our hearts a burning rage in reaction to these events, but we have not allowed ourselves to be drawn into a foolish and premature response. We have bidden our time, operating in the shadows, adapting our tactics and honing our abilities. We have allowed the FBI and its masters in government -- both the puppet and the shadow government that controls it -- to believe they had struck a crippling blow to our infrastructure, that they had demoralized us, paralysed us with paranoia and fear. We have held our tongue and waited.
With Aaron's death we can wait no longer. The time has come to show the United States Department of Justice and its affiliates the true meaning of infiltration. The time has come to give this system a taste of its own medicine. The time has come for them to feel the helplessness and fear that comes with being forced into a game where the odds are stacked against them.
This website was chosen due to the symbolic nature of its purpose -- the federal sentencing guidelines which enable prosecutors to cheat citizens of their constitutionally-guaranteed right to a fair trial, by a jury of their peers -- the federal sentencing guidelines which are in clear violation of the 8th amendment protection against cruel and unusual punishments. This website was also chosen due to the nature of its visitors. It is far from the only government asset we control, and we have exercised such control for quite some time...
There has been a lot fuss recently in the technological media regarding such operations as Red October, the widespread use of vulnerable browsers and the availability of zero-day exploits for these browsers and their plugins. None of this comes of course as any surprise to us, but it is perhaps good that those within the information security industry are making the extent of these threats more widely understood.
Still there is nothing quite as educational as a well-conducted demonstration...
Through this website and various others that will remain unnamed, we have been conducting our own infiltration. We did not restrict ourselves like the FBI to one high-profile compromise. We are far more ambitious, and far more capable. Over the last two weeks we have wound down this operation, removed all traces of leakware from the compromised systems, and taken down the injection apparatus used to detect and exploit vulnerable machines.
We have enough fissile material for multiple warheads. Today we are launching the first of these. Operation Last Resort has begun...
Warhead - U S - D O J - L E A - 2013 . A E E 256 is primed and armed. It has been quietly distributed to numerous mirrors over the last few days and is available for download from this website now. We encourage all Anonymous to syndicate this file as widely as possible.
The contents are various and we won't ruin the speculation by revealing them. Suffice it to say, everyone has secrets, and some things are not meant to be public. At a regular interval commencing today, we will choose one media outlet and supply them with heavily redacted partial contents of the file. Any media outlets wishing to be eligible for this program must include within their reporting a means of secure communications.
We have not taken this action lightly, nor without consideration of the possible consequences. Should we be forced to reveal the trigger-key to this warhead, we understand that there will be collateral damage. We appreciate that many who work within the justice system believe in those principles that it has lost, corrupted, or abandoned, that they do not bear the full responsibility for the damages caused by their occupation.
It is our hope that this warhead need never be detonated.
However, in order for there to be a peaceful resolution to this crisis, certain things need to happen. There must be reform of outdated and poorly-envisioned legislation, written to be so broadly applied as to make a felony crime out of violation of terms of service, creating in effect vast swathes of crimes, and allowing for selective punishment. There must be reform of mandatory minimum sentencing. There must be a return to proportionality of punishment with respect to actual harm caused, and consideration of motive and mens rea. The inalienable right to a presumption of innocence and the recourse to trial and possibility of exoneration must be returned to its sacred status, and not gambled away by pre-trial bargaining in the face of overwhelming sentences, unaffordable justice and dis-favourable odds. Laws must be upheld unselectively, and not used as a weapon of government to make examples of those it deems threatening to its power.
For good reason the statue of lady justice is blindfolded. No more should her innocence be besmirked, her scales tipped, nor her swordhand guided. Furthermore there must be a solemn commitment to freedom of the internet, this last great common space of humanity, and to the common ownership of information to further the common good.
We make this statement do not expect to be negotiated with; we do not desire to be negotiated with. We understand that due to the actions we take we exclude ourselves from the system within which solutions are found. There are others who serve that purpose, people far more respectable than us, people whose voices emerge from the light, and not the shadows. These voices are already making clear the reforms that have been necessary for some time, and are outright required now.
It is these people that the justice system, the government, and law enforcement must engage with. Their voices are already ringing strong with a chorus of determined resolution. We demand only that this chorus is not ignored. We demand the government does not make the mistake of hoping that time will dampen its ringing, that they can ride out this wave of determination, that business as usual can continue after a sufficient period of lip-service and back-patting.
Not this time. This time there will be change, or there will be chaos... <timed to end of launch animation scene, nuclear explosion>

We hereby issue a call out, an invitation to all who have a stake in justice and a better tomorrow. A line has been drawn in the sand. We invite you to take a stand and participate in the ongoing dialogue from which a solution can and must emerge. As you are viewing this message, groups around the planet are forming to collaborate on the work ahead. If you lack organisation, now is the time to organise. If you lack direction, now is the time to seek it. If your voice is unheard, now is the time to join it to other voices, and let their combined volume be impossible to shut out.

Perhaps it is time for everyone to stop playing this game.

Have we failed?

Lots of people are now saying that America has failed. Here's an example:

http://www.counterpunch.org/2013/01/25/democracy-in-america/

I give no credence to any such theory that does not include an analysis of how "our" ruling class and their one percent collaborators have worked so hard to alter her to their liking and/or destroy her.

If we have failed (and it seems just a matter of time), this is the chief reason.

Despicable crooks are still running this world and as Malcolm X understood too well, their media servants in all languages work over time to make us love the crooks and hate their victims.

I think what the despicable crooks (NATO) are trying to do this time is to destroy the independence of Syria in every way. Once the Syrian people are starved into submission, whatever remains of their economy can be turned over for looting by the vultures of the neoliberal agenda.

Poverty in Detroit

This is the result of neoliberalism and globalization of the economy:

http://detroit.cbslocal.com/2013/01/24/report-childhood-poverty-high-in-detroit-but-teen-pregnancy-down/

It would be nice if the thugs meeting in Davos would promote policies which REDUCED childhood poverty worldwide, but they seem to be doing the opposite.

I'm sure THEIR children are well fed.

It's all about Hillary

Now, here's a window on the administration:

http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/national/bindi-irwin-frustrated-over-hillary-clinton-office-article-revision/story-fndo48ca-1226561277786

This makes me wonder whether the kids Obama ad-Dajjal hid behind in cowardly fashion to promote gun control had THEIR letters edited too.

What justice? What honor?

There is no question that the CIA has tortured lots of people in the last 11 years. Now it turns out that the only CIA man who will be punished as a result is the one who tried to blow the whistle on what was happening:

http://www.seattlepi.com/news/crime/article/Ex-CIA-man-Kiriakou-gets-2-years-for-leaks-4222528.php

Is that justice? Not in my book.

I believe that as a result of the military coup which took place on 9/11/2001, both George W. Bush and Obama ad-Dajjal have given the CIA free rein to essentially do whatever they want. (See also my 1/12/2013 blog post "When did the coup take place?")

I recommend that everyone, especially military officers on active duty, listen to and/or read General Douglas MacArthur's farewell address at West Point (Sylvanus Thayer Award Acceptance Address). You can find it @
http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/douglasmacarthurthayeraward.html

Among the key words of his address are the following:

You are the leaven which binds together the entire fabric of our national system of defense. From your ranks come the great captains who hold the nation's destiny in their hands the moment the war tocsin sounds. The Long Gray Line has never failed us. Were you to do so, a million ghosts in olive drab, in brown khaki, in blue and gray, would rise from their white crosses thundering those magic words: Duty, Honor, Country.

The military coup of 9/11/2001 and the political assassinations which proceeded it were only able to succeed because the military either participated directly or at the very least acquiesced in what others did. Nearly every act of torture carried out by the CIA was witnessed by military officers. That the generals put their own careers ahead of the honor of their country is an act bordering on treason.

There are no others who could stop the insanity currently going on in this nation. They fact that they either will not or cannot means that we have no hope. When Obama ad-Dajjal sends men to take away your guns, the military will be there to shoot you if you do not comply.

I see those ghosts rising up, don't you? Unfortunately, the graduates of West Point apparently cannot.

What's with the glasses?

Did you notice Hillary's coke-bottle glasses?

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/hillary-double-mrs-clinton-specs-hint-impairment-article-1.1247375

Maybe they're sooper-dooper Google glasses with built-in teleprompters. Or which give her x-ray vision or super intelligence. Or something like that.

I wish her well, but I'll never vote for her for any reason. I'm not against having a woman President, but she is WAY too creepy for my taste.

Guns for them, spears for us

Diane Feinstein wants to exempt her pals from the new gun control laws:

http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/feinstein-gun-control-bill-exempt-government-officials_697732.html

Wasn't that the plan all along: a well-armed government and a disarmed population?

You go, girl ... to hell!

We're destroying our planet

Good article by Paul Craig Roberts that somewhat mimics my 1/8/2013 blog post "Frigging Fracking":

http://www.counterpunch.org/2013/01/25/natures-capital-is-the-limiting-resource/

I heard the shots, honest!

Maybe it was just static in his hearing aids:

And this guy is going to run for President? Against Hillary?

I wanna

I wanna be an astronaut.

No, wait; I wanna be a Senator.

No, wait; I wanna be President.

Why do you all hate me?

Okay, it's only one fly. But you get the idea.


More 9/11 Truth

A weasel's lexicon

Keep this handy for the next time Obama ad-Dajjal or Hillary the Harpy makes a public address:

http://dissidentvoice.org/2013/01/a-leaders-lexicon-for-the-21st-century/#more-47380

It may not be as useful for Biden, since he usually makes things up as he goes.

Corporations are not people

And comedians should not be Senators:

http://www.alfranken.com/index.php/splash/w1210cu/g?gclid=CIn5t9z2_rQCFayPPAodn2IAGA

I tend to agree with Al on this. Like people, corporations have a mind and a body; but unlike people they do not have a heart or a soul. But I don't think he is correct on the details.

I think Citizens United recognized that corporations are "persons", not "people". When the term "person" is used in the US Constitution, it includes individual people AND the several States. If a State is a person, then why can't a corporation be a person? Both are formed by associations of people, self-organized according to rules established by an existing sovereign.

And in reality these new persons (corporations) always have had and will continue to have immense power. Many of them have cash flows greater than all but a few nations in the world. I believe they own the world (financially), and they will soon officially run it (politically): when "market-states" replace nation-states as the world's preeminent powers.

The transition is right around the corner, as soon as the bankers and THEIR corporations finish driving the nation-states into poverty.

We shall have world government whether or not you like it - by conquest or consent.
James Warburg

Getting down at the White House

Four more years of partying for them. What do the rest of us get?

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2266818/Obama-inauguration-2013-Lady-Gaga-performs-Tony-Bennett-exclusive-inaugural-ball-White-House-staffers.html

I wonder if Lady Gaga has a "drone" bra with Hellfire missiles? That would be cool.

More media mendacity

It did not take long for the so-called mainstream media to discover the 27th Amendment to the Constitution:

http://news.yahoo.com/27th-amendment-gets-publicity-budget-battle-111609688.html

I want to know when they're going to discover the due process clause of the 5th Amendment and start holding Obama ad-Dajjal and John Brennan accountable for their "kill list".

I also want to know when they're going to discover the rules of evidence clauses of the 6th Amendment and start questioning the use of secret "evidence" and hidden "witnesses", and the lack of compulsory process in obtaining witnesses for the defense.

More Congressional baloney

So-called Democrats in Congress are urging the President to bypass Congress on the debt ceiling issue. They supposedly believe that the 14th Amendment allows him to do this. Here's the text to which they refer:

The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned.

I believe the relevant phrase is "public debt of the United States, authorized by law". Since there is a legal debt ceiling, no debt in excess of that ceiling would in fact be authorized by law.

Clearly, Obama ad-Dajjal and his so-called Democrat supporters either have not read, do not understand, and/or refuse to follow the US Constitution.

Who elected these clowns?

I have a dream vs. I have a drone

Both Glenn Greenwald and Norman Solomon agree with my recent blog posts on the differences between Dr. Martin Luther King and Obama ad-Dajjal, and allow me to point out that they both said it more eloquently than did I:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2013/jan/21/king-obama-drones-militarism-sanctions-iran

http://theava.com/archives/19725

The distortion of Dr. King's legacy kind of reminds me of the difference between Jesus and Christianity: we have distorted the legacy of Jesus in a similar manner. Many Americans harbor the fantasy that we are a Christian nation, but no one who truly understands the Gospels could ever accept that what we are doing is right. This makes me believe that the following scripture was meant for us:

Because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 KJV

God's servant Martin spoke the truthful words of Jesus; Satan's servant Obama ad-Dajjal speaks the lying words of his father. Note well which words Americans find more pleasing to their ears.

I find it very difficult to believe that we are God's beloved. Not only does He disapprove of what we are doing, He is giving us all the rope we need to hang ourselves, along with the strong delusion necessary to get us to put our necks into the noose.

Bomber-in-Chief

How could this man have even been considered for a Nobel Peace Prize? They should take it back.

http://www.alternet.org/world/bomber-chief-20000-airstrikes-presidents-first-term-cause-death-and-destruction-iraq-somalia

20,000 airstrikes? If you believe the bullshit that these are all "precision strikes", we must have killed a whole lot of al-Qaeda dudes, right?

According to Sibel Edmonds, the answer is NO:

http://www.veteranstoday.com/2011/08/06/exactly-how-big-is-this-so-called-al-qaeda/

So just what the fuck is Obama ad-Dajjal doing? And just whom is he killing? And why?

What do you mean you don't know? You clowns re-elected him, didn't you?

On the basis of the available objective evidence, there is no al-Qaeda. There probably never was. We've been chasing invisible bogeymen for over eleven years. That's why all this "evidence" is kept top secret: because there is no fucking evidence.

Like I said before, Osama bin Laden was Snowball. Once you understand that, you should be able to see what's been going on.

The human plague

Sir Richard Attenborough says we are a "plague":

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/earthnews/9815862/Humans-are-plague-on-Earth-Attenborough.html

As I suggested in my 1/16/2013 blog post "Should we trust the one percent?", if we cannot control ourselves the ruling class is going to have us killed.

Human activities are (supposedly) the most important causes of climate change. Could it be that Obama ad-Dajjal's promise to combat climate change is actually a promise to start killing us?

It's certainly possible: this is a man who already has a "kill list" and who clearly is a servant of the ruling class.

By the way, the recent ascendancy of matriarchy has nothing to do with a desire for gender "equality". It's based on the belief that if women are in charge, the human birth rate will go down. The ruling class does not give a shit if there is a "glass ceiling", they just don't want the great unwashed masses shitting in their cereal bowl. That's also why America is on a crusade against Islam, whose followers have one of the highest birth rates in the world.

Considering all that, it's reasonable to believe that "climate change" is just a fairy tale concocted to give the ruling class another excuse to rein us in and kill us. Think about it: it certainly makes sense.

Déjà vu, all over again

Leon Panetta vows "revenge" against al-Qaeda:

http://news.antiwar.com/2013/01/21/panetta-vows-us-revenge-against-al-qaeda-after-algeria-siege/

Compare Panetta's words to those of Bobby Kennedy (see my 1/21/2013 blog post "RFK's speech about the killing of MLK").

The reborn President Obama ad-Dajjal vows a continuing US global military presence:

http://news.antiwar.com/2013/01/21/obama-inaugural-speech-us-to-maintain-global-military-presence/

Looks like four more years (at least) of the same horse shit, served with different spices and garnishes. Militarism and combating climate change will suck up every penny these clowns can squeeze out of us, leaving nothing for social programs and the people's safety net. For anyone to suggest that Dr. King and Obama ad-Dajjal have anything in common is a sad, sick joke.

It seems to me like the ruling class has saddled us with problems which CANNOT be solved, allowing them to live handsomely from our efforts from now till Kingdom Come (which, by the way, may be our only real hope). Like Sisyphus, we're doomed to keep pushing the boulder up the hill, only to watch it roll back down so we have to start all over again.

Are we stupid or what? Does anyone other than me think we need to stop doing the same old shit over and over again?

Pay for it yourself!

The super-rich meet at Davos to decide how best to rob us this time:

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/davos-call-for-14trn-greening--of-global-economy-8460994.html

Hey assholes, if you want a green economy pay for it yourself! You've already got all our money.

The American Way

The Obamas have figured out how to play America: imitate the rich, fuck the poor.

The King is dead; long live the King.

Cloning Neanderthals?

I don't think this is a good idea:

http://www.foxnews.com/science/2013/01/21/scientist-seeks-adventurous-woman-to-have-neanderthal-baby/


Duh, Mr. Harvard MD, did you ever read Jurassic Park or watch the movie? Our ancestors exterminated the Neanderthals. If you bring them back, don't you think they might return the favor?


This is nearly as dumb as the project to create autonomous battlefield robots. Didn't those DARPA guys ever watch The Terminator? (I think they did, and they must have liked the outcome.)


http://www.strategypage.com/htmw/htinf/articles/20090930.aspx

A Presidential Fairy Tale

You can read Obama ad-Dajjal's second Presidential Fairy Tale @ http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2013/01/21/inaugural-address-president-barack-obama

It is pure, unadulterated horse shit. Nearly every word he said has been repudiated by his actions over the past four years. Does he want us to believe that this is a brand new Obama ad-Dajjal?

Look back on this moment every day of the next four years to see how many more promises he can break.

And why two Bibles? He could swear on a stack of them and I still would not believe a word he says.

Of course, he does have the perfect excuse: the oath contains the disclaimer "to the best of my Ability", and clearly he's been doing the best he can.

RFK's speech about the killing of MLK

Once Dr. King and Senator Kennedy had been killed, there was no one left who could even try to heal the deep wounds in the American psyche which had been opened by the assassination of John Kennedy:

http://youtu.be/j6mxL2cqxrA

That is precisely why they were killed.

The Promised Land

Here is the conclusion of Dr. King's final speech, in which he seems to anticipate his own death:

http://youtu.be/Oehry1JC9Rk

Does anyone think that the America of today, with Obama ad-Dajjal as President, is the Promised Land?

Surely God wants more than smoldering racism, extreme materialism, and rampant militarism for His people.

Sadly, we are all still wandering in the Wilderness, and Obama ad-Dajjal is no Moses.

(If you have the time, the full speech is worth listening to @ http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/mlkivebeentothemountaintop.htm).
