Debunking the Myth of American Exceptionalism


Duty to Warn

new-logo25kohlsGary G. Kohls, MD




The myth of American Exceptionalism is widely, but perhaps insincerely, believed by most American thought-leaders and political and economic elites, whether they are radical Republican Party members/voters or are members/voters of the moderate “Republican” wing of the Democratic Party.

Members of the democratic wing of the Democratic Party and anybody that espouses Green Party values (whether they are registered members or not) are skeptical of the mass media’s constant reportage on American Exceptionalism.

Oh, America is certainly an exceptional nation, all right, but the reality is that most of the evidence of exceptionalism should be sources of sorrow, shame and embarrassment. All American patriots, including the pseudo-patriots who espouse the classical fascist/nationalist notion of “My nation, right or wrong”, should be on their knees repenting of what America has done on behalf of that misbegotten belief, starting with the “patriotic” genocidal massacres of the aboriginal Native Americans, the quasi-genocide of America’s African slaves, the Monroe Doctrine and Manifest Destiny.

Take the fact that America leads the world in the percentage – and total numbers – of its citizens that are incarcerated (and that includes the statistics from such previously totalitarian communist nations (and now newly capitalist) such as  the USSR, Russia and China).

priosn map
America is – embarrassingly so – exceptional in one major area. It leads the world in military expenditures, spending approximately the same amount that the rest of the world combined spends, despite the fact that there are no nations that have the naval, air or land combat capabilities that could repel or withstand even a single day of full-fledged American military assault (for which the Pentagon probably already has contingency plans). Every American Special Forces soldier knows in his heart of hearts that, compared to his highly lethal, highly trained killing unit, Nazi Germany’s Wehrmacht soldiers and Luftwaffe airmen were pussies.

Exceptional America, With 5% of the World’s Population, Spends more on Militarism Than the Rest of the World Combined

America’s political elites represent only 5% of the world’s population, and yet, because of the Myth of American Exceptionalism, they act like they deserve to rule the world. If the truth were to be told, American politicians are often the laughingstock of the rest of the developed world because of their obvious historical illiteracy and their moral imbecility. Showing no humility or self-understanding, most self-deluded, bullying political candidates (watch any GOP presidential debate for proof) still believe that, because of America’s military and economic power, Americans are somehow exceptional. (These over-privileged millionaire candidates were, as the old saying goes, “born on third base and think that they just hit a triple”.) More

Guest will be: Midge Grinstead- Kansas Senior State Director – The Humane Society of the United States

There are three issues Midge Grinstead has worked on last legislated session: SB 97 was a bad bill allowing human contact with big cats 40 lbs and under and de-listing Clouded Leopards from the dangerous regulated animals act. Midge also worked on an exotic bill to add non-human primates and wolves to the dangerous regulated animals act (HB2737)

The other bill was brought forth from the Dept of Agriculture and updated the Kansas . Pet Animal Act including banning CO chambers, allowing shelters to do mobile adoptions and giving the rescue groups representation on the board as well as many other positive changes for animal welfare like having water available to all animals under the pet animal act. This bill was supported by the Kansas Pet Animal Coalition, large and small animal welfare groups, the Kansas Animal Control Association and many others.


The Humane Society of the United States is the nation’s largest animal protection organization, rated most effective by our peers. For 60 years, HSUS have celebrated the protection of all animals and confronted all forms of cruelty. HSUS is the nation’s largest provider of hands-on service for animals, caring for more than 100,000 animals each year, and HSUS prevent cruelty to millions more through our advocacy campaigns.

The Official Version of 9/11 goes something like this:

Source: The Official Version of 9/11 goes something like this:

The Official Version of 9/11 goes something like this:


Dr. Paul Craig Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy and associate editor of the Wall Street Journal. He was columnist for Business Week, Scripps Howard News Service, and Creators Syndicate. He has had many university appointments. His internet columns have attracted a worldwide following. Roberts’ latest books are The Failure of Laissez Faire Capitalism and Economic Dissolution of the West and How America Was Lost.


The Official Version of 9/11 goes something like this:

Directed by a beardy-guy from a cave in Afghanistan, nineteen hard-drinking, coke-snorting, devout Muslims enjoy lap dances before their mission to meet Allah. Using nothing more than craft knifes, they overpower cabin crew, passengers and pilots on four planes.

And hangover or not, they manage to give the world’s most sophisticated air defence system the slip.

Unfazed by leaving their “How to Fly a Passenger Jet” guide in the car at the airport, they master the controls in no-time and score direct hits on two towers, causing THREE to collapse completely.

The laws of physics fail, and the world watches in awe as asymmetrical damage and scattered low temperature fires cause steel-framed buildings to collapse symmetrically through their own mass at free-fall speed, for the first time in history.

Despite their dastardly cunning and superb planning, they give their identity away by using explosion-proof passports, which survive the destruction of steel and concrete and fall to the ground where they are quickly discovered lying on top of the mass of debris.

Meanwhile in Washington…………………

Hani Hanjour, having previously flunked Cessna flying school, gets carried away with all the success of the day and suddenly finds incredible abilities behind the controls of a jet airliner. Instead of flying straight down into the large roof area of the Pentagon, he decides to show off a little. Executing an incredible 270 degree downward spiral, he levels off to hit the low facade of the Pentagon. Without ruining the nicely mowed lawn and at a speed just too fast to capture on video.

In the skies above Pennsylvania……………………….

Desperate to talk to loved ones before their death, some passengers use sheer willpower to connect mobile calls that would not be possible until several years later.

During these events………………………………………….

President Bush continues to read “My Pet Goat” to a class of primary school children.

In New York……………………………………………………..

World Trade Center leaseholder Larry Silverstein blesses his own foresight in insuring the buildings against terrorist attack only six weeks previously.

In Washington……………………………………………………

The Neoconservatives are overjoyed by the arrival of the “New Pearl Harbor,” the necessary catalyst for launching their pre-planned wars.

Duty to Warn: The PNAC Perpetrators of 9/11/01 Speak Out

Duty to Warn

new-logo25kohls Gary G. Kohls, MD


clip_image002[2] 111The arrow in the above photo points to an explosive “squib” that proves that there were pre-planted explosive devices used to sever the massive internal steel beams so that the doomed building will collapse down entirely into its own footprint, thereby minimizing the damage to adjacent buildings (the goal of every controlled demolition). Note that chunks of the steel girders have been thrown upwards and outwards at high speeds due to the power of the explosive devices that had been planted in the buildings for weeks prior to the demolitions by unknown co-conspirators. Everything else was pulverized into fine dust.


“You unpatriotic ‘9/11 Truthers’ can have annual conspiracy conventions on 9/11, with a host of speakers. To use a Russian expression, the dogs may bark as the train roars along. You are the dogs, and we are the train. Keep whining. We will keep on declaring ourselves unconvinced. We still own the TV, we still own the military, and you can chatter on the internet all you want as you fade into ineffectual obscurity.”Tongue-in-cheek satirie from fellow 9/11 Truth-seeker Greg Ziegler PhD, a former US Military Intel officer and retired professor, whose commentary inspired this colum

This week will mark the 14th anniversary of 9/11/01 and the beginning of America’s bankrupting endless war against any and all so-called foreign enemies that, in the opinion of the ruling elites, need to have their sovereign nations de-stabilized so that various economic and corporate predators can gain access to the resources of the region.

Thousands of ethical, intelligent, scholarly, science-based, peace-loving, truth-seeking and once patriotic researchers (seeing through the absurd conclusions widely promulgated starting on 9/11/01) have endured far too many years of black-listings by those who really know better – namely our willfully ignorant (or frankly deceptive) ruling elites (of both political parties) and their co-opted co-conspirators in the mass media who have obediently enforced the black-listings.

Galileo was a Fellow Truth–teller

Those of us who consider ourselves honorable 9/11 Truth-seekers understand how Galileo Galilei felt when his scientifically provable truth (that the earth revolved around the sun) was brutally suppressed by the ruling clerical elites of the 16th century.

Of course his run-in with church authorities was partly incited because he couldn’t refrain from pointing out that, because of his astronomical findings, he had proof that certain passages in the Bible couldn’t be true, thus claiming that the Bible was not inerrant. Cognitive dissonance erupted in the Vatican, and Galileo was declared a heretic and an enemy of the church. His books were banned, he was forbidden by the Inquisition to teach his “heresy” and he was placed under house arrest for the rest of his life. It took 4 centuries for the church to admit its error, thus inadvertently admitting that the Bible was not inerrant.

The enforced silence by the mass media concerning the Crime and Cover-up of the Century (the events of 9/11/01) should have been over long ago, that is, if there was any justice in this nation.

Is Courageous Investigative Journalism Dead?

If real investigative journalism was still alive and kicking in our corporatized, for profit media environment, and if exposing Big Lies was still regarded as important in our dying democracy, the black-listing of 9/11 truth-seekers and the court of law-worthy evidence that they have collected would have been celebrated and not denigrated.

But the absurd official, media-blessed version of what happened on 9/11/01 has been proven to be totally false and the consequences of the failure of our (mis-)leaders to admit that they have been bamboozled by the Big Lie have been devastating to the world. The consequences of the illegal and fraudulent invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq, orchestrated under the guise of several Big Lies by the Cheney/Bush administration are still being played out in the millions of war refugees in the region that are desperately trying to leave the war-torn nations that the Pentagon helped to destabilize.

The endless wars that began in earnest after 9/11, and the constitution-shredding Patriot Acts and Homeland Security Act, had all been planned long before the three towers came down, and the recurring wars of retaliation (“Saddam tried to kill my daddy” – G. W. Bush) and resource theft (OIL = Operation Iraq Liberation) had likewise been planned ahead of time. Critics of American imperialism totally understand that “Great Satans” make good use of “Big Lies”.

The millions of whistle-blowers among us who have done the deep thinking, the heavy work and the research into what REALLY happened on 9/11 (and why) have become disillusioned with many previously respected politicians (of both political parties) who have run away from the unwelcome truths about the Crime and Cover-u of the Century. I have long wondered what could be wrong with those that accuse me and my 9/11 Truth-seeking colleagues of being lunatic, low-life “conspiracy theorists”.

The PNAC, the Real Conspiratorial Group that Needs to be Subpoenaed

On Thursday, August 27, the Nevada County, CA., Planning Kingdom played host to a packed house of a very concerned crowd who’s 95% majority explained why they were not at all interested in a state mandated stack n’ pack, high density housing element with no discretionary action attached.  With the exception of one of four persons on the panel, the Planning Commission, who is appointed by the county, took on their usual stance of filescacoaali“formality” while reluctantly listening to a truck load of persons who voiced their total dissatisfaction with a not so smart city agenda that, in theory, was previously cut in stone
and decided before hand.  And yes, the Planning Commission, despite a train load of objections, voted three out of four to go forward with a yes vote and rubber stamp the housing blanket proposal, sending it to the supervisors for the next vote.    

What was the main beef of the people?  It was a 699 unit “housing element” fiasco with no “human element” considered except that the people would be “close to stores, fire protection, a hospital and services.” 

Welcome to “Detroit” and another mega meltdown loaded with the usual turmoil, drugs and crime. 

And when the question came addressing who might be living in these high density arrangements, in the end, planning had no answer.  This calls for a further investigation and here is something that just might stir up your senses.     

The federal government and the White House has a “diversification blueprint” for affirmative and alternative living.  The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is ready to “re-engineer” your neighborhood, but remember, it’s for the “good of the whole.”   In other words, the feds are on a manifesto mission to collectivize and micromanage public housing and zoning and change the socioeconomic, racial, religious and ethnic mixture of nearly every American neighborhood, regardless of sexual orientation, public input or individual rights.  And this is the grand wisdom offered for a smart city.  But don’t forget, before these units are built, there are project impacts, studies, environmental concerns, air quality analysis, greenhouse gas, complicated mitigation aspects and more.

And who’s paying for all of this? 

The head planner explained that it will be none other than the taxpayers.  Welcome to the green $$ zone.

But there’s more.    

1,250 municipalities across the land of the of the “free”, will be asked to “diversify” their neighborhoods or risk losing HUD’s housing manna.  Well, doesn’t that just take all.  Karl Marx would be thrilled beyond measure with this angle.  But, you say that you are
opposed to mixing good ole suburbia and rural America with a notorious urban living arrangement which is mostly consistent in larger cities?  Yes, that is all well and good, however, Washington D.C. and the State of California is not interested in your opinion
and they are already embarking upon a general plan using more of your “grant money”  to mix and transform America’s neighborhoods.  Now, take note of this next statement.

“Putting decisions about how local communities are run in the hands of federal bureaucrats is an assault on freedom. Local autonomy is essential to liberty.”   Marc A.
Thiessen; Washington Post, 6/7/15    

So, this calls for wisdom. 

Don’t wait for HUD, the state, or our elected county supervisors and community development planners to redesign a neighborhood that may be mostly free from drugs and crime.  Just make sure the idea never gets off the ground.  Begin to educate administrators about the dangers of in-culturating unstable, hostile and rebellious people into an already stable and peaceful environment, because in the end, HUD and/or the state with their mandates, will destroy a stable community to where it will become infected with the same mega problems that already plague major cities.  If we recall, the same people who came to us with the “let it burn” forestry mismanagement polices and the thousands of factory closures are also the very same people who will bring us a re-engineered neighborhood that will destroy itself quite rapidly.

We are no longer talking about the “housing element.”  We are quite  frankly talking about the “human element.”

or listen to the show live on your phone by calling (917) 388-4520.

You can call in with questions during the 2nd half hour of the show by dialing (917) 388-4520, then pressing 1.

This is a 1 hour show.  It will be archived so you can listen to it anytime.


Our guest tonight is Sinikka Crosland, Exec. Dir. of Canadian Horse Defence Coalition, people and national groups that have joined together to ban the slaughter of equines for human consumption in Canada, as well as the export of live horses to other countries for the same purpose.

Sinikka will talk about horse slaughter in Canada, and the  7,000 horses transported live by air  from Canada to Japan each year for slaughter.  3 or 4 large horses are crammed in wooden crates with little room to move around, let alone lie down to rest.  No food or water is provided during the grueling journey to another continent.  Canadian legislation permits horses to be transported without food and water for up to 36 hours, but sometimes, due to flight delays, the 36-hour period is breached.

The carrier responsible for shipping these horses to their deaths is Atlas Air, Inc., based in Purchase, New York.

Sheep Led to the Slaughter: The Muzzling of Free Speech in America


John W. Whitehead

September 01, 2015

“If the freedom of speech be taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”—George Washington

The architects of the American police state must think we’re idiots.

With every passing day, we’re being moved further down the road towards a totalitarian society characterized by government censorship, violence, corruption, hypocrisy and intolerance, all packaged for our supposed benefit in the Orwellian doublespeak of national security, tolerance and so-called “government speech.”

Long gone are the days when advocates of free speech could prevail in a case such as Tinker v. Des Moines. Indeed, it’s been 50 years since 13-year-old Mary Beth Tinker was suspended for wearing a black armband to school in protest of the Vietnam War. In taking up her case, the U.S. Supreme Court declared that students do not “shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate.”

Were Tinker to make its way through the courts today, it would have to overcome the many hurdles being placed in the path of those attempting to voice sentiments that may be construed as unpopular, offensive, conspiratorial, violent, threatening or anti-government.

Consider, if you will, that the U.S. Supreme Court, historically a champion of the First Amendment, has declared that citizens can exercise their right to free speech everywhere it’s lawful—online, in social media, on a public sidewalk, etc.—as long as they don’t do so in front of the Court itself.

What is the rationale for upholding this ban on expressive activity on the Supreme Court plaza?

“Allowing demonstrations directed at the Court, on the Court’s own front terrace, would tend to yield the…impression…of a Court engaged with — and potentially vulnerable to — outside entreaties by the public.”

Translation: The appellate court that issued that particular ruling in Hodge v. Talkin actually wants us to believe that the Court is so impressionable that the justices could be swayed by the sight of a single man, civil rights activist Harold Hodge, standing alone and silent in the snow in a 20,000 square-foot space in front of the Supreme Court building wearing a small sign protesting the toll the police state is taking on the lives of black and Hispanic Americans.

My friends, we’re being played for fools. More

Medicare Pay for Performance—Fighting a War That’s Already Over

1 Comment

new-logo25Gerard Gianoli, M.D., F.A.C.S.

“In 1814, we took a little trip, along with Colonel Jackson, down the mighty Mississip….”

Like any good student growing up in New Orleans, I learned about the magnificent victory of the U.S. forces over the British in the Battle of New Orleans during the War of 1812. Of course, the Treaty of Ghent ended the War of 1812 before the Battle of New Orleans was even fought. Many have argued that the battle was useless since the war was already over. However, this is not the first or last time that governments have pursued “useless” enterprises.

Government central planning fosters this type of ineptitude. By its design, government is a slow-moving entity that often makes changes only long after that change has become obsolete. This is the nature of government, and it does not matter whether the occupants of the Oval Office or Congress have an “R” or a “D” after their names.

Recently, legislation passed as part of the “Doc Fix” (repealing the “SGR” physician pay cuts) institutionalized a physician Pay-for-Performance (P4P Medicare program called Merit-Based Payment Incentive System (MIPS).) The idea is to pay bonuses to physicians providing higher quality care.

Let’s make the highly dubious assumptions that government can measure quality in medical care and that such a system won’t just lead to “cherry picking” of patients. MIPS still won’t work to identify and reward “quality” physicians with bonuses. Why? Like in 1814, the government is fighting a war that is already over. More
