Remember when the country first elected Obama? Remember the collective sigh of relief as he spoke of returning the country to its former glory? Remember when we all thought he was going to end the neo-con overthrow of our government and country?

And remember when we all realized he had simply picked up where the Bush/Cheney Crime Syndicate left off and added some new twists of his own?

Remember how sick at your stomach you felt when you realized that Obama was Bush on steroids?

That’s kind of the same feeling too many of us out here have today. This wasn’t a mandate for Republicans although they are trying to sell it as if it was. It was a rejection of the corruption, the anti-American mind-set in the District of Criminals. And we had only two choices.

______________________________________________

34192_1thThere are few out here in the general public, regardless of supposed party affiliation, expressing any sense of celebration or excitement over last night’s election returns. We simply swapped one faction of the one-party system for the other. Most agree that nothing is going change other than the way the pre-planned agenda will be implemented.

Absent from any debates, if you could call the public displays put on by candidates on both sides a debate of any kind, was any discussion of the illegal and unwarranted spying by NSA and multiple other spy agencies operating without oversight.

No one mentioned or even discussed casually, the militarization of law enforcement against the public at large. Not one candidate mentioned the military tanks, the grenade launchers, assault rifles, SWAT gear, and other military weapons that local law enforcement is now arming themselves with for use on the very communities that employ them. Equipment that was paid for with taxpayer money or borrowed in the name of the People and produced so excessively that there was enough equipment to sell to other countries, to arm our own military and to arm local law enforcement against us.

kohlsMillions of clear-headed people all over the world have paid close attention to the evidence that disproves the Big Lie, and thus they have seen through the propaganda that launched and then quagmired and bankrupted the US into two illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. They are naturally wondering what is going on, and why have they been black-listed?”

Why do Good People Become Silent About the Documentable Facts That Disprove the Official White House Conspiracy Theory About 9/11? – Part ONE

_______________

It is my firm belief that 9/11 skeptics—and true skeptics of any paradigm-shifting and taboo subject—who publicly expose lies and naked emperors are heroes who have come out of waiting, for we have suffered the ridicule and wrath of those emperors, their minions, and the just plain frightened.

“To survive as babies and young children, we automatically look to our parents (thought-leaders, TV anchormen, politicians, military generals and other parent figures) for confirmation of safety or danger (whether manufactured or otherwise).

“Thus, the need for a leader, an authority, appears to be genetically hardwired. If we have been reared in an authoritarian family and school system, then this tendency to rely on authority figures for confirmation of reality is likely reinforced. Conversely, if we are (gently) reared in a family, school system, and cultural context that rewards critical thinking and respects our feelings and needs, then the tendency to rely on authority figures would likely be weakened.

“In our American society, many of our officials routinely lie to and abuse us, but nonetheless, many citizens continue to look to them for truth and safety—especially when fear is heightened. This strong tendency to believe and obey authority is another obstacle with which skeptics of the official 9/11 account must contend.

“By unquestioningly believing and obeying authority, we develop and perpetuate faulty identities and faulty beliefs, and to top it off, we make very bad decisions, which often negatively affect others. This can be equally true for the four human proclivities studied by social psychologists: doublethink, cognitive dissonance, conformity, and groupthink.” – Psychologist Frances Shure, M. A., L. P. C. Excerpted from Part 3 of her 9 part series on “Why Do Good People Remain Silent – or Worse – about 9/11?More

Concerning the coming Election of Nov 4, 2014 do you think the response to this should be to re-elect the Party in power when this happened? Would Germany do that? Should we in the responsible electorate do it ONE MORE TIME?

[Ed Note: There were no television views of the first plane hitting the WTC tower . Yet George W. Bush said that he was able to see television of the first plane hitting the tower.

He stated the terrorists were “shifting the blame of 911 FROM THE GUILTY”

Many wars have been started by false flag attacks, RVN, Korea , WWI, Spanish American War, however, the single most recorded event in human history of the Regime bombing and setting on fire one of their own buildings is absent,  except for the Reichstag burned by Adolf Hitler and Hermann Goering, which was blamed on Communists.

THE BUILDING WAS EMPTY AND NO PEOPLE OF THE GERMAN PUBLIC WERE DELIBERATELY MURDERED, ONLY THE DEMOLITION OF THE BUILDING.

The planning was done within weeks to days of the actual event of Goering traveling through underground tunnel and setting the fire.

ONLY on 911 was the planning for the nuclear destruction of WTC  done years in advance, with 3,000 dead murdered US Citizens and blamed on 19 hijackers on the same day with no records of their being on the passenger lists.

Mark Dankof: Why We’re Finished

Mark Dankof’s America

“The Old American Republic is dead. The American Empire wants to destroy all of us who believe in Republic, not in Empire. I see no reason to believe the American public has the insight and the guts to stand up to this onslaught. We Are Truly Finished.”

I have been receiving a lot of mail from folks asking why I’ve taken a mild leave of absence from broadcasting and writing op-ed pieces for The Ugly Truth. I will appear from time to time, but on a more limited basis, both with The Ugly Truth and Press TV. I’ve been reassessing what good I’m actually doing, given the seemingly inexorable and disastrous direction the American Empire has embarked upon, and what seems like the absolute passivity and indifference of the American public to their own fate in all of this, not to mention the world. In more recent times, I’ve been working on theological articles while preparing to resume my thesis for my last degree along with some theological German study. I’m also job hunting to supplement my income as I assess the future. The bottom line is this: The title of this piece tells you what I’ve concluded about the country and the American people. It isn’t a happy endgame. What appears below are my latest thoughts at the present time.]

—————————————————————

dankofinwashingtondc2011As he was preparing to leave office in 1961, President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned that “America must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence…by the military-industrial complex.” Borrowing the title from the Frank Capra Defense Department propaganda films of World War II, documentary film maker Eugene Jarecki chronicled the Eisenhower warning in Why We Fight, a production that would win the Grand Jury Prize at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival.

I vaguely remember Eisenhower. What I didn’t know as a little boy in the summer of 1960 when my family piled into my Dad’s new white Plymouth Station Wagon to depart Alexandria, Virginia for McClellan Air Force Base in Sacramento, was the fact that Dad was working for the Air Force Technical Applications Center (AFTAC), the intelligence organization created by Eisenhower to work with the CIA and the AEC in monitoring Soviet nuclear tests, explosions, and missile sites around the world. I did not know that my father was acquainted with Eisenhower, Curtis LeMay, Paul Tibbets of the Enola Gay, and many other storied names of the Second World War and the Cold War that followed. I would learn a number of things about Dad in the decades that followed. There are many other things I never learned, even as he was losing both coherence and consciousness in the final days of his life in San Antonio in May of 2009. Allen Dulles was correct. There are some things that remain secret “from inception to eternity.”

In 1961, as a denizen of kindergarten at the Arthur S. Dudley Elementary School on an American Air Force reservation in Sacramento, I also had no idea that my father would also become acquainted with President Kennedy. All I knew was that Kennedy was the most handsome and dynamic man I’d ever seen on TV, with the most beautiful wife to match. With Kennedy in office, watching Arnold Palmer on TV winning the British Open, making many trips to San Francisco’s Candlestick Park to see Willie Mays in his prime, and trekking to old Kezar Stadium to watch the football 49ers, my idyllic childhood on the West Coast was wedded to an America filled with hope, youth, and limitless future. Mythology and visual images seemed to correspond with reality. The realities of what Seymour Hersh would reveal in his 1996 chronicle of the Kennedy years entitled “The Dark Side of Camelot,” did not correspond to my universe as a kid in the America of the early 1960s.

Message to the voting cattle………Anarchy

This is from Grant’s speech within the novel “The Iron Web” by Larken Rose

Anarchy –Grant’s Speech recited by John Rand

Published on Aug 16, 2012

There is some ambiguity with the use of the terms “libertarianism” and “libertarian” in writings about anarchism. Since the 1890s from France, the term “libertarianism” has often been used as a synonym for anarchism and was used almost exclusively in this sense until the 1950s in the United States; its use as a synonym is still common outside the United States.  Accordingly, “libertarian socialism” is sometimes used as a synonym for socialist anarchism, to distinguish it from “individualist libertarianism” (individualist anarchism). On the other hand, some use “libertarianism” to refer to individualistic free-market philosophy only, referring to free-market anarchism as “libertarian anarchism”.

Anarchy (from the ancient Greek αναρχια, from αν, “not” +‎ αρχος  “ruler”, “absence of a leader”, without rulers), has more than one definition. In the United States, the term “anarchy” typically is used to refer to a society without a publicly enforced government or violently enforced political authority. When used in this sense, anarchy may or may not be intended to imply political disorder or lawlessness within a society. However, this usage is not the traditional sense of the word.
Outside of the US, and by most individuals that self-identify as anarchists, it implies a system of governance, mostly theoretical at a nation state level although there are a few successful historical examples, that goes to lengths to avoid the use of coercion, violence, force and authority, while still producing a productive and desirable society.

Political conventions: A collection of guppies and suckers

GOP = Guppies on Parade

The GOP convention was like watching a room full of guppies; their mouths opening and closing, them swimming about mindlessly totally unaware of what what was going on right in front of them.  Their “convention” absolutely rigged against them, their speakers regurgitating the neo-con party lines.  The growing dictatorshipsepitome of the evening was the appearance of Condoleeza Rice, lynchpin of the Bush/Cheney crime syndicate that caused catastrophic attacks on our constitution and that started at least two wars of aggression and which began the wholesale sell-off of our national assets to foreign investors and governments.

The appearance of Rice, an undoubted signal that the neo-cons were going to return, should have cleared the room.  Any sensible person would have run for cover.  Any one who has a memory longer than a few days ago……would have cringed at the appearance of this woman, who claims to be a Christian, who helped twist and contort the privileges of the office of the president, who knowingly lied about WMD in Iraq, who used her office to oppress the people of the United States at every possible opportunity, who fully supported the corruption that was rampant in the Bush/Cheney crime syndicate….this woman was a featured speaker for the GOP.

Is anyone really wondering what is in store for us if Romney/Ryan wins the election?  More

We should have stormed the streets when TSA was set loose in our airports to assault travelers, but we didn’t. Instead, hundreds of thousands, if not millions of us mewled that TSA was “only trying to keep us safe”.  These assaults have nothing to do with our safety; we are being systematically trained to comply, to submit.  Now, because so many of us did comply, TSA is setting up shop in our train stations and courthouses among other public places and is expanding their assaults on US citizens.  The government has now openly declared war on its own citizens.  Think I’m wrong?  More
