Dissecting U.S. Elections - the People vs. the Pols

The establishment has an entrenched interest in convincing the public that their vote in elections actually decides who is selected for public office. That same power elite runs and controls both Republican and Democratic political parties. Only a neophyte or a delusional idealist believes that the voting cycle reflects the will of the people. When reform candidates engage in the primary process, hoping to win the nomination from either of the two major parties, they face the stark reality that playing ball with the money bundlers means obeying the directives of masters of the universe. These overlords own politicians, especially those who continue in office by winning predetermined elections.

House Republicans Defund Obamacare Showdown

The news that GOP House Representatives voted in favor of a celebrated defunding bill certainly has long dormant political soothsayers coming out in force with reports from their congressional sources. A good old-fashioned brash knucklers fight gets everyone juiced up. Freedom Works is pushing a petition to Tell Congressional Republicans to Defund ObamaCare in 2013. While the Huffington Post reports, Red State Democrats Oppose Republican Effort To Defund Obamacare. With all the political pundits eager to share their version of wisdom, we get conclusions as varied as the stars that represent the states.

Groupthink in Service of Government

If the human race survives into the future, the history of the current age will be entitled – A Love Affair with Authority. As the 21st century unfolds, the existential struggle between group worship of government and an inherent autonomy revolt against a popular culture of state obedience seems to forecast doom for civilization. By any measurable standard of success, the prospects of rescuing a society based upon human dignity and natural law is vanishing in a technocratic system of coerced compliance and punitive punishment. The limits of individual behavior are severely restricted to the requirements of the State and the willful confines of self-induced conformity.

United Stasi of America through the Echelon Prism

Signals collection has a long secretive and enigmatic history. The very definition of espionage implies spying, most closely associated with foreign sources. Since the Echelon network, the unified function of data retrieval became a given during the cold war. With the revelation of Prism, advances in sophisticated electronic devices and software algorithms provide a major leap. The article, Is PRISM the US version of Echelon?, sums up the evolution. "With this kind of setup and ambition to capture and evaluate private conversations (well, not so private now), makes Echelon that much more believable, and that PRISM is a reflection of the infamous project, but focused solely on the US."

From Viet Nam Defiance to Boston Surrender

Historically, what separated American society from most other countries was a healthy distrust of government and a tradition of civil liberties. The Bill of Rights is a unique safeguard embodied within the constitutional structure of a road map for governmental restraint. One of the most important restrictions placed upon the police powers of the central government is exemplified in Posse Comitias. The militarization of domestic law enforcement is fundamentally in conflict with individual rights and natural law.

John O. Brennan: CIA Drone Director

Well, Barak Obama got his wish on the second try. With the confirmation of John Owen Brennan by the Senate, the CIA has a new director from their own ranks. "Brennan's 25 years with the CIA included work as a Near East and South Asia analyst, as station chief in Saudi Arabia, and as director of the National Counterterrorism Center." He proudly attests, "I'm neither Republican nor Democrat. I've worked for the past five administrations." Imagine a non-partisan spook as D/CIA. If this development is intended to restore confidence in the agency, just what kind of organization will emerge from a careerist covert agent at the helm?

NeoCon Personal Attack on Chuck Hagel

The vocal smear coming out of the orchestrated Zionist media and corridors of orthodox foreign policy on Chuck Hagel, leaves bare the myth that the Israel-First proponents have the best interests of our country at heart. Obscene attacks on the former Senator provide refreshing validation that the establishment is nervous, because the sacred canons of their imperial strategy might be questioned. Such panicky concern gives sustenance to the cause for a rational and self-interest national defense policy. The hideous Neoconservatives maintain their diabolical alliance with the Neoliberal internationalists that work for a global dominance, which serves the interests of the financial elites, while sacrificing the blood and future of another generation of American youth.

Rogue Terrorism for a Greater Israel

Most peoples that resist the power politics of Zionism condemn aggressive actions of the outlaw Israeli state regularly. Yet most of the western democracies that are under the control of Talmud media and Khazar finance continue to defend the apartheid policies that are designed to purge any prospect of Palestinian, right to return, to the land of their forced removal. No matter what your politics are regarding the Middle East, the indisputable fact exists that the Greater Israel design for expanded territory is a core impediment of this interminable conflict.

Media Coverage of Identity Politics

By any traditional standards of accomplishment, Barack Obama has failed miserably. This assessment is not based upon any particular ideology or partisan politics, just on straight pragmatic results. Furthermore, if you watch or read any of the accounts from the establishment media you would think that the black messiah would shuffle into a second term on the strength of his vocal talent. Singing sweet melodies appeals to those lacking in intellectual skills to assess and judge reality from rhetoric. What is striking about the tenor of the political debate is that the face of the country now wears a socialist mask that the masses love and demands even greater expansion.

The Romney and Netanyahu Brotherhood

The NeoCons are delighted with their new imperialist firebrand, Mitt Romney. Just look to all the familiar faces and names that surround the presumptive GOP nominee for dictator in chief. It is impossible to support the Republican Party when their foreign policy is made in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. If you belief this assessment is too harsh, explain away the recent pilgrimage to the Wailing Wall. The Moderate Voice makes a striking point on Romney’s recent visit to Israel, which is difficult to refute.

Time for the Second American Revolution

For well over the last decade BATR has argued that the Republic is dead. Now that the Supreme Court has rendered their decision on Obamacare, there can be no doubt that the funeral for a nation, born out of a revolution for liberty, is over. The country, buried in the ashes of totalitarian despotism, is now history.

Gay Marriage, Obama and the Me Value Culture

Debating the virtues and morality of accepting gay marriage unions is like discussing the merits of pedophiles catering head start parties for children. How one comes down on the comparison, usually depends upon your own personal value system and culture of acceptable conduct. The red herring of committing a "Hate Crime" for even having the cojones to raise the issue, exemplifies just how far society has sunk to abandon valid intellectual scrutiny. Audacity in the defense of Western Civilization traditions, ethics and, much less religious principles, is rapidly becoming a ubiquitous bias-motivated offense. Celebrating diversity has become accepting depravity.

Lilith the Genesis of the Feminism Curse

Demons and devils are part of the folklore of almost every culture. Beliefs vary as to the nature of such evil spirits. Some dismiss the concept of mischievous poltergeist altogether. However, the definition of evil is constituted within your value system, the consequences of wicked actions abound. Most civilizations rely upon the heritage, legacies and teachings of previous generations. Much of the original dialogue on humanity, founded on the books of the bible, teach lessons of morality. So what can be said about the Lilith myth and how does her revulsion toward the natural order distort modern society?

Newt Gingrich the Skunk Vomit NeoCon

Don Imus yells the slur "Skunk Vomit" as a description for Newt Gingrich. Coming from the erratic "Old Cowboy" and shock jock legend that lives on outrage and offense is nothing new to his listeners. This successor to the Andy Rooney curmudgeon institution is hardly a clarion voice of time-honored conservatives. So too, with a little investigation into Newt Gingrich you will see that the former Speaker is no true conservative. His rhetoric at times can seem appealing, but strip away the high tone platitudes and you are left with the assertions of an opportunist and a New World Order proponent.

Occupy Extreme and Establishment Moderate

So much written about the Occupy Wall Street is pure BS. If this street theater was a spontaneous and independent movement, where is the outrage towards the high priest of monetary manipulation, George Soros? From the outset, civil disobedience is the most sincere method of dissent. Breaking All the Rules is based upon a healthy and judicious resistance towards all levels of false authority and systemic corruption. Therefore, it is with a heavy heart, that the careerist organizers and front groups for the establishment sweep away the noble intentions of earnest radicals. Those enablers and facilitators of fraudulent financial institutions makes a mockery of authentic protection.

How to Lick the Budget Deficits

Government deficits are a way of life in the post republic America. The spending addiction is a plague that swept away the land of the free and the home of the brave. The cultural curse of entitlement ‘rights’ has created a system of mob rule on the bottom of the ladder and champagne wishes and caviar dreams by plutocrat aristocrats. The controllers of the corporatist economy are just as adamant about their ‘right’ to dominate as the unwashed demonstrator defends their latest chanting theme for wealth re-distribution.

EU Bonds Rollover Debt with a Chinese Bailout

The financial press is inundated with the most ominous reports of an EU meltdown. The downturn in economic activity and little growth all comes down to the unsustainability in servicing the debt obligations. Sovereign countries bailouts only pile on even more debt. European banks are tied to a Euro dominated currency, while the political union is anything but unified. Any serious student of European history inescapably concludes that the perennial ambition to orchestrate a single patchwork of diverse cultures and interests into a pan European brotherhood is always doomed. A consensus fraternity based upon socialistic economics feeds the inevitable default. However, never fear the banksters will not suffer, as the globalists prepare to use their next crisis, to consolidate their grip of world dominance.

Raising the Debt Ceiling Avoids the Spending Addiction

The latest example of political hyperbole is that the U.S. Treasury is ready to default on its debt. An actual examination of the underlying facts is that the relative purchasing value of the currency has long ago swindled debt holder in U.S. Bonds of their promised returns. A default defined under this definition is part of the equation. Repudiation of the entire debt obligation is the real fear.

The Handbook of Human Ownership

The enslavement of humanity is replete throughout history. The reason is simple. The nature of societies allows corrupt sociopaths and malicious methods of domination to rule. The chronicles of any era clearly documents that liberty is rare. Inherent Autonomy is the intrinsic nature of the human condition. However, in the eternal struggle to achieve individual freedom, governments operate as overseers in invented schemes to herd human beasts into inhuman subjugation. The rule of the rulers over the resistance of the ruled is reality.

War of Terror is a Reichstag Fire False Flag Operation

By now, you are probably worn out from all the speculation about the actual events in Pakistan that claim the death of the public enemy No 1. No photos of a dead Osama bin Laden, burial at sea, instant DNA results and changing versions with every new news report gets old quickly. The claim that a treasure chest of intelligence was secured during the raid, conflicts with killing the main man who knows where all the buried are buried. Capturing him alive for interrogation would maximize the intelligence quest, if that were the real goal.

Nobel Peace Prize for AWOL War President

William Jefferson Clinton was called the first black president. Now it can be said that Barry Soetoro is the first female president. What justifies such a label? Clearly, Barack Hussein Obama has no cojones. The Ipanema vacationer practices his African samba carnival dance while carnage rains from tomahawk missiles. Humanitarian altruism acts as cover for a remote controlled marionette doing the bidding in the Soros world of his sorcerer mentors. This commander in chief runs from his own shadow.

Wall Street Capitalism: A Love Affair

What once was a mercantile world has become a global playpen for moving hot money to squeeze out the highest return on investment. Replacing nation states with international capital is now sport. Undermining the sovereignty of countries by an elite club of financial manipulators is the purpose for the grand game. Illustrating this fact, David Callaway writes in Market Watch. "The sale of the New York Stock Exchange to Deutsche Boerse this week underscores the lack of historical antipathy for Germany, the world wars not withstanding, but also something more significant. The deal officially slammed the door on the surge of protectionist overreaction that sprang from the global financial crisis". The conquest of the NYSE by German economic dominance is ironic, since so much of the financial funding of the Third Reich came out of Wall and Broad Street.

Ron Paul vs. the Federal Reserve

The Patriot-Liberty movement has railed against the Federal Reserve for decades. Inexorably attached to the abolishment of the private banking monopoly, the entire political career of Ron Paul is an inspiration for any citizen who values liberty and defends the U.S. Constitution. The Federal Reserve is the Enemy of America. The central cause for the financial collapse of the country rests upon the fractional reserve debt created money racket, which relegates the taxpayer to chattel slave status. You know this is true, and the politicians fear that at some breaking point you will rise up and force a return to honest money.

Low Dose Arsenic for a Cyanide Society

Many believe that an 81 mg aspirin a day will help prevent a heart attack. Yet even greater numbers voluntarily absorb regular doses of poison with their daily diet. Start with the mass media. If you watch network programming, you are being programmed. Doubt this conclusion and you prove just how well the brainwashing has taken hold. The nightly news is a prime example of shaping a view of the world according to the script that keeps you dumb and stupid.

Know Nothing - The Reality of the American Experience

Oh, remember those "good old days". Discrimination and ethnic exclusion was the norm and a political party stood for "red meat" self-interest. The catcalls today ring with a "PC" note, how dare anyone even allude that restricting immigration can be part of open debate? The memory of the American Republican Party fades into vagueness of ignorance, knowing history is not a requirement of the modern Know Nothings. If you are one of these marginal historians, how can you be expected to appreciate the anti-immigrant sentiment that existed over a century and half ago?

Labor in America Does Not Pay

Working used to be a proud expression of manhood. Since the days of “Rosie the Riveter”, mothers and daughters joined the work force in mass. Building infrastructure, developing commercial enterprises and producing an endless assembly line of goods led to the greatest expansion of the middle class in American history. In a mere fifty years of planned and coordinated downsizing and out sourcing, the only outcome from honest work is the sweat from your brow. Folks still expend energy and labor at tasks, but few earn a living wage from engaging in industry or commerce.

Only a Chicken Lays Golden Eggs

Once upon a time in the kingdom of political torture a giant monster proclaims a golden edit. No small morsel can go untaxed; the goliath needs to be feed. No fowl can be allowed to go foul of the law. The docile chickens must be caged in their coop so that they have no alternative but to egest their excessive bullion from the bowels of their rump. Yes, Virginia, the giant is coming after your gold. This beast is ready to tear out your innards to get at your ingots. Thanks to Obamacare reportage of your every day, transactions will mount up to exceed the minimum.

Pirates with Nukes

Entirely dispelled are any lingering doubts about the disdain Israel has for international law. Before going any further, just reflect upon all the apologist responses to the global condemnation of the Mediterranean Massacre. All the toadies that carry the water for the Zionist despotism are predictable and deceitful. Based on a foundation of sand their mantra ignores the facts and rests on false axioms. NeoCon Glenn Beck is a devoted cheerleader of Zionism. Making things worse, he is also a Dispensationalist. Departing from the solid research on condemning the failed philosophy of Progressivism, Beck demeans his audience with a false history of Palestine and the nature of the Israeli state. His religious doctrine regarding Israel makes him an apostate.

Tale of Two Townships

What separates the local government of the Town of Malone, NY from that of Cohocton, NY is not a distance of geography, but mindset.  The protracted battle over industrial wind turbines can be easily understood when you examine the vast difference between two laws.  Malone has passed their wind ordinance of 5/24/06.  Read the provisions and appreciate the protections for their community built into the law.  Now inspect the second attempt by the Town of Cohocton to draft their Local Law regulation that virtually turns the township into an industrial landscape.  The obvious question is which town has fulfilled their duty and responsibility to protect their citizens as stated in their respective comprehensive plan?

Taxes, Death and Certainty

Each season when spring approaches, attention turns to the ritual of filling out tax forms.  All year long paying taxes is an integral part of the daily regiment.  But when it comes time to sign your permission slip for legalized thievery, your submission to indentured servitude goes public.  By becoming just another number in the long line of digital compliance under the penalty of perjury, the average citizen is performing his or her financial obligation to the State.  At least that is what you are told is your duty.

Public Propaganda Pundits

Lord Haw-Haw is alive and well.  He takes to the broadcast microphone everyday.  You know his name.  Actually there are many talk show Nazis that preach their doctrine of the ‘State Makes Right’.  But before you think that nothing has changed from when - Talk Radio has Mellowed – was written, you probably have not been listening to the AM air waves lately.  Talk Radio has become worse.  The Goebbels’ school of broadcast propaganda has graduated to a new level of insufferable anti-intellectualism.  The plastic flag has replaced reason and the evil Islamic fascists have become worse then the blood sucking Jew.  America resembles the bastion of a goosestep global blitzkrieg ready to pounce on any foe that opposes the Reich of the Fuhrer.

Woman of the Year, or is it?

The game of presidential politics is often described as musical chairs.  Actually it is more like “Pop Goes the Weasel”.  Since national elections have proved to be irrelevant, tweedledum and tweedledee charades, what’s the point in getting worked up over the next cycle?  Well adjusted minds know that the next presidency will just be another administration that wastes the country.  Another ‘Croissant Kerry’ run would drive the electorate to riot.  A McCain march will never get fundamental troops to get in line.  What will the parties on both sides of the same coin do?  When in doubt call in the consultants and pollsters . . .

George W. Bush "Born Again" Foreign Policy

Leave it up to God to judge Dubya’s soul, but for the rest of us mere mortals assessing his politics is not just sport, it is essential survival protection.  The loony left is taking delight in his recent troubles.  True to human nature, the rat pack has suspect motives, even when outrage is the fitting response.  As usual, the bleeding heart utopians fail to understand the game that is playing itself out.  Their idea of a villain is that bad old conservative President.  Their kind of hero is that lip biting, “I feel your pain” philanderer.  A womanizer is the next best thing to having a woman President.  Well, here we go again!  Wrong on all counts.

GWB another LBJ

Texas was the home of Stephen Austin and Sam Houston, was defended by Davy Crockett and has fashioned some of the most bona fide Americans in all the country.  But to the eternal shame of the state mockingbird symbol bears the scars of producing two utter failures as president.  Sure, George Walker Bush was born in New Haven of Connecticut Yankee stock, but he has adapted well to the facade of a wild west.  The Real West would spit on either of these bandits that robbed and raped while they pranced and stole.  The appearance of social justice or compassion doesn’t square with their records of dictatorial arrogance.  Straight talk folks smell a rotten carcass.  The dead bodies that fill their Alamo, deserve a national autopsy.

If terrorists were really serious

"Them against us", is the battle cry.  Forget about a "global struggle against violent extremism," it's a war, so says President Bush.  Keep the pressure up and the fraud going.  Never let the debate discuss the merits of the strategy or the results of the policy.  Thinking can never be allowed to penetrate the decisions.  Attack any opposition to the course of escalation and permanent intervention.  Fight them "Over There", so we can be safe at home!  Ever wonder why these terrorists keep building nail bombs while the great super power runs their search and destroy missions?

Nothing to Fear - All is Perfect!

Successive generations are familiar with the FDR era slogan “Nothing to Fear but Fear Itself”, but how many are aware that ‘All is Perfect’ in this new age of health, wealth and progress?  Those who peddle apprehension are often damned for negativism.  While proponents of “have a wonderful day” and a brighter future, are seldom condemned for being unrealistic.  The cultural bias is rooted in a false optimism.  Facts, reality and veracity take a back seat to idealism.  The sum of all fears is irrational if you want to live a life free from anxiety.

VE Day Losing WWII

From the reading of history the victor is supposed to write a favorable account.  After all the classic documentaries and countless sequels to the “Greatest Generation”, we are left with the stark fact that winning the war against Nazi Germany really meant that the conqueror of the  “Great Patriotic War” was the Soviet Union.  Hardly a model of moral virtue or social inspiration, the decision to ally with Joseph Stalin to defeat Adolf Hitler has proven to be the most tragic error in a history of American foreign policy blunders.

A New Way to be Taxed

A subject so near and dear has become a national preoccupation.  Avoid thinking about just how much taxation really targets our pocket books.  The resigned rationalization that nothing can be done to avoid the taxman is the underpinning attitude that pervades the economy.  So ironic that most business decisions are deeply influenced if not outright made by their tax consequences.  The entire accounting profession is built upon a produce of reporting and compliance with a sought after goal of avoidance.  What other sector dominates your financial universe more than the fear that your affairs will be audited in minute detail and that interest and penalties will be assessed.  As any observant taxpayer would attest, abiding by the tax law is a full time endeavor.

Social Insecurity the AARP Program

Few not for profit organizations, PROFIT more than AARP.  You know who they are – that  nonprofit, nonpartisan membership organization for people age 50 and over.  If you believe their mission statement, then chances are you will swallow the entire Social Security scam.  The SS Swindle can be debated, but the reality of the fraud can’t be escaped.  The mere fact that most Americans accept the bribes as a birthright, does not justify the insidious theft and deceit that underpins the program.  Now that the unsustainability of this pay as you go system is admitted, only the date of demise from demographic realities is left to dispute.

I Love DC

No other place on earth has as much appeal for aspiring autocrats than the bastion of indulgence that sprang up out of a swamp.  The Potomac cuts through the monuments as it flows to the sea - taking with it all the discharge and waste that inexorably comes from spent excess.  Where else can you find a place where nothing of value is created, no useful product is produced, completely void of any industrious endeavor?  Absent in the practice of wealth creation has not hindered the establishment of temples.  The cornerstones of an empire are fueled by the tribute extracted from the soil of the land.  The superhighway of sustenance runs in only one direction.  The life blood of survival comes in, that allows the organism of privilege to sustain its preeminent dominance.

Homeland Security by the Colors

Tom Ridge will be remembered as the man behind the colors. Now, the post will be filled by a man who plays the game by the numbers.  Here comes the judge!  Michael Chertoff comes highly recommended, unless you ask for a reference from Hillary Clinton.  So just who is this guy?  Well, listen to the NPR - Profile of Homeland Security Nominee Michael Chertoff, for a glowing interview about this capable former high-ranking federal prosecutor.  What’s going on?  All those Klintonistas uptown rebels now coming to the aid of a downtown Republican reactionary!  Did they forget about that rightwing conspiracy during those Whitewater hearings or are they simply confused and think they were watching the inquisition from the Watergate.

The formation of a bureaucratic superstructure for national intelligence will put in motion a perverse organism. The significance lies not in the figurehead or even the process for the selection, but rests in the birthing of a Medusa. Little wisdom comes out of this modern daughter of Phorkys and Keto, the children of Gaia (Earth) and Okeanos (Ocean).  This ugly creature will use the charms of seduction – national security – but will end up spreading a den of snakes. The globe will be her playpen and the seas will be her lake.

Digesting the results from a Diebold voting count is like holding your breath while drowning in a pool of your own blood. You hope the statistics will provide optimism, while you know that you are expiring from the loss of your own vital fluid.

L. Paul Bremer: The Ultimate Ugly American

An Ugly American is a pejorative term for Americans traveling or living abroad who remain ignorant of local culture and judge everything by American standards. So what do you call an administrative occupier who wants to transform a foreign culture into a colonial tool of NeoCon aims and goals? The ultimate is often overused, but in this context, Bremer has demonstrated that he is prominently in the running for such a dubious title.

Oil: Painful for some, but hardly a crisis

So says a lead report in the Economist. “Americans might whine about it, but they aren’t in pain because the oil price is $35,” argues Roger Diwan of PFC Energy, a consultancy. As evidence, he points to the robust growth in demand for oil in America in recent months—one of the main reasons why prices are now so high. WOW, tell that to the soccer mom filling up her SUV!

John McCain: The Man Who Would Be President

"Prescience is a funny thing.  But when Todd Brendan Fahey created in very early 2000, to counteract "conservatives" notions that Arizona Senator John McCain was still a "Goldwater Republican," he lit the hot torch.  Scoffed at, ridiculed, reviled by "mainstream GOP"-types, he was booted off for insisting on spreading the anti-McCain message. Today, there are only the chirping of crickets.  GOP-backers don't want to lose a Senator, but everyone now knows (or should know) that Fahey was right.

Special Privileges For Feds

If you believe that Martha Stewart is an enemy of the state, you are right. However, is she a desperado that deserves the fate of corporate plungers? Well, the art of stealing from public companies is often rewarded for the skilled crook; but if you are caught in a lie, you are the worst of the worse. The focal point in this soap opera is missed by the media. Back in June of 2002, in Steward of the Public Trust, we asked: "Should Ms. Stewart be tarred and feathered for using etiquette banned by the SEC? Or are we supposed to swing Martha's stockbroker, Peter Bacanovic, from the highest tree for getting her out of a down market?"

Haiti remains a failed society

With the news that Jean-Bertrand Aristide has fled Haiti, the ignoble tradition of the Duvalier’s continues. You hear that Aristide was the first democratically elected president of that country. However, most are ignorant of the history of the last half century. François Duvalier was a physician and was tagged with the nickname, "Papa Doc".  With the army's support, he was elected to the presidency in 1957. This is an age where the international community demands that they certify elections for them to be valid. It comes as no surprise, that he was dubbed a tyrant, when the voodoo practitioner declared himself president for life.

Who Do Intelligence Snoops Serve?

"I strongly believe the CIA is ably led by George Tenet," George W. Bush said in an Oval Office interview to be broadcast Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press." Well, from the perspective of the Intelligence Community culture, the president is probably correct. However; the essential question that is continuously ignored, asks if those assets serve the American People! Spying is as old as time. The principal aspect that matters is the purpose of that intelligence gathering. The CIA is only the most visible agency that engages in the practice of counterintelligence. Those that are acknowledged openly are listed on an official government site, Members of the Intelligence Community (IC).

Why Mars Space Exploration?

With all the excitement over the Mars rovers, the cries for a visionary manned exploration program are back with earnest. If you are a romantic, then maybe you are moved. But if you are a student of history, the fundamental question of purpose needs to be asked. What is the point of sending living beings to distant planets, when our own earth is a confused mess? The analogy of criticism for a Columbus voyage doesn’t wash. The age of discovery involved expansion and exploration that increased commerce and offered hope for a new future. Long space journeys only gratify the egos of governments.

A little piece of history puts perspective back into politics.

911 has become the ultimate excuse

The paramount pretext that consumes the law-abiding culture is that 911 has changed everything. Well, the only aspect that has altered the natural symmetry is that a fabricated diversion has inundated the rational capacities of ordinary citizens. Drowning in a sea of self denial, Americans have accepted the mind control environment and defend the subversive society. What the establishment say is true, the sheeple embrace as truth.

Do Foreigners Have a Right to Enter the United States?

For the purest of Libertarians, their answer would be that no nation should limit the free travel and movement of individuals across borders. Such a conclusion is one of the best illustrations why theory must be founded in reality, for it to have merit. If the optimum criteria is to postulate the best of all possible worlds, you better locate to a fantasy planet where you are the sole monarch. In the real world, governments exist and operate by their prime directive - to protect and preserve the STATE.

2004 - a time to go fishing

In the past, the beginning of each new year would bring renewal, hope and promise. But the times they are a changing. 2002 was tabbed the year of the radical. The question was asked: why are we willing to support policies that will result in unjust government? The public response was striking. The vast majority of Americans approved of the theft of our civil liberties and loved the idea of sending troops on a world wide fox hunt. The notion that WE are really the prey of our own domestic predators was just too much to consider. The call of the wild was too strong to overcome rational behavior. Support for the mission became more important than preserving the Nation. 2003 was the year of the revo-ami. This was the time to set into motion the revolutionary spirit to revive the Republic.

What's next for the troops?

By now you heard the announcements that Saddam Hussein has been captured. The celebrations have been reported, the pictures of joy sent around the world. Now that the war is really over, when will the troops start to come home? Before you hear and read all the detailed accounts of the capture, let’s focus on the stated purpose of the Iraqi invasion. Since a WMD cache still eludes finding, the proponents of the war must hang their hat on the finding and arresting of the evil tyrant.

Why the GOP are cowards

Republicanism is not equivalent with the GOP political party. Genuine conservatism has had fleeting representation within that party. Examine the history and the principles of each. A real conservative stands for the principles of individual civil liberty and personal responsibility, limited government, states rights, separation of powers - federalism, minimal taxes, honest money, bona fide free enterprise, defense of borders, an American First foreign policy, lawful statues and traditional values. A true conservative believes in the righteousness of the 1776 Revolution. Republicans that are authentic conservatives have a serious dilemma, how do you justify the record of the GOP?

FBI back to old tricks

Are you a supporter of the FBI? Certainly this need not be an either or question, but in today’s world of litmus tests, the room for selective approval has become marginal. Most would concede that there can be a legitimate role for a domestic investigative agency. But when one accepts this basic principle, that the central government has a justifiable function to conduct national law enforcement, the slippery slope of civil liberty abdication begins. The final culmination, when the avalanche strips the last remains of constitutional protections, is a police state. The majority recedes into the flawed belief that a reasonable balance can be reached. In theory, with good intentions and men of good will, this idea may seem sensible.

Free Trade Area of the Americas

Are you ready for the next trade agreement? Before denouncing all those anarchists for disrupting the peaceful tranquillity of a Miami afternoon, think about all those additional benefits from an entire Western Hemisphere expansion of NAFTA. Go directly to the latest November 21, 2003, third draft of FTAA agreement for proof that America will be restricted from enacting protective measures to stem the hemorrhage of the trade deficit.

JFK retrospectives adnauseam

Are you tired yet from all the programs memorializing John F. Kennedy? With the passage of time, clarity increases as closure evades. Only government stooges accept the Warren Commission version of fantasy land. As the population ages, with a majority having no direct recollection of that fateful day in Dallas, we are left with interpretive history. The facts are less important than the reality of what transpired over the last four decades.

Bush: A Crazed Mattoid

The “global democratic revolution” is the center piece of the Bush presidency. While a revolutionary spirit was the focus that moved our Founding Fathers to break with the Crown, today’s all powerful imperial empire resides in the United States. King George II says he is on a hallowed mission to save the Middle East from themselves. Democracy will be the cure and the medicine of approved regime changes will be forced down their throats. Women will be made participatory citizens and the shahs of Islamic extremism will be tamed into submissive puppets. Ah, the ‘Pox Americana’ spreads the virus of emancipation with the fervor of an old time religion.

Latin America - A Vast Wasteland

Race has long been the determining factor in Latin America. Reluctance in dealing with this taboo subject does more to harm individuals than unequal conditions. The myth of equality has caused more damage and has hurt specific countries, because society is unwilling to deal with cultural disproportion. Few places on earth have greater disparity in income, status and social advancement as the ‘so called’ New World, south of the border. The United States seems to be a bastion for opportunity in comparison. So what is the cause for this imbalance?

Generals don’t make good Presidents

At the outset, only George Washington and Andrew Jackson were inspired presidents. Dwight David Eisenhower was at his best on the golf course. Taylor, Hayes, Arthur and Harrison aren’t known by most, while US Grant is remembered for his corrupt administration. So what would make any sensible citizen think that General Wesley K. Clark could ever aspire to be on the staff of Douglas MacArthur?

The Dubious U.S. State Department

Once again Pat Robertson has stirred a hornets nest. Commenting on Joel Mowbray’s book - Dangerous Diplomacy: How the State Department Endangers America's Security - the broadcaster offered this assessment: "I read your book. When you get through, you say, 'If I could just get a nuclear device inside Foggy Bottom, I think that's the answer.' I mean, you get through this, and you say, 'We've got to blow that thing up"'. He was referring to that bastion of the American Way - the preverbal core of the establishment bureaucracy itself - the U.S. Department of State.

Another Campaign to Nowhere

Bill Clinton was dubbed the first black president, so what should George W Bush be called the first rabbi chief executive? As the campaign to justify the war on terror continues, who has benefited from this insane journey down a road that can only end in a wreck, at the bottom of a political cliff?  If the world is being assaulted by a committed band of extremists and fundamentalists, why is there so much apprehension about asking exactly who are these zealots?

State Administered Viagra

Our society is sustained on a steady diet of hype. Incrementalism is the means that common folks are indoctrinated into regimentation. Drip by drip the IV, intravenous feeding, that starts at birth cumulates in the popular culture of fornication. The purpose of this behavior is not gratification or reproduction, it’s all about diversion. If you think the business of sex is about relations between two individuals, you have missed the point of the penetration.

Curse of Multiculturalism

The continuous ruin of cultured society has been fostered by the lunacy of multiculturalism. The abstraction that pluralism is a virtue and that diversity is beneficial has produced a popular culture that hastens our own self-destruction. Mexifornia is more than a shift in population, it is an insult to our national intelligence and individual dignity. Lost in the rush to succumb and adjust to a systematic country-wide suicide, is a fear that confronting the overwhelming reality of invasion will paint one a leper in polite society. What an obscene notion - defending self interest, traditional heritage and sovereign survival.

Risk Assessment and the Precautionary Principle

Is it preferable to allow science to assess the risk of new technology or is it better to adopt the precautionary principle? In a society that exalts all forms of technology as scientific progress, the notion of questioning new methods or discoveries as actual improvements, is often depicted as heresy. One area where this friction has taken root is in agriculture. From the outset, the subject of food; while often ignored, is an essential commodity that even the most intense idealist must consume. When passionate environmentalists seek to become purists, repeatedly humans suffer.

How can intelligent citizens support George W Bush?

Once upon a time, in the land of Oz, people conceived of leaders who respected their fellow citizens and governed with grace and justice. Wicked tyrants were the foe and greedy power seekers were enemies of the people. Government served the public and the state was limited in scope and function. A fairy tale, just a dream or reality? At the core of any political discussion is the purpose of the system that rules. Whatever one’s ideology, the common thread that bonds all constituents is that someone else governs in their name. Abstract purists envision a stateless realm within the confines of their own mind.

Who’s Burden is the Dark Continent?

At the turn of the twentieth century, Rudyard Kipling wanted the colonial powers to bear a burden that only advanced societies could endure. Take up the White Man's burden was the theme in his poem that summoned up an entire age of guilt and greed. When the verse first appeared in McClure's Magazine, the lines of empire were long drawn by Western Nations as they sliced and diced colonies under the chant that they were protectorates of the mother country. Cited by Jim Zwick, ed., Anti-Imperialism in the United States, 1898-1935 from a letter to the editor of The Nation, "Mr. Kipling's Call to America", Feb. 7, 1899, written by Alfred Webb - offers the following assessment:

NAFTA verdict undeniable

In a quintessential cover story in the American Conservative - Death of Manufacturing - Pat Buchanan exposes the fraud of Free Trade. This is a must read, especially for those Libertarians who cling to the abstract notion that intellectual possibilities are viable and practical in the real world. Notwithstanding their fantasies, self interest and national economic independence is the supreme basis for economic policy that benefits citizens. Those who strive to generate profit upon unholy alliances are at best, befuddled accessories or worse case, greedy traitors.

Hail Exclusion - Divisive is Normal

The multiculturalists would have you swallow that self interest is divisive if it conflicts with their frenzied agenda. At the core of this fallacy is that discord is worse than freedom. These quacks would have you believe that Populist Nationalism is the most dangerous of human aspirations. In a seminal speech to the Third Annual Conference on Authentic History and the First Amendment, Ken Schmidt strikes a cord that exposes the pretension of the hypocrites. He cites the historian and social thinker Christopher Lasch and what he calls a “Revolt of the Elites.” “The people that rule over us—the big business managerial elite, the media barons, the Zionists and the Manhattan intelligencia—adhere to values that are strongly at variance with those of working and middle-class whites.”

A Mob For All Seasons

So Uday and Qusay Hussein rest on a slab with a name tag attached to their toe. Using a tank killer and TOW missile to finish the task, no surprise that the photos are not flattering to the deceased. As one looks upon the images, what exactly does one see? Contention over their authenticity, may become sport for a parlor game, but the facts remain - the Hussein boys are finally irrelevant. Definitely, it won’t be long before those pictures will undergo a creative metamorphosis into your favorite and hated foe. Can’t you already see a bloated Bill and Hill look alike in the garb of the wicked tyrants?

A Rush of Ditto’s

Are you a fan of EIB? Do you still think that the cutting edge is heard coast to coast, on the syndicated phenomenon, that boasts - the greatest radio show on earth! Rush Limbaugh went national during the last days of the Ronald Reagan administration. Those who recall that bold and fresh attitude will remember that Rush was radical. Reminiscent of the early work of Larry King out of Miami, the broadcast hit at the under belly of the ruling class. One even heard carping of George H Bush back in those days, when the principles of the Gipper began to fade. As the Clinton’s took power, the show swung into high gear. And as Rush’s web site states: “The rest is history”.

The Black Magic of Donald Rumsfeld

The Poetry of D.H. Rumsfeld may not rival that of D.H. Lawrence, but it certainly surpasses the occult skills of Aleister Crowley. What is known about Rumsfeld is not good. But what is projected by Rumsfeld is perceived as reassuring with a pinch of solace. The vision of a preempted strike does not make a ‘Donald of Arabia’, nor would that other Lawrence indulge with comfort the DHR legacy. The Full Spectrum Dominance  course of Rumsfeld conceals the purpose for - FSD - superiority over the entire range of battlefield threats.

Supreme Court Malady

The culture war is real and is a struggle to the death. Civilization hangs by a thread, that has just been frayed - by a judicial majority - bent on the eradication of all traditional morality. By striking down a ban on gay sex and invalidating a Texas law against "deviate sexual intercourse with another individual of the same sex", it has validated the road to perdition. If any diehards had any doubts about the sorry state of the law in the new American millennium, all qualms should be put to rest. Total depravity is the supreme law of the land.

Cloning the future for same sex marriages!

Do you ever sense that it can’t get any worse? Every so often seemingly unrelated events can put the entire quandary into a distinct perspective. Presently, the combination of Canada’s decision that would change its law to allow homosexual marriage and the American Medical Association endorsement of cloning for research purposes, hits a new low. Just what kind of society is humanity willing to accept?

The high cost of claiming: CHOSEN

Cheating the mark is a fundamental function of charlatans, scoundrels and scamps. But when the scalawag turns into a political devil, the whole world is swindled. It’s hurtful to be hoodwinked out of your money, but the harm from being deceived by frauds, who claim to be CHOSEN, is forbidding. The sinister deception that has parts of the planet sympathetic towards a phony and habitual fabricator of historic invention, has the world at the brink of destruction. The impending holocaust will engulf all of mankind in a clash between egoistic zealots and a globe that chiefly craves these extremist would just go calmly into the night. The hubris that claims to be “The CHOSEN”, is the focal lie that fuels the flames of this eternal scam. Forgiving souls who buy into this hideous declaration of devout deceiving, are the ultimate enablers.

Which Diva Gets The Last Dance?

A federal prosecutor is the lowest slug on the food chain. The embodiment of unbridled arrogance, unrestrained capricious egotism and vicious retribution; those who aspire to play God become the government’s attorney. Note there is no pretense of representing “The People”, they are the agents for the STATE. Condensed retorts that they are the defenders for the law, fall from the simple weight of their fallacy. Arbitrary and selective prosecution is the only consistent conduct that this gang of assassins employ against those who become political targets.

The Loyal Opposition

The favorite American sport is politics. Even when the maddening crowd says they hate it, they can’t get enough. Reality TV seems pale in comparison, full contact football looks tame in contrast and GPS bombs test safe, as the duds and blanks of representative democracy unfold for all to see. The ravage caused from the process not only spreads collateral damage, it inflict terminal carnage. The notion that a two party system produces opposing options stretches the limits of hallucination. Nevertheless, people cling to the illusion of choice when the reality is unanimity.

Iatrogenic Diseased Health

The overriding theme from the DemocRAT clones running against the Fearless Leader, wants to charm you into accepting their formula for eradicating all your ailments. Much of the next presidential campaign will discuss, compare and knock each plan, while the central issue remains silent. Is the condition of national health enhanced with the centralization of mandated medicine? If you are one among the majority that view government as a benefactor, you will be looking for the most you can get out of the system.

The Criminal Bar Association

Consider the undeniable systemic problem with the law. Attorney’s police themselves and are not accountable to the public. That’s exactly how lawyers want it. The concept of a Bar Association, comprised of members from the genuine oldest profession, having the dubious distinction of being “officers of the court”, is the height of arrogance. In its most bare and simplistic constitution, to become part of the pretender class, one must swear ultimate allegiance to the State and the Brotherhood. In order to sit at the table, the solicitor agrees to protect his own kind for the privilege of compromising the holy of holies - The Law. If you think this is a harsh assessment, just read the Bill of Rights and explain and defend why the predominance of current case law and court decisions so evidently violates the clear meaning of the U.S. Constitution?

When States Build Empires

If you want to known how life functions in New York State, just follow the money. For the common man, it’s business as usual. The Big Apple has worms and Upstate folks are supposed to grow another crop of insect free fruit. Another broken record best chronicled in the style of the New York Daily News: "It is painful, but it's the right thing to do," Mayor Bloomberg said in Albany, flanked by state Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno (R-Rensselaer) and Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver (D-Manhattan).

Hessian Regiment from the Hussein Campaign

Just as the greater the lie, the bigger the theft - the easier it becomes. Now that the troops are coming home, the spoils of war can be integrated into the big picture. Back in the 1950’s a favorite program was named “The Big Picture” which presented the significance of a particular news event. How those events fit into the cultural viewpoint was seen as a valid approach for understanding the issues of the day. Hollywood took the slant that entertainment, even in a war comedy flick, could spoof a basic human flaw - greed.

The White Rabbit becomes Rabid

Go ask Alice! Well, how much does she really know? If you think this gal plays with Easter Bunnies, you got the wrong broad . . . In today’s world the fond nostalgia of innocence in the 60’s is relegated to those who lived during the “beat goes on” generation. Most self-righteous detractors of that era, want to carp that the youth were hippies and were nothing more than narcissists, consumed with self indulgence. Better that they would have been yuppies, and tax payers . . . follow the rules and salute the flag. How many times have you heard this crowd of defamers, mock and condemn what they neither understand nor cherish?

Our Dear “Beloved Leaders”

Once there was a grand land where individuals achieved great things. They fought for their freedom and formed a representative government, based upon a constitution. Their leaders were noble men and understood the lessons of the past. A system called “federalism” was designed that shared authority and restricted amassing too much power in any particular political office. A unique distribution of duties and responsibilities were defined and all remaining functions and ruling charges were retained by separate and independent states that made up this fine experiment for union. What an admirable attempt to protect the human dignity of citizens and to invent an environment for personal prosperity and that gracious concept - the pursuit of happiness . . .

News you can distrust

That old prudent man standard, once implied that one should be a skeptic towards all news reporting. As events proved that measure wanting, the evolution to outright cynicism became the most valid gauge. Today, developments in reporting surpass even that criterion. For now, the only sensible rule, is total disbelief in ALL reported news. We have entered an age of designer reality, based upon a message that best fits the emotional needs of the viewer and the desired objectives of the journalist. The role of the editor is to protect the agenda of the publisher, as the publisher serves the interests of his benefactors.

How to Rehabilitate the UN

It has been established that the UN is not only irrelevant but terminal; however, that won’t prevent an attempt to resurrect it from the dead. Kofi A.

The absence of any recognizable leadership is evident for all the world to see. So what is the alternative?

George W Bush - el bandido

This is a time to be brutally honest. Within a week, all likelihood is that the ‘War of Iraqi Conquest’ will begin in earnest. At that point, George W Bush would cross the Rubicon - the political river of no return. The last vestige of the Republic will be cast aside, never to flow again, from the streams of a free people. We know you can impeach a president, but is it possible to remove one from office? As it stands today, the answer is all too stark. The commander and chief heads legions not to protect and serve, but to control and conquer. And no Court or Senate will challenge the force of Caesar.
