U.S. Chief Bureaucrat John Roberts has been censoring Sen. Rand Paul’s questions for House managers in the Senate impeachment trial of The Donald. For questioning, the senators submit written questions to the Chief Bureaucrat who presides over the trial. Anyway, given what a swamp creature Roberts is, and what a turncoat Roberts was in his changing his vote toward approval of ObamaCare, that he would censor questions in favor of sweeping government criminality under the rug is no big surprise.
So Paul tweeted his Roberts-censored question thus: “Are you aware that House intelligence committee staffer Shawn Misko had a close relationship with Eric Ciaramella while at the National Security Council together, and are you aware and how do you respond to reports that Ciaramella and Misko may have worked together to plot impeaching the President before there were formal house impeachment proceedings.”
Paul further clarified in the tweets: “My question is not about a “whistleblower” as I have no independent information on his identity. My question is about the actions of known Obama partisans within the NSC and House staff and how they are reported to have conspired before impeachment proceedings had even begun.”
Some people are saying that outing a whistleblower could compromise his job security or safety. But the alleged “whislteblower” in this case who started this whole fiasco later last year is not a whistleblower. He did not expose “waste, fraud or abuse” in his working behind the scenes with Adam Schiff, the day after the controversial Trump-Ukraine phone call, to get this impeachment going. In fact, the alleged “whistleblower” began in his crusade against Trump soon after Trump was inaugurated.
According to WikiSpooks, Eric Ciaramella was a CIA apparatchik who became a White House staffer thanks to former Trump National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, and had been a “Susan Rice protégé.” (Hmm, that sounds good. I sure hope he had no involvement in Rice’s unmasking the names of Trump flunkies who were under illegal surveillance! Doh!) More info from Heavy.com.
The “whistleblower” who reported second-hand or third-hand hearsay information regarding that Trump-Ukraine phone call to get this impeachment fiasco going, was a Trump-hater, one of many. But I’m sure you can take any phone conversation and blow any statement out of proportion, such as in the specific phone call the bureaucrats chose to blow out of proportion for impeachment.
And I don’t think that Trump knew in July of 2019 that Joe Biden would be his Democrat opponent a year later in 2020. So it seems to me that to suggest that Trump was thinking of Biden in that phone call as his “political rival” has been an invalid argument, one that has been obediently repeated by the lapdogs of the mainstream media. Not that I’m particularly defending Trump, mind you. He is just another criminal bureaucrat, in my view.
So the “whislteblower” wasn’t really exposing “fraud, waste, or abuse” or incompetence or criminality in government, in the same way that Bradley Manning, now known as Chelsea Manning, did in 2010, or Edward Snowden, or Thomas Drake or John Kiriakou have done.
No, the “whistleblower” was taking second hand and hearsay information as propaganda and using it in cahoots with swamp creatures in Congress to impeach a President they just don’t like. So, really the “whistleblower” isn’t actually a whistleblower, or even just a “leaker,” but a propagandist.
And at the beginning of the House impeachment inquiry even further propaganda oozed from Adam Schiff in his reading a made-up version of the transcript of the Trump-Ukraine phone call, making Trump sound like a gangster. Now THAT’s propaganda! Quite different from the actual transcript of the phone call. (So, did the CIA flunky “whistleblower” cahoot with Schiff in the changing of that transcript? Just askin’.)
And that is what swamp creatures such as those in the CIA are good at, propaganda and psy-ops. The swamp propagandists of the CIA and the rest of the national security state in Warshington including the FBI, NSA, the Pentacon, and DOJ didn’t like Trump’s “drain the swamp” rhetoric during the campaign, and they have been obsessed with getting him out of there. Literally obsessed. I have never seen this kind of pathological obsession with one single political figure on the part of national security apparatchiks, politicians and their news media government groupies.
Now, I can see why a CIA apparatchik and his fellow national security swampers don’t want to impeach Trump for his war crimes of authorizing drone strikes that kill mainly innocent civilians overseas, or for his ordering assassinations of foreigners without due process. Because as we know the goons and spooks of the national security apparatus approve of all those immoral interventions and criminal acts. But what is wrong with Democrats (who used to be known as “liberals”), when they couldn’t care less about Trump’s actual crimes, and instead make stuff up, such as this whole impeachment farce and Russiagate, as a way to try to get rid of him?
So, one good solution to all this, besides getting rid of Trump (and Pence et al.), is just abolishing the CIA, FBI, NSA, as well as the DHS, TSA, ICE and all the other totalitarian agencies in Warshington, and ending all tax-funded foreign aid, and closing down all those foreign U.S. military bases overseas and bringing all the U.S. military back to the U.S. (and even better, putting them in the private sector where they can actually be productive).
For the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s birthday, here is his great speech on why he was opposed to the Vietnam War, given in April, 1967 at Riverside Church in New York. Antiwar.com has the full transcript.
Justina Pelletier is now 21 years old. She was the teenager who suffered from Mitochondrial Disease, but during an unfortunate time when her regular doctor was unavailable she was then taken to a different hospital, Boston Children’s, in which the “doctors” decided that her problems were not medical, but psychological. The hospital falsely accused the Pelletiers of “medical child abuse” and took custody away from the parents and gave it to the dreaded Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF).
The Pelletiers are now suing Boston Children’s Hospital and the trial finally begins this week. The “doctors” crimes against the then-teen were 7 years ago now. The family is seeking “unspecified monetary damages,” according to Boston 25. In my view, they should have insisted that the doctors and hospital staff involved be criminally charged with kidnapping, false accusation, child abuse, and endangerment, among probably other charges. They are indeed criminals.
Here is a video of the Pelletiers being interviewed on a local Connecticut TV station last Summer with an update at that time.
Speaking of the incompetent and corrupt Massachusetts Department of Children and Families, there is an alarming case involving both that agency and area medical facilities.
This is yet another case of child abduction, pure and simple, and worse. You see, child snatchers and torture are rampant amongst various state “child protective” (sic) agencies.
15-year-old Justina Pelletier was being treated by doctors at Tufts Medical Center for Mitochondrial Disease, with initial symptoms mainly involving her colon. She was transferred a year ago to Boston Children’s Hospital against her parents’ wishes. The situation went from bad to worse, as the doctors at Children’s Hospital accused Justina’s parents, Lou and Linda Pelletier, of “child medical abuse,” of “over-medicalizing” the child. Hospital officials than called in the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF) who seized custody of the child away from the Pelletiers.
According to Lou Pelletier, who spoke to Glenn Beck (videos below) recently, doctors had initially performed exploratory colon surgery for possible “blockage.” The surgeon found “20 inches of cartilage wrapped around her colon and appendix.”
It appears that both Justina and her sister have congenital Mitochondrial Disease, but the sister’s issues haven’t been as severe as Justina’s.
After being moved to Boston Children’s Hospital Justina’s condition worsened and she is now in a wheelchair. When she was brought into Boston Children’s Hospital, doctors there had her see psychologists, one of whom asked her why she allowed the previous doctors to insert the tube in her colon.
With the very severe problems she was having, Justina needed her digestive system “flushed” but the Children’s Hospital doctors refused to do that, insisting that her problems were “psychological.” “It’s all in your head,” basically is what they told her and her parents. It isn’t Mitochondrial Disease that she has, but “Somatoform Disorder.”
So what we have here in crazy Amerika is this. Medical establishment zombies either diagnose a normal child who acts like a child as “abnormal,” or “hyperactive” and all those terms, and then they drug up those kids which causes further problems including actual medical, physical side effects. OR, they take a kid like Justina that they KNEW had a REAL medical condition as diagnosed by earlier doctors — a condition that was actually seen to exist via exploratory surgery — and they tell her that her problems are psychological.
So, instead of allowing the “flushing” treatment to continue, these doctors forced Justina to instead sit on the toilet for hours, according to her father, Lou Pelletier. Mr. Pelletier stated that the term the doctors used for how they were treating her was “behavior modification.”
You see, there are some doctors who are objective, and they take all the information of a particular case into account and act accordingly in the best interests of the patient.
And then there are doctors who believe in an ideology. In this case, the ideology is “behavior modification.” When doctors — or other kinds of providers — have an ideology, they are not objective, they are instead fixated on their ideology. In this case, as I see it, the doctors receive a new patient, and, regardless of what her symptoms are, the doctors attempt to get the patient to fit into the particular structure their ideology calls for. But it doesn’t fit in with reality, or with what the patient is actually experiencing. Then, it becomes a cult, in my opinion.
In fact, that these doctors and hospital administrators seized custody away from the Pelletiers and gave that illicitly-obtained custody over to the state’s Department of Children and Families, is relevant to this “behavior modification” ideological mistreatment of Justina. This is because the hospital’s research agenda involves children who are a “ward of the state.” According to the Blaze, Boston Children’s Hospital’s own Clinical Investigation Policy and Procedure Manuel states that “Children who are Wards of the state may be included in research that presents minimal risk…or greater than minimal risk with a prospect of direct benefit.” The Blaze notes that there is no assurance as to whether or not Justina is being used in research.
More recently, however, Justina was transferred from Boston Children’s Hospital to the Wayside Youth and Family Support Network facility in Framingham, Massachusetts. Wayside is a place for teens with behavioral problems and many come from “broken homes.” According to this local news article, “There are no doors to the rooms for the kids who live there, just curtains. Doors would allow students to barricade themselves in their rooms, said Dennis Miles, the campus residential director.”
You see, collectivists who may in fact be using others in experimentation don’t believe in the concept of privacy, as well as common sense. Actually, collectivists in general don’t believe in privacy, hence ObamaCare, NSA, TSA, FBI, etc.
The article also notes that “Pushbars for some of the doors have a 15-second delay to prevent students from running through or out of the school.
“Many doors need a security card to open, while others leading outside trigger an alarm.”
Hmmm. Now it’s beginning to sound more like a “correctional institute.” Is there a fence outside with barbed wires facing in?
Is there a Nurse Ratched there?
Mr. Pelletier describes Justina’s treatment by all these doctors as “torture.” He describes his daughter as now in a wheelchair, paralyzed below the waist, almost no muscle control above the waist, with her hairline and gumline receding, and says she seems to be malnourished.
So much for the psychologists’ “behavior modification” ideology.
Here is a video of Justina’s father, Lou Pelletier, talking to Glenn Beck and describing this ordeal being perpetrated against their family by the vultures of the DCF and the medical establishment quacks:
Another aspect of this case which is just as troubling is that the DCF judge imposed a gag order on this case. The Pelletiers are not allowed to talk to the media about what’s being done to their child. However, since later last year, Mr. Pelletier has been talking to media, including Glenn Beck.
Now, what authority does any judge have to order the Pelletiers not to speak out about their ordeal? Some sort of Fascist Manifesto, perhaps?
Worse, because of his talking about what the vicious state and the psychopathic medical establishment have been inflicting on them, Mr. Pelletier has now been charged with “contempt of court.”
Here is the video of Pelletier telling Glenn Beck about the contempt charge:
In my view, these medical establishment people are not just medically incompetent, but criminally dangerous. If there were any justice at all, criminal charges of child endangerment, kidnapping and hostage taking, and physical abuse need to be pressed against those who were actually responsible for refusing to allow the Pelletiers to take Justina out of the hospital last year, and such charges pressed against those who then seized custody away from the Pelletiers. (The judge also needs to be impeached and charged with violating the Pelletiers’ First Amendment-protected rights of free speech.)
If ObamaCare continues as the “law of the land,” we can just multiply by many times all these fiascoes and crimes perpetrated by the State-medical establishment cult.
O’Meara compares to the the Salem witch trials the Children’s Hospital psychiatrists who recklessly ignored Justina’s medical diagnosis and treatment in favor of a subjective, non-scientifically verifiable psychiatric diagnosis and treatment.
The article highlights the DCF and psychiatrists’ obsessive zeal in continuing Justina’s psychiatric treatment despite their causing her condition to dangerously deteriorate. The writer points out some of the discrepancies between the DCF social workers’ court testimony and their prior discussions with Justina’s original medical doctor, and discrepancies between the Children’s Hospital psychiatrists guidelines for Justina’s case and those same doctors’ statements published in earlier research papers:
For example, the affidavit accused the Pelletiers of “obstructing her care,” and also reported that Boston Children’s Hospital does “not know where the parents picked up the current diagnosis and they are hard to disprove.”
The social worker failed to include in the affidavit that she had spoken directly to Tufts’ Dr. Korson, who had explained Justina’s mitochondrial diagnosis in great detail. The Juvenile Court judge ruled in favor of Boston Children’s Hospital and Justina became a ward of the state, severely restricting the Pelletiers’ access to their daughter.
In fact, the February 2013 “guidelines” drafted by Boston Children’s Hospital in regard to Justina’s case included: “set strict limitations on medical discussions with the family and eliminate interaction with providers outside our hospital” such as Dr. Korson. Unbelievably, the family and the treating physician were to be excluded from any conversation about the health and well-being of the 15-year-old captive.
The “guidelines” are a direct contradiction to what the psychiatric “team” muttered in published psychiatric papers. For instance, Dr. Simona Bujoreanu, Assistant in Psychology, and Dr. David DeMaso, psychiatrist-in-chief, both of Boston Children’s Hospital, co-authored an article entitled “Enhancing Working Relationship between Parents and Surgeons.”
In describing the treatment modality, DeMaso and Bujoreanu explain:
“The working relationship between parents and surgeons is fundamental in providing excellent health care to children and adolescents. The breakdown of this working relationship has a significant potential for detrimental effects on individual well-being and adverse systemic outcomes….”
So not only do these so-called medical practitioners forcibly take over the case of a child who is being treated for Mitochondrial Disease, which had indeed been medically and scientifically verified through exploratory surgery, so the “doctors” can implement their ideology of behavior modification. But these schnooks are apparently doing what they can to cover up their criminally negligent treatment of an innocent child.
I’m beginning to believe that not only is this “behavior modification” some sort of indoctrinated ideology being practiced by these “doctors,” but with their outright zeal in this case it gives the feeling of bordering on a kind of religious zealotry.
Apparently Justina’s father, Lou Pelletier is ready to file a “writ of habeas corpus in Massachusetts Supreme Court for ‘wrongful imprisonment’,” according to ABC News. And who can blame him?
The Pelletiers really need to press a multitude of criminal charges against the Children’s Hospital doctors as well as the DCF social workers who have been complicit in causing Justina’s condition to deteriorate as it has.
The aforementioned Citizens Commission on Human Rights article concludes:
Additionally, under the United Nation’s 2013 Report by the Special Rapporteur on Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, the Pelletiers certainly could claim Justina’s human rights have been violated: “Medical care that causes severe suffering for no justifiable reason can be considered cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, and if there is State involvement and specific intent, it is torture.”
Surely, when a child’s life is at stake, even the governing bodies overseeing those institutions that claim to represent the best interests of children, would demand proof of the medical diagnosis. Or is it possible that Massachusetts has so easily forgotten the dreadful prosecutions of Salem, born from rumor, speculation and belief?
I have written quite a few times about Justina Pelletier the teenager who suffers from Mitochondrial Disease but who was taken off her treatment by doctors more loyal to their “behavior modification” ideology than to their oath to “Do no harm.” I mentioned her case most recently in this article.
As far as I know, Justina and her family are suing Boston Children’s hospital, and the lawsuit is still pending.
But I found this article from January from a Mitochondrial Disease News website, about parents who face false charges of “medical child abuse” by “doctors” and hospitals. The article includes references to Justina Pelletier, whose parents were falsely charged with such. The article states, “But in recent years, the U.S. mitochondrial disease community has been hit with hundreds of other false accusations of medical child abuse. MaryBeth Hollinger of MitoAction says the problem is getting worse.”
In many cases, “doctors” aren’t able to immediately find a cause for a patient’s symptoms, and already jump to the conclusion that “it’s all in her head,” i.e. the cause is psychological, to them. And many times, the doctors rush to insist that the young patient be kept in their psychiatric ward as an in-patient, to do God-knows-what, but especially to give them those goddamn psychiatric drugs. The article doesn’t say that, but that’s been my conclusion. So in my view, these damn doctors are obsessed with drugging up their patients. It’s like a religion to them, it seems to me. And also, in many cases the Children’s Hospitals or other hospitals are government-funded research hospitals, as was the case with Justina Pelletier. The doctors use the patient as a guinea pig to give these horrible drugs to and to experiment on.
The article points out, “Hollinger spoke of a general lack of awareness, noting that ‘most doctors were never taught anything about mitochondrial disease.’ Because the disease involves energy production, it varies greatly from one person to the next.”
And the article gives good advice to parents, which I back 1,000%:
Hollinger advised parents to watch what they say around doctors and nurses, and to think twice before posting photos of their children on Facebook or Twitter.
“You have to really be careful about what you share, and how it could impact your child down the line,” she said. “I would definitely say no photos. What law enforcement does is use social media to see if you are guilty or not. It is the most important aspect of their investigation. They consider social media your crime scene. Any picture that could embarrass your child at less than 18 years old is considered abusive.”
Scott Horton of Antiwar.com has this article asking, Iraq War IV? and gives a lot of the history of U.S. government and military/CIA aggressions in the Middle East, and includes a lot of summary and analysis of events including over the past two years. He mentions the neocons and their roles in war-planning, and the evil Bush Presidents.
But, as some commenters note, he doesn’t really give much attention to Israel and its influence on U.S. foreign policy especially in Middle East.
The late Justin Raimondo, co-founder of Antiwar.com, had a 3-part series in 2012 on the roots of the Iranian “crisis,” and in Part 2, he states “It’s all about Israel.” Oh, is it, really? Do the Israelis have that much control over U.S. foreign policy? And if so, why? Raimondo also has written about the Israel angle of the 9/11 story, in this 2010 column.
The Israelis have been wanting to bomb Iran for decades, but really they have wanted the U.S. government to do it for them. Bibi RebozoBibi Nutty-Yahoo Bibi Netanyahu and other Israeli leaders have been saying for many years that Iran is an “existential threat” to Israel. Yet, as the writers at Antiwar.com have pointed out many times, there are no facts to back that up. Israel has the strongest military in that whole region, and they have a hundred or 200 nukes.
But the conservatives in America, especially the talk radio crowd, seem to believe every word of the propaganda that Nutty-Yahoo and his U.S. slobberers disseminate. And yes, they are slobbering over the Israeli leader. Just watch his speeches before Congress, in which the obedient slaves cheer on just about every sentence he utters. They act that way because they are cowards and afraid of looking like they are anti-Semites if they don’t give him a standing ovation for his every word. Yet, like them, he is a buffoonish bureaucrat, and that can be better understood by seeing this.
As I mentioned recently, much of the Israeli influence on U.S. foreign policy, besides the Israeli bureaucrats themselves, comes from the Christian Zionists, who “love Israel” and “the Jews,” because they are True Believers in the Bible and Biblical scriptures. They believe in the “End Times” and the “Rapture,” and that “the Jews” will convert to a belief in Jesus as THE Lord and Savior in order to be “saved” when the “End Times” arrive. In fact, Justin Raimondo elaborated on that very aspect of all this in this article on the Israeli “Amen Corner.” And some of the Christian Zionist Bible-thumpers are real nutsos in their wanting to make the “End Times” happen if you know what I mean. It is possible that George W. Bush, our Secretary of Belligerence Mike Pompeo, and our current vice president Mike Pence may be three of those nutsos. I hope not. But then, George W. Bush did start the 2nd war on Iraq after 9/11, a group of terrorist attacks that wouldn’t have happened had Bush’s evil father, George H.W. Bush, not started the first war on Iraq in 1991.
But the Israel angle of the obsession with Iran isn’t the only reason why U.S. bureaucrats and military have been invading, bombing, murdering and occupying in the Middle East. There are also the oil and other natural resources. But the U.S. has plenty of oil. No need to get involved in that Middle Eastern region for oil. There is also this obsession with Israel and the Middle east for “geopolitical, strategic” purposes, i.e. the compulsive need of some career government parasites to have control over not only their fellow people but over people in foreign lands. But I think that, deep down, the politicians such as U.S. Presidents just like to bomb and destroy whole parts of the world, because they are psychopaths. The Iran stuff specifically, however, is mainly all about Israel. The Biblical True Believers believe in an expanded Greater Israel, and they will do what they think they have to to get their Greater Israel.
Ron Paul explains why he doesn’t trust Trump on Iran. Because the bureaucrats and neocons in Warshington have been giving us nothing but lies in the past many years now to justify their aggressions overseas.
And David Stockman says, “the US military-industrial complex’s greed and appetite for power and pelf is so voracious that it will embrace any and all missions anywhere on the planet – no matter how stupid or futile or immoral, as per the case of 19-years in Afghanistan – that keep the budgetary loot flowing.
“Accordingly, the Washington apparatus conspires to keep the 35 Mideast bases in place and to trigger actions like last night’s insane assassination of Iran’s foremost military leader in order to reify the threat and to periodically stoke tensions and counterattacks that keep missions alive and the forces deployed.”
Well, I am sure that the military contractors (a.k.a. the “Merchants of Death”) love the profits they rake in from all the death and destruction their products cause. And of course there’s that military-news media-propaganda revolving door, with all the high-up military bureaucrats or retired bureaucrats making their appearances on MSNBC, CNN, etc.
But I think that the lunatics in the CIA have psy-opped the easily malleable Donald Trump to turn him from wanting to “end the endless wars” into being a mindless neocon robot thug suffering from short-sightedness and not able to see the guaranteed blowback that will come about by his acts of aggression in foreign lands.
The CIA wants the blowback, to ensure more U.S. military aggressions overseas, to justify the continuing existence of an agency that never should have existed in the first place, and to justify the CIA’s always expanding budgets. Secretary of State Mike Bombpeo is a former CIA director, and a former member of the “House Constitution Caucus” that long ago became the House Constitution Carcass because the members endorse all the unconstitutional U.S. military wars and aggressions.
These people are nuts. It’s an enmeshment of zealous religious fanaticism and power-mad bureaucrats. Not good. Warshington is literally insane.
And by the way, prior to these current conflicts that Trump is causing, Warshington had been inflicting sanctions on Iran, which in and of themselves are an act of war, a provocation by Obama-Trump against Iran.
Here is Congressman Ron Paul in 2012 arguing in opposition to sanctions on Iran:
And this anti-Iran crapola has been going on for decades now. When CIA goons imposed a coup on Iran in the 1950s, Operation Ajax, and then supported the prime minister’s replacement, the “Shah,” and his police state Savak, that obviously caused blowback and contributed to the radicalizing of many Iranians leading to the 1979 Iranian Revolution and the taking of American hostages in Iran.
Short-sighted CIA and other U.S. bureaucrats and “Regime Change” crusaders have resented Iran for the hostage taking ever since then, even though the U.S. bureaucrats themselves caused it. Because of their short-sightedness they could not see that the CIA’s own interventions in Iran for the 25 years previous to 1979 caused the blowback.
The same thing goes for Iraq. In 1991 the late President George H.W. Bush started a war of aggression by the U.S. military against Iraq, a country that was of NO threat to the United State. The neocon war criminal obviously could see that the Cold War was ending and there was no more threat by the U.S. government’s enemy the Soviet Union, which collapsed on its own weight. The neocons and U.S. government apparatchiks needed a new enemy to provoke and to justify higher “defense” budgets, more CIA power and control and a greater police state to keep their own fellow Americans in submission.
And that is why Bush Sr. started that war against Iraq, promoted with lies and propaganda, which included bombing and destroying civilian water and sewage treatment centers and electrical facilities, which caused the Iraqi people to have to use untreated water which led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent people. This policy of war crimes and death and destruction was continued by President Bubba Clinton who continued the sanctions and no-fly zones on Iraq which prevented the shipments of needed medical supplies and construction materials to rebuild the water and sewage treatment centers that the evil Bush regime destroyed. This all occurred during the 10 years before 9/11, by the way.
But after 3 years, Trump’s civilian death toll is in the thousands. War criminal. (But would the retards in Congress impeach Trump for that? Of course not. They are impeaching him for being nasty, for being rude and saying things they don’t like! That’s what morons we have in Congress! They are also impeaching him for wanting to “Drain the Swamp”! Which he is NOT doing, by the way. THEY and their cohorts in the bureaucracy would be drained!)
So, don’t believe anything these criminals in Warshington say, especially regarding their drooling for more wars! These wars are all based on lies. The bloodthirsty neocons and warmongers have been lying their way to war, propagandizing the people to support them. Don’t believe a word they are telling you. In fact, when the warmongers of Warshington do these things, just assume they are lying, and don’t support them.
But will the American people ever learn? I think not. People are extremely brainwashed with American Exceptionalism and all the Orwellian nonsense especially since 9/11, so I am not holding my breath. And will there be severe blowback from The Donald’s idiocy, like a cyber attack? (Is Trump getting bad advice from his CIA handlers to start a new war, because his swamp creatures want him to lose his reelection bid? Or is it possible that Trump is making bad moves now because he just doesn’t want to get reelected? Hmm.)
Actually, if there were a cyber attack, or another bombing like the Boston Marathon bombing, it would probably be the CIA causing it, as in false flag. Wouldn’t surprise me. They’re insane in Warshington. And that is what bureaucracy (.pdf) gives us.
Happy New Year, everybody. So Donald Trump decided to start the new year by going into neocon puppet mode and bombing and killing an Iranian general who was allegedly targeting and killing Americans in Iraq. But why are Americans in Iraq in the first place? is the question we must ask.
I’ll get to that a little later. I really wanted to start this with the Democrats and the people on the left. We are in an election year, and, while Republicans are bad enough, the Democrats are quite the cheaters and sore losers. They don’t like the outcome of a presidential election so they aid and abet the national security state’s narrative of Trump-Russia collusions and “hacking the election,” none of which occurred, and they have Congressional investigations, the 2-year Mueller fishing expedition and exoneration, and when that’s not enough they use a CIA flunky in the White House and call him a “whistleblower” which he is not, and do more investigations and even a House impeachment based on a phone call, repeatedly and erroneously describing the phone call with a foreign leader as asking the foreign leader to “investigate a Trump election opponent,” which it wasn’t in any way, and then have an election year Senate trial for no good reason.
And that is just one dirty way that today’s Democrats are cheating, first with trying to overturn a legitimate election of 2016 and then by trying to tarnish the 2020 election with all the aforementioned. But not only that regarding the presidential election but with other elections as well. Democrats won’t allow requiring IDs for voting. They don’t seem to mind requiring IDs for cashing a check or flying, but not for voting. They say that’s “racist,” although minorities are just as capable of providing an ID as others are. No, the real reason is because the Democrat activists want voter fraud and cheating in elections. There are also same-day voting registration and automatic registration with license renewal, etc. Not only those things, but there’s this new scheme called “ranked-choice” voting the latest way for mainly Democrats to complicate voting enough so that the actual winner of the election loses the election.
Republicans are bad too, don’t get me wrong here. Like in the 2000 election when Al Gore won in Florida, but the Republican majority on the Supreme Court rubber-stamped a Bush-Cheney win. Hmm, it seems like that was just yesterday, for some reason. And as I have already mentioned, the two Establishment parties, Democreep and Rethuglican, are both a criminal racket and should be outlawed, in their making laws to restrict the rights of non-DemoRethug candidates to get on ballots.
And what’s the latest with the 2020 campaign? Now I thought I heard that Democrat Cory Schnooker suspended his campaign, but on the Internet it seems that he hasn’t, although he’s currently at about 2-3% on the daily tracking polls as of this morning. But it is the case that Julian Castrate has “suspended” his campaign. He couldn’t even get 2%.
So the Democrat Party is the “racist party” now? Three white men and a white lady are now in the lead, Joe Kinnock, Burning Cinders, Pete Butternutter, and Elizardbeth Warren. (I guess the Democrats don’t want another minority president again just yet after 8 years of Obama?) And no, Liawatha is not a “minority”! Others who are now out of the race also include Kamala Harris and NY Mayor Bill duh Blasio. (See how national security bureaucrats have groomed Mayor Pete for future power-grabbing, and see his road-to-communism economic plan. Yay!)
Okay, okay, I’ll stop it with the making fun of people’s names. It’s Christmas, after all. And New Year’s, etc.
Continuing here. The Republicans are bad too, and communists just like the Democrats. For instance, regionally speaking, in New England there are two liberal Republican governors, Chris Sununu of New Hampshire and Charlie Baker of Massachusetts. As I have mentioned here before, Sununu signed the bills for “transgender rights” and anti-“conversion therapy” into law, just a few weeks before his reelection in 2018. So Sununu doesn’t believe in private property rights or freedom of thought and conscience.
And now, Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker — or should I say, Charlie “Half-Baker,” especially more recently in his and his Bacon Hill cohorts’ frantic conniving and scheming to find a way to spend the state’s $1 billion budget surplus! Hmm, they have a surplus of $1 billion and so they are trying to figure out just how to spend it. Doh!
How to spend the people’s money that these bureaucrats stole from the people! Hey, here’s an unusual suggestion: why not give it back to the people! Ya think? It’s their money, and obviously it is a billion dollars more than your already bloated budget calls for, so you in the gubmint don’t need it! (Alas, that never occurs to greedy, power-mad, thieving government parasites. Oh, well.) Like Democrats and leftists, many of today’s Republicans and conservative statists live off the hard labor of the workers.
So with Republicans like these, who need communists? Speaking of communist Republicans, Laurence Vance had this recent post on “Marco Rubio: Republican Communist, Rubio wants the U.S. government to have a ‘pro-American industrial policy’.” (That’s actually more fascism than communism, although in my view they are both the same, with fascism having a slight pretense of private property which isn’t even private property because the real owners are the gubmint and its bureaucrat criminals. But I digress.)
And Charlie Half-Baker is also a fascist, in his constantly banning things, like menthol cigarettes and flavored tobacco and vaping products, banning “conversion therapy” just like NH Gov. Sununu did. Baker also signed a bill restricting opioid drug prescriptions, ordering schools to screen students for addiction risk, and concocting a state “Prescription Monitoring” database. So much for doctor-patient privacy, fascist half-baker.
And nationally, the Republicans are terrible and yes communist-like in their anti-immigration, anti-foreigner drooling. They oppose free markets and private property rights in their wanting not only bureaucratic restrictions and a police state to prevent foreigners from entering “our” country, but an actual physical government wall on the border. You can read all my elaborations on those points regarding the immigration issue in this post, if you are interested.
When it comes to freedom and free markets, in a free society everyone has the freedom to come and go as they please, and everyone has the freedom to buy and sell whatever they want and to and from anyone they want, without any bureaucrat’s authorization required, including one’s labor and employment, as long as they are peaceful, as long as they don’t violate the person or property of others.
Unfortunately, many in the anti-immigration crowd believe in this myth that the whole territory is “property” that is being violated or trespassed by “unauthorized” people, in the same way that someone breaks into someone’s home. But no, the territory as a whole is not a parcel of property, it is just a territory. There is no such common or public or U.S. citizen ownership of the territory as a whole, because that would imply that everything within the territory is commonly owned, and would negate the idea of private property.
And like many of today’s Democrats and leftists, many of today’s Republicans and conservatives are also narcissists and moral relativists. We see that in their being True Believers in the false god of American Exceptionalism, in their blind worship of the national security state and the military.
For instance, most of the “conservatives” I have heard in the past day or so have been showing support for Donald Trump’s bombing and killing of the Iranian general in Iraq. Their rationale is that the general is responsible for “killing Americans in Iraq.” But wait a minute, why are there Americans, specifically U.S. military, in Iraq? Why have they ever been there? Are there Iraqi soldiers here in the U.S.? Of course not. We would see them as … “invaders”! So, if people actually believed in the Golden Rule, they would see U.S. military in Iraq as invaders in the same way, because that’s exactly what they are.
A lot of people are also ignorant, respond emotionally to government propaganda, such as post-9/11, and cheer their government’s crimes on without question. But when someone points out that the U.S. government invaded Iraq in 1991 and occupied and bombed the Middle East prior to 9/11 and that there wouldn’t have been a 9/11 were it not for President George H.W. Bush starting that first Iraq War in 1991, then the obedient sheeple accuse one of “siding with the terrorists,” and all other expressions of their government-worship brainwashing.
That’s an example of the conservative/nationalists’ short-sightedness and inability to question or challenge their believed rulers, and their Dear Leader Donald Trump as well.
Another example regarding this Iran paranoid propaganda stuff is that I hear the national security “experts” and talk radio ditto-heads constantly referring back to the 1979 Iranian Revolution including their taking of Americans hostage, but not to times prior to that.
The conflict with Iran goes back to the 1950s, started by the CIA, which after taking down Iran’s democratically elected prime minister the CIA then supported the Shah’s police state “SAVAK.” (And it’s really all about oil, as well.) So, if the CIA didn’t engage in all that tyranny against Iranians, which reinforced a growing Islamic extremist movement, there probably wouldn’t have been a hostage taking and “Revolution.”
But many people believe in this American Exceptionalism crap, in which the U.S. government may invade and occupy and bomb other countries, but certainly not the other way around. They believe that the U.S. government has some sort of moral authority over those other countries that those other countries don’t have over the U.S. So, rejection of the Golden Rule and belief in moral relativism are the highlights of today’s “conservatives” and the Republican Party. (See Laurence Vance on the madness of the military mindset, by the way.)
So of course the bloodthirsty warmongers who believe in American Exceptionalism support more bombing in Iraq, Iran, Syria, and all points between. I think they really just love the idea of bombing foreigners, quite frankly.
And so in the new year of 2020 we will have another useless election that won’t result in any change for the better, because it is a choice between Tweedledum and Tweedledee, a choice between one criminal or criminal-wannabe and another criminal or criminal wannabe. In USSA Amerika the culture has dumbed down and we have lost the basic sense of morality and common decency, the sanctity of private property and the principles of self-ownership and non-aggression that “America” was founded on. Happy New Year!
