Duty to Warn

“Violence can only be concealed by a lie, and the lie can only be maintained by violence. Any man (or nation) who has once proclaimed violence as his method is inevitably forced to take the lie as his principle.” Alexander Solzhenitsyn

So it seems that all the Republicans running for president (and their supporters) are ignorant about the root causes of “radicalization” and ‘terrorism”. These xenophobic (“the fear of foreigners”) politicians are, perhaps unwittingly, following the politics and punitive theologies of many other extremist right-wing notables from history, including Adolf Hitler.

Donald Trump is the GOP candidate that is currently the most popular with Republican voters, but he is in a close tie with every other front-runner when it comes to ignorance about what motivates “terrorism”. Trump says: “…the hatred is beyond comprehension. Where this hatred comes from [and why] we will have to [wait to] determine…until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”

Trump isn’t the only one guilty of willful ignorance. The two major political parties, along with the mainstream media are equally guilty. One of the problems is that nobody is asking the “terrorists” what motivates them and why they feel as they do. Doing so and then listening to their answers would be too hard to handle for uber-patriotic Americans who have been indoctrinated into the cult of American Exceptionalism.

Understanding “radicalization” isn’t rocket science, but in order to understand it, one needs more information than what is spoon-fed to us consumers of inadequate, censored, canned and often fake (“faux”) news. It seems that any information that might cause cognitive dissonance in us “sheeple” is carefully kept away from our fragile souls for political, economic or national security reasons.

And thus we are deprived of the true facts of any case that is usually exaggerated by the propagandists in charge of “public enlightenment”. Therefore we consumers are forced to either adopt the approved story line or are left to develop our own theories based on inadequate information, and cunning campaign speech-writers or their ignorant presidential candidates do the same and are tempted to inflame their voters with conspiratorial versions of what will soon become the “conventional wisdom”. So, being too busy to do the time-consuming searches for the real truth, most of us accept the propagandist’s version that is then spread about on Fox News, CNN, or even NPR, MPR, PBS or at the local watering hole.

Mid-term elections: America loses again

We just swapped one bunch of crooks, liars and thieves for the other bunch of crooks, liars and thieves. The country just went “red” more from embarrassment than anything else. You should be embarrassed and turning beet red from being duped yet again. 2/3 of us didn’t even bother to show up to vote. What’s the point?

fascismamerica01About last night…..

I scoured the usual lineup of cable news shows to see what the response was there to the mid-terms. At one point on MSNBC where Rachael Maddow was predictably finding humor in the elections, I wondered out loud what was wrong with this woman? According to Maddow, the elections weren’t really as bad as they seemed on the surface and we should just laugh them off. They really didn’t mean anything or at least not what we thought they did. This wasn’t really a political shellacking, it was just a rub & buff…nothing more. HaHaHa….Isn’t this funny? No, it isn’t.

The remainder of the scripted reality shows we call news on MSNBC also pandered to the “its not what you think” line. Yes it was what we think. More than that, its what we know. We just traded one old man for another old man; both of them nested up for years inside the beltway and so detached from the public that neither of them try to hide their disgust for “We the People”. We just opened the door to another neo-con assault on the nation. Pardon me for not laughing.

Faux news was ready to implode as one hack after another jubilantly reported the shellacking of America via the elections and what is nothing less than the return of the neo-cons. Already they are talking about “deregulation”.

You remember deregulation don’t you? More

SCOTUS & Eric Holder: Its political pimpin’ pimpin’, man!

Note:  I wrote this article last night in anticipation of what I was sure would be the results of SCOTUS….unfortunatley I was absolutely correct in my predicition on the outcome of Citizens v Obamacare.  The Court voted to uphold this unconstitional assault on America.  Just one more reason this court needs to be rendered defunct.

____________________________________________________________________

For a portion of this afternoon, I flipped back and forth between the tedious and twisted up oral arguments in the Supreme Court for and against Obamacare and the political pimping going on, on MSNBC about the pending vote of [contempt of congress] against Eric Holder, the US Attorney General. MSNBC is of course the lefts’ counter to FAUX News on the right, and these days has about as much credibility.

Those magic black robes!

I doubt there are any of us out here who think or believe that Obamacare is even remotely constitutional. Yet the Supreme’s and the attorney’s talked endlessly about whether or not the penalty tax was really a tax or just a penalty while every one of them knew it was a penalty tax meant to raise revenue and to coerce unwilling individuals into a system they don’t want to be a part of.  Simply put:  It is legislative extortion meant to raise revenue or, involuntary forced compliance which will also raise revenue.

At one point, the argument from the bench was that Social Security was also a tax that everyone had to pay. Only that isn’t really true, and neither is it true in regards to Obamacare. I have no intentions of getting into this any further except to say that Obamacare is a direct assault on individual rights and is clearly unconstitutional from start to finish. Congress knew it when they passed it and the president knew it when he signed it into law. The Supreme’s also know this and I can hardly wait to hear the convoluted rationale to be given to explain why they did not declare the entire mess unconstitutional. But I have no doubt that they will uphold this unconstitutional assault on the public.

I consider this to be Citizens v Obamacare opinion which will rival the Citizens v United for position #1 on the greatest failures of this court to defend and protect the Constitution for the people of the United States.

About those talking heads at MSNBC…. More
