Midget Minds and Lost Cojones

BATR


Americans are a hollow shell of their proud history. Their financial controllers have enslaved the few remaining hard working producers of actual wealth. Those who still cling to a feeble dream of getting ahead rationalize their captivity as the price needed to pay for success. It seems that only government parasites, leeching off the system, remain sheltered from the imminent outlook of a total melt down. The elites have implemented their master plan. All that is left is to gather up the remaining assets of the indebted public through a proscribed national bankruptcy.

Commonly understood in another era were historic facts that this type of tyranny was called fascism. The list of lost liberties is endless. The level of compliance and acquiescence to repression has never been higher. Social behavior requires homage to a "PC’ culture in order to be part of the post-industrial world of global regimentation. The common error that most people make is to conclude that fascism is a right wing ideology. The reality is that left-right distinctions are meaningless, when the key components of a totalitarian society share the same universal traits.

America has succumbed to the same authoritarian merger of corporatist unity with government that characterizes the fascist definition. Seldom acknowledged is that the Marxist underpinning of communist regimes also shares this same dictatorial mastery over the economy. There is not a dimes worth of difference, among all these evil governments or the "so called" distinctions between the Democratic and Republican Parties in the U.S.

Dr. Lawrence Britt, a political scientist, studied the fascist regimes of Hitler, Mussolini, Franco, Suharto, and Pinochet. Read the full definition of 14 things in common these regimes have as identifying characteristics of fascism. Then compare this list to the current conditions at home.

Traits of a Fascist State Reality of Fascism in America
1. Powerful and continuing nationalism The State maintains that nationalism is the same as patriotism
2. Disdain for recognition of human rights Selective targeting of individual civil rights of real patriots is common practice
3. Identification of enemies, scapegoat causes Unremitting and contrived terrorist myths become central to maintaining an insecure society
4. Supremacy of the military Militarization of a mercenary foreign legion becomes a way of life
5. Rampant Sexism Destroying the natural distinction between genders becomes the ultimate sexist offense
6. Controlled mass media PysOps in the mass media defines reality for mind-controlled cretins
7. Obsession with national security Empire building as a substitute for true national security weakens the nation
8. Religion and government are intertwined Churches denuded of doctrine and moral gospel
9. Corporate power is protected Wall Street institutional interests are sheltered from actual competition and immune from serious regulation
10. Labor power is suppressed Labors demeaned, union leadership dub membership and public service employees beholden to the State
11. Disdain for intellectuals and the arts Traditional values excluded from academia and humanities
12. Obsession with crime and punishment Prison incarceration is a growth endeavor against government violations
13. Rampant cronyism and corruption Normalize systemic “gangster politics” by paying off comrades and destroying resistors
14. Fraudulent elections Never a real choice between the two clone heads of the same statist party

In America, the government is the tool of the banksters and the corporatists.
 

By any objective standard, the loss of individual freedoms is undeniable. What accounts for the passive sedation of the American public? Tom DeWeese of the American Policy Center "makes a solid argument that there is a deliberate conspiracy on the part of the Department of Education and the National Education Association (NEA) to dumb-down American education. Along the way he blasts No Child Left Behind (NCLB) as failing to address the core problems." He illustrates that the dumbing down is because American Education Fails Because it Isn’t Education.
Twenty years ago the US ranked FIRST in the world in high school diplomas and college degrees. Now our education system ranks 18th out of 24 industrialized nations in effectiveness. We are already second in the world in money spent per student, yet American students grow more illiterate by the year.


The video UNA21 - US Education Goal: Dumb & Dumber adds valuable insight into the scope and extent of student exploitation, tutored by idiots in government schools to accept world governance. A second YouTube, STUPIDITY reflects the nature of the popular culture, their crude use of language and the inability of people to function as an individual steeped in inherent autonomy

The contrast with our heritage can hardly be starker.
Civility is a term not known to the self-satisfaction society. Immediate gratification confuses self-interest with tangent amusement. Cogent dissonant dismisses any information that might interrupt the hedonist lifestyle that drives doomed mortals into higher levels of depravity.
dumbpublic.jpg
Natural intelligence is under assault from pharmacological attacks upon entire classes of ethnic tribes and social groups. The "so called" educated middle class often falls below the innate aptitude of foreign underprivileged survivors. 


Advanced degree prodigies frequently distinguish themselves with patterns of asinine conduct that conflicts with basic tenants of common sense. Elevated elites exist on a plane of their own design that enhanced their privilege out of a false claim of their entitled meritocracy.

Eradicated from conscious memory is traditional scholarship that created the miracle of western civilization. Elimination of all traces of natural law, individual responsibility and moral precepts, is necessary, for the godless world of globalism, to achieve their total rule. Extermination of the last remnants of sane souls, who accept the gift of life from their Creator, is the ultimate end.

Fascism is a utilitarian instrument to dominate useful idiots. Slated for early extinction is anyone who has little worthwhile function to exploit. America faces a profound existential crisis. With so many stupid people, how can the nation continue and deserve our respect and loyalty? If citizens demand greater tiers of oppressive containment under the guise of social dependency and transitory security, how can meaningful restoration of a legitimate Republic ever occur?
cojones.jpg

Americans also suffer from an acute case of missing bollocks. The home of the brave is now the concentration camp of cowardly eunuchs. The high point of our history was the American Revolution. 

The downward slide started as soon as the ink dried on the questionable ratification of the U.S. Constitution. Foolish citizens dismiss this construct because they are ignorant of the real history and nature of the central government. Wasting so much energy on attempts to restore a false constitutional basis for government, when in fact, inevitable abuses of the federal tyranny were guaranteed by the creation of national state supremacy, is irrational.
 

The Bill of Rights is trashed everyday by the federal stooges that serve the financial plutocrats. The oligarchy was once a national rule. Today it has become a global empire of suffocation.
 

When a society is too dense to grasp the truth of your enslavement, and does not have the backbone to rebel, your fate is relegated to the dustbins of history. When Leon Trotsky coined this phrase, he was talking about pitiful isolated individuals. Another Russia sums up the primary moral question. Fyodor Dostoevsky in his masterpiece, The Brothers Karamazov has Ivan Karamazov express an accurate capsule description of the belief, If God does not exist, everything is permitted. Katharena Eiermann observes that Jean Paul Sartre has said that all of French Existentialism is to be found in Ivan Karamazov's contention that if there is no God, everything is permitted.

Unfortunately, Americans too often adopt the relativism of situation ethics as a rationalization for immoral behavior. When government employs the practices of totalitarian collectivism, most citizens ignore the abuses and provide tacit submission to the fascist despotism that rules their lives. As long as America, reject the supremacy of God and rejects His moral laws, the most hideous elements of wickedness will continue to enslave the nation.
Small minds accept any mode of conduct. Brave individuals have the guts to confront certain absurdity.
 

Sadly, far too few courageous citizens exist. Do you have the will to topple this corrupt regime? If you snub the supposition that the central government essentially serves the interests of the global elites and is eliminating your natural rights, you just admitted to your own idiocy. Moreover, if you know that the federal tyranny deserves quenching and you refuse to act accordingly, you have lost your cojones. Just what kind of a person are you?

The Absurd US Stance on Israel's Nukes: A Video Sampling of Denial

Environmentalists Against War
May 25, 2011
Sam Husseini / Washington Stakeout

The United States is supposed to be a country in which everyone is free to speak their mind without fear or equivocation. All the more reason to find it odd that some of the most powerful people in Washington are thrown into silence or stammering panics whenever they are asked a simple question: "Do you know that Israel has nuclear weapons?" Watch the video to see how our leaders react and respond.
http://original.antiwar.com/shusseini/2011/05/23/the-absurd-us-stance-on-israels-nukes/



(May 24, 2011) -- On Tuesday, at a rare joint session of Congress for a foreign leader, members of Congress will clap hands raw for Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister of Israel -- a nation many members of Congress are incapable of speaking simple truths about.

The upshot of the professional wrestling "fight" between Obama and Netanyahu the last several days is that they both want the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to be decided by "negotiations between the parties." These "negotiations" are between a nuclear armed Goliath Israel and largely defenseless Palestinians. It's like "negotiations" between the Corleone family and a bandleader -- except we're not even supposed to notice the Corleone family comes to the table with huge guns drawn.

Sunday at AIPAC Obama spoke of the "existential fear of Israelis when a modern dictator seeks nuclear weapons and threatens to wipe Israel off the face of the map -- face of the Earth." He spoke of "our commitment to our shared security in our determination to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons."

Obama said to applause from the attendees at the pro-Israel group: "So let me be absolutely clear -- we remain committed to preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. … Its illicit nuclear program is just one challenge that Iran poses." Of course, Netanyahu is ever more vociferous in his accusations regarding Iran's alleged nuclear weapons program.

But at his first news conference at the White House in February 2009, Obama was asked by Helen Thomas if he knew of any country in the Middle East that has nuclear weapons. Obama replied that he didn't want to "speculate."

It's simply not a credible position to have.

Obama is accusing Iran of having an "illicit nuclear program" (which seems to exaggerate the National Intelligence Estimate findings) while refusing to acknowledge the Israeli nuclear weapons arsenal. Mordechai Vanunu definitively exposed Israel's nuclear weapons program in 1986 and was tossed into prison for 18 years, most of it in solitary confinement, for doing so.

The Federation of American Scientists estimates that Israel has between 70 and 400 nuclear weapons. These weapons pose a real -- not a potential or an imagined -- threat to millions upon millions of people in and beyond the region. So do nuclear weapons held by other countries, but at least they are acknowledged.

But the US and Israeli governments have maintained a stance of "deliberate nuclear ambiguity" since Richard Nixon and Golda Meir made a deal on the matter and stopped nuclear inspections in Israel in 1970.

The US government's stance is particularly absurd given that the main pretext for invading Iraq was false claims about that country's alleged possession of WMDs.

As part of Washington Stakeout, where I ask tough questions of politicians as they leave the Sunday morning chat shows, I've asked a host of politicians about Israel's nuclear arsenal. Though they've varied somewhat in their answers, none has actually been straightforward.

John Negroponte, who when I questioned him was director of national intelligence, outright refused to engage on the issue: "I don't want to get into a discussion about Israel's nuclear powers." While they were in office, Cheney and Rice wouldn't stop for Stakeout questions at all.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) told me that "there is no comparison between Israel and Iran, and those who would draw a comparison ignore the fact that Israel is our ally," virtually defining what hypocrisy is. Similarly, I asked John Edwards, "Doesn't Israel have nuclear weapons?" and he responded by voicing his concern about "Iran having a nuclear weapon" and the proliferation that would allegedly cause: "odds are high that if Iran goes nuclear that the Saudis will go nuclear, the Egyptians will go nuclear, the Jordanians may go nuclear" -- all without acknowledging that Israel has nuclear weapons.

Which raises a central question: If Iran is going nuclear, why would that be? One possible answer is because Israel has nuclear weapons. Contrary to conventional wisdom, that seems to have been the case with Iraq. Imad Khadduri, who worked on the Iraq nuclear weapons program beginning in 1981 -- after Israel bombed an Iraqi nuclear reactor -- told me that the Israeli attack actually drove him and others to work on a weapons program: "I worked on the pre-1981 nuclear program and I was certain it would not be used for military purposes. But after the 1981 bombing, we were so angry that we were ready to work on a military program." (Before the 2003 invasion of Iraq, Khadduri argued that, contrary to what the Bush administration was claiming, the Iraqi nuclear weapons program had been dismantled.)

Another reason that regimes might get weapons of mass destruction is self-preservation. That is certainly a lesson one could draw looking at Iraq and Libya over the last 10 years: Both disarmed and both were attacked. Viewing US policy in that light, it would seem rather suicidal for the Iranian government to not develop nuclear weapons. Of course, we don't know that they are, but if anything, militarized US policy seems to be pushing them in that direction.

Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.), who is vice-chair of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on the Middle East and South Asia, paused when I asked him if he knew that Israel had nuclear weapons, then said, "I'm aware that Israel is our most cherished allies."

I followed up: "Do you think it increases or decreases US credibility around the world when US government officials can't even acknowledge that Israel has a massive nuclear arsenal?"

Pence stuck to his line: "The American people support Israel. I call Israel our most cherished allies." He was utterly incapable of engaging on the issue.

Somewhat similarly, former ambassador Martin Indyk replied: "What does that got to do with it, sir?"

Newt Gingrich, initially when asked if he knew Israel had nuclear weapons, said "of course," but then backtracked, saying it was a "guess" since the Israeli nuclear weapons program could be a "Potemkin village." A friend retorted that perhaps Gingrich would be inclined to question the reality of the moon landings. Carl Levin (D-Mich.), when I questioned him, was chair of the House Armed Services Committee. He similarly said he "thought" Israel had nuclear weapons, but didn't "know," because "I'm not the government."

I questioned Russ Feingold in 2010, shortly before he lost his seat, and he initially said, "I'm not free to comment on that." I asked: "Why can you not say that Israel is a nuclear power, Senator?" Feingold replied: "I basically think it is, but I'm not somebody who is privy to all the details on that." But Feingold was on the Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee at the time of this exchange. In any case, the necessary information on Israel's nuclear weapons is public.

This year, I questioned John Kerry: "Do you know that Israel has a nuclear weapons program?"

Kerry: "Sure. Everybody -- it's common knowledge and commonly understood."

Question: "Why won't the administration acknowledge that?"

Kerry: "I don't know what the administration policy is on that."

It was good to get a "sure," but it's rather remarkable that Kerry states he doesn't know what the administration policy is given that he is chair of the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee.

Former Minnesota governor -- and current presidential aspirant -- Tim Pawlenty: "It's a determination for Israel."  If it's been established as a matter of fact, it speaks for itself." Thomas Pickering, former US ambassador to the UN: "It's a decision for Israel to make."

In April 2007, I asked former president Jimmy Carter at the National Press Club about why no administration would acknowledge Israel's nuclear weapons. He responded: "When I was president, I did not comment on Israel's nuclear arsenal. But it's generally known throughout the diplomatic and scientific world that Israel does have [a] substantial arsenal." It's [Israel's nuclear power] well known anyway to every diplomat, scientist involved in nuclear affairs, it doesn't make it incumbent or important that the president of the United States announces that another nation does have nuclear arsenal..."I don't think it's up to the US government, president or officials to announce that another country does indeed have or have not nuclear arsenal if they themselves don't acknowledge it. I don't think it's helpful to do that, ...but it's not harmful either because everybody knows it." (The Press Trust of India, April 5, 2007).

Finally, in 2008 Carter acknowledged the obvious truth somewhat more forthrightly: "The US has more than 12,000 nuclear weapons; the Soviet Union [sic] has about the same; Great Britain and France have several hundred, and Israel has 150 or more." Perhaps, when he is years out of office, Obama will tell the truth about things like Israel's nukes.

In 2006, in what were described as "slips," Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and then-incoming Secretary of Defense Robert Gates referred to Israel's nuclear arsenal.

As with anticipated moves at getting the Palestinian issue seriously before the United Nations in September of this year (a move Obama is denouncing), in 2009, the US, Canada, and other Western nations attacked and tried to block a vote by the International Atomic Energy Agency calling on Israel to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. After 18 years of trying, the measure was finally passed.

In his widely heralded 2009 speech in Cairo, Obama emphasized the need for truth. It's long past time to stop the games, get real about the Mideast, and have a fact-based discussion. A good place to start is an acknowledgment of the threatening elephant in the room that is Israel's nuclear weapons arsenal.

The Spider’s Web

Poetry for Palestine


The Spider’s Web


The Spider’s Web

The ADL and other Jewish Zionist organizations continue to agitate the public with the scarecrow of anti-Semitism attempting to suppress truth about the illegality, brutality and barbarity of the zionist project. They continue to moan about the life-old crime of anti-Semitism that has plagued the planet and caused “unique” and “immeasurable suffering” for the Jews throughout history. They continue to whine about the alleged increase of anti-Semitism, as unexplained unwarranted and inherent phenomenon within the goyim, who are uncontrollably driven by some kind of primitive, bizarre and blind hatred of the Jews, absolutely for no particular reason!
 
Simultaneously, they continue to use their power of influence, manipulating the players (with the carrot and stick trick) in the media, in the political sphere and in the world of academia to muffle even the faintest voices that attempts to be a witness of truth.
 
They pressure organizations to cancel events, even those who are as mild as troops dancing, artists singing, children painting or performers playing.
They force universities to close down courses, and professors to lose their jobs even when all they do is to provide knowledge, accredited by reputable sources and researchers, and under the right to freedom of information.
 
They coerce websites to delete videos or be taken to court, politicians to publicly apologize or lose their seats, news reporters to favourably inscribe or lose their careers.
 
They persist to suppress testimonies of professionals, doctors, and witnesses of all walks of life, intimidate judges and threaten, kill and celebrate the murder of human right activists.
 
They demand and put pressure on governments to even change International Law and jurisdiction for the sole reason of protecting Jewish-Zionist war criminals who committed crimes against humanity.
 
This double act of playing the ultimate perpetual helpless victim who suffers endlessly of the world’s anti-Semitism on the one hand while acting with supreme power and impunity as a well organized group with high degree of influence and authority, on the other, only exposes a degree of hypocrisy and deception of unprecedented proportions.
 
The Jewish zionists don’t understand that they cannot have it both way, whimper as the ultimate victim and behave like the decisive authority; their game is just too embarrassingly and shamelessly obvious.
 
Furthermore, it cannot escape sharp-eyed analysts that the massive over-representation of Jewish Zionists in sensitive key position in politics, media, and the world of financeis in absolute contradiction with ethos of objectivity, fair representation and equal opportunity.One finds him self compelled to ask some questions:
 
How did the Jewish Zionists reach a degree of organized control that exceeds the diverse norms of human proclivity?
Moreover, how on earth did they manage to deceive most of the world to achieve and maintain this oxymoron: superlative manipulative power along with the swindle of ultimate victimhood?
 
Furthermore, for the love of humanity, where is the ADL outcry against the most aggressive, most violent form of racism and supremacy pervasive throughout their own communities, namely, the concept of chosen-ness, exclusivity, supremacy and Talmudic attitude towards the Non-Jews?
 
How did they manage to conceal this bizarre supremacist ideology with its rotten core which thrives in various degrees amongst Jewish communities, which also animates and feeds the most primitive feelings of vanity, arrogance, selfishness and sense of entitlement to leadership and to ownership of that which is not theirs?
 
The Jewish Zionists systematically muffle the debate about the Zionist’s crimes, they throw labels and accusations at any one who dares to question the ideological concept of Chosen-ness which animates their narcissistic sense of superiority.The Jewish Zionists systematically throw sand in the eyes of those who notice that things don’t quite add up, those who ask questions about fundamental issues related to the disproportionate over-representation and powerful lobbies.
In their usual hasbaric method of “perception management” and “damage control”; articles are published, alleged “scientific research” is conducted, and discussions are broadcasted; all pretending to “discover” what they call the “secret” of the “unique Jewish success”
 
Taking into consideration these basic facts:
1- Jews are not a race, they do not share the same ethnicity nor do they share unified genes. They do not possess a unique Jewish DNA
2- Comparative studies of IQ between races are meaningless, it is disregarded by most respected scientists as pseudo science.
3- Jews do not even share one culture, British Jews have little in common with Ethiopian Jews and German Jews have little in common with Yemeni Jews, etc.
4-Jews do not speak the same language nor do they share the same history. They lived and still live separated geographically and historically.
5- Like Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and other faiths, Judaism is religion and nothing else.

With the above in mind, it becomes evident that claims of “uniqueness of Jewish talent” and  “superior Jewish intelligence” boasted as an explanation of their achievement and influence, and control, and a justification to exploit others. These claims are ludicrous and nothing but a myth fit only to appear in an illusory pre-historical book by pro-hysterical fanatics.
 
Under the false pretence that they’re “one race” with “one culture” and “one history”, created for a “special mission”, and equipped with “special soul” and “supernatural power” to accomplish leadershipof mankind, the Jewish zionists managed to deceive a huge segment of the world population, including non-Zionist Jews.It appears that they still prefer to inhabit a divided world based on racial superiority. It is this fascination with racist fantasies that lures them to chase the mirage of their distinction, in vain, trying to “prove” their “superiority”, “scientifically”.

Yet, the truth is simple and not difficult to comprehend, in view of social patterns of behavior that are marked by exclusion and favoritism. Some would describe it tribal-like, or club-like, or fraternity-like, in essence always chose to privilege whomever qualifies for membership, and that is by birth, i.e. irrespective of circumstances and qualifications or lack thereof:

Hence, when a group in its dealings and interactions with others behaves like a club or a caste of which only those privileged by birth can become members, when children of that group are brought up with a sense of severe trauma hammered in by mythical or real stories of perpetual persecution, when they grow up imagining that the whole world hates them for no other reason except that they are Jews, when members are indoctrinated with false beliefs of distinction, dissimilarity, exceptionality and even superiority, and when the group’s aims are exclusively focused at protecting and fulfilling the interests of members of that club at the cost of all non-members, the outcome will be a well coordinated, well motivated, and well organized network, hence the “secret” of “Jewish success” that every one seeks to discover, becomes easy to understand, it actually lies in one word:  

NETWORKING

Even the half-Jewsih are not forgotten from being part of the Web

That highly organized global network functions with the process of “Unnatural Selection”, that is structured to mentor future-leaders, to amalgamate and augment Jewish-zionist leadership. It bases its preference on “favouritism”, not on merit, aptitude, suitability, ability or fitness for the job, but rather on training and promoting those who are part of the network, who are programmed from a very young age to aspire and strive for leadership position.

This network has exceedingly overgrown; its Web is literally strangling the planet; with an ideology bordering on paranoid lunacy, an exclusionist culture that views the other with suspicion, hate and vengefulness and with holding the key to Pandora’s Box; the survival not only of mankind, but of all biological life as we know it, is threatened with extinction.

If we want our world to have a chance of survival, that Web needs to be dismantled. If not stopped in time, biocide, not just genocide, will be the new description of their next war of aggression.
That Web will not be dismantled by the hands of those who build it, too much at stake for them to lose, too many privileges that cannot be sacrificed, not even to save the world.

Despite what is said above, I am fully aware that not all Jews are taking part in that Web, but I am also aware that a significant majority of Jews do take part, and this actively.
Indeed, according to polls:
95% of US Jews support Israel as a Jewish state
90% of British Jews believe that Israel is the ‘ancestral homeland’ of the Jewish people

Which basically means that the vast majority of world Jewry consider it their privilege to rob other people of their homes and homeland, they see themselves entitled to claim other people’s property, and to commit whatever crimes necessary in order to secure their own interests. The vast majority of world Jewry support the theft of Palestine, the ethnic cleansing, dispossessing and slow genocide of its people for the sake of their “tribe”.

Therefore, I am calling on Jews who are not part of that network, those who refuse to be partners in crime, those who are really sincere about their stance with truth and justice; those who are willing to see the truth, hear the truth and speak the truth.

The challenge laying ahead of you is threefold:
Exposing, opposing, detaching yourself from the  criminal entity which calls it self the “Jewish state”. This “Jewish state” makes the claim to be the “safe haven for the Jewish people”, while at the same time it denies the reality that it was created by terrorist conquest, and embeds itself on stolen land of another people after having dispossessed and dispersed them, and perpetuate itself through ever worsening crimes.

Exposing, opposing and fighting the supremacist ideology of truly racist and exclusionary nature, that thrives within Jewish circles and networks. This ideology carries a sociopathic core concept of “chosen-ness” which sets them apart (and above) from the rest of humanity, and locks them permanently in mental and psychological ghettos.

Exposing, opposing and challenging the excessive and ill-used power and influence acquired by corruption and manipulation instead of merit. This undeserved accumulation of power and capital by this Judeo-zionist networks in the fields of finance, media and policy making, has been realized at the expense of the majority of communities amongst which they live. The conflict of interest of an over-represented minority concentrating power and capital, versus an under-represented majority, is blatantly obvious.

Are you up for the challenge?

The Existing Disorder

Center For A Stateless Society

Photobucket
by David D'Amato

A couple weeks ago in The Guardian, Ellie Mae O’Hagan very thoughtfully bewailed the mainstream media’s treatment of anarchists. “The problem with the contemporary media narrative on protest,” she said, “is that, in its refusal to understand the nuances of anarchism, it is using the term as a euphemism for ‘dangerous’, ‘violent’ or ‘bad’.”

O’Hagan couldn’t be more right, and while she has no trouble recognizing that anarchism is a “broad-based political philosophy,” she points out that the media at large is intent on using it as a proxy for vandalism and destruction. The smearing of anarchism, she argues, is approaching the level of McCarthyism, with spurious, “Orwellian charges” becoming more and more frequent in the United Kingdom and elsewhere.

The anti-anarchist, police state phenomena highlighted by O’Hagan cry out for anarchists to instruct society in our creed, not to explain it away in a way that compromises its radical message, but to convey what it really is. And that, as O’Hagan correctly notes, is a tradition of thought that “accommodates people of significantly contrasting viewpoints.” Arbitrary violence and destruction of property are about as much (or rather as little) a part of anarchism as they are of any other political persuasion.

Governments enjoy playing up “propaganda of the deed” as necessarily a feature of anarchism; it allows them to turn around and use the phrase “known anarchist” in the headlines when they throw people in a cage on trumped up charges. Random, warrantless police raids are far more palatable to a public that has been suckled on the lie that anarchists are thoughtless agents of chaos.

Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, the first to explicitly style himself an anarchist, did not choose the word out of a desire to promote chaos or disorder. Indeed, Proudhon identified himself as “a firm friend of order” and saw anarchy as expressing the “highest limit of liberty and order to which humanity can attain.” Through the history of anarchist thought, its proponents have taken great care to emphasize the differences between the kind of order offered by the state and that by free and voluntary society.

The former, they argued, was no order at all, but a war executed by a small elite against its own subjects, an abrogation of the natural, social order that would obtain in the state’s absence. Quite contrary to championing disorder or some kind of lawless mayhem, Proudhon imagined the coercive apparatuses of the state “dissolved” within a true market, with “political functions … reduced to industrial functions.”

In a very real way, it is the state that substitutes the chaotic and the violent for what is otherwise innate in the value-for-value trades between sovereign people. Government intrusions against, for example, a farm in the French village of Tarnac and a peaceful community action group in London demonstrate all too clearly that simply concerns about public safety is not the whole story.

In fact, it has been increasingly obvious that public safety is a mere subterfuge used to mask the state’s blatant attempts to discredit anything that might expose it for the band of criminals that it is. Since anarchism opposes hierarchy, authority and an economic system grounded in coercive privilege, it is eminently understandable that the state would want to bring its advocates into disrepute.

Against the rubric of senseless violence, however, anarchist couldn’t hope to approach the carnage rendered by the state. So when anarchists or other political dissidents are taken in for things like “suspicion of conspiracy to cause a public nuisance,” a healthy dose of skepticism is in order.

If anarchists succeeded in replacing the state with voluntary, consensual institutions, it wouldn’t mean a perfect, crimeless utopia. What would surface, though, would be a society that could avail itself of all the latent potential now stamped out by the rigid, decaying force of statism; it would be a society without sanctioned coercion, without the ancient idea, absurd on its face, that society’s worst, most powerful criminals are to be revered and respected.

That the state is a moral abomination is easy enough to show and to understand. What is more difficult is communicating that message in a world rigged so that people can’t understand, so that disinformation becomes truth. That’s the state’s game, but, as they say, truth will out.

Geithner, You Ignorant Slut

True Patriot Media


This guy doesn't know when to quit:
NEW YORK (AP) -- Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said Tuesday that if Republicans insist on passage of their budget plan as a condition for approving an increase in the nation's borrowing limit, they will be responsible for the consequences.
Speaking to a New York audience, Geithner said that Republicans would bear responsibility for the first debt default in the nation's history if they insist they will not vote for an increase in the $14.3 billion borrowing limit unless they win approval of a House Republican budget plan.
Your administration has known full-well what the debt limit has been for a very long time.  So has CONgress.  Both bodies were well aware that raising the limit is discretionary.

You seem to believe that playing the "Armageddon" card is something that can be done with impunity, mostly because your predecessor Hanky-Panky Paulson did so and Bernanke was a party to that.
The fact of the matter is that you seem to think that there's no limit to the nation's credit card.  You're wrong.

Yes, I know, the bond market hasn't cared (yet) about all this idiocy.  Then again it didn't care over in Greece either, right up until it did.  Same with Iceland, Ireland and Portugal. 

In fact, it seems to work the same way with most personal bankruptcies too.  People think they can push things a bit further, a bit more, they get another credit card, they play the balance-transfer rollover game, they feel the pressure and make some sort of maneuver and then breathe easier.

All this works for a little while, right up until it doesn't in dramatic fashion.  And then, once again, we hear "nobody could have seen it coming."
Well Timmy, lots of people saw this coming.  I did.  Hundreds of others who write on economics did.  The only people who "couldn't see it coming" are those who are so arrogant as to think they can play Global Thermonuclear Financial Armageddon whenever their social spending and military adventure bonanza is threatened and who have their heads firmly buried up the bankster's asses.
Let's cut the crap: That's exactly what this has been.

The jackbooted games are completely out of control.  The Federal Government has doubled in size since 2000.  Have we gotten twice as much service from the government?  No, we've gotten serviced instead.  And 2000 was a bad time in that regard as the government was dramatically overblown and overbloated at that point in time.

That was the last time I ran a mid-sized business and had to deal with that crap.  I will never do it again, so long as that "mass" is amassed against me.  And it will forever be, until the government shrinks.

The Feral Government is like a vampire that has gotten to weigh 500lbs.  It loves to suck the blood out of the nation and consume it.  Government employees like the TSA folks think that virtually rape-searching people with X-rays is "cool" and "for our safety" - including sticking their hands down a baby's diaper.  What sort of sick bastard engages in that sort of act?  The fact is that it was never about safety - it's entirely about shielding airlines from the risk of failing to secure their own aircraft and terminal facilities.  We can't have certain "favored" businesses risk failure when they blow it; rather, we have to make sure the boot of the government presses ever further on the people's necks.

The vampire needs to be put on a severe diet.  Yeah, it will scream and holler, like every fat man does when told that he can't gorge at McDonalds' any more.  But just like the 400lb man that needs two seatbelt extensions if the government doesn't cut this crap out the nation is going to have a heart attack and die.

I say chain the 500lb vapire to its chair and cut its rations by 50%.  When it screams, and it will, wear earmuffs and slam the door shut.  In short, Geithner, here's my response to your threats: Pound sand.

We're well-beyond the time where we should be neutering the government, not enabling it.  Emasculating the Federal Government with a nice, sharp knife, feeding its former pair of testes to the closest shark would do more to help this nation's economy than anything else that could be undertaken. 

Ronald Reagan used to talk about "rugged individualism."  He was right in that regard, although he sure didn't believe it when it came to certain personal choices.  He thought it was great if you wanted to drink a beer (boosts the economy) but smoking a doobie was good for 10 years in the slammer.  Like most statists he was a hypocrite when it came to that true "rugged individualism" and to add to his hypocrisy the "deal" he made on cutting taxes and slashing the size of government had no verification on the second half - which didn't happen.  Instead he sat back, patted himself on the head and then watched the vampiric Feral Government pack on another 50lbs.

Well, Timmy, it's time to go cold turkey.  You have enough tax revenue to avoid a default.  You can pay principal and interest, easily, with the tax money that comes in.  You then get to choose - do you send Granny her check (after you blew her contributions over the last 30 years in a puerile display of idiocy) or do you continue to fund the magical oil "reserves" that we "defend" with our $750 billion a year in defense expenditures rather than having a cogent and defensible energy policy?

Choices, choices.  They're tough. 

But default, in the legal sense, is in fact a choice, as the government's income does exceed it's actual lawfully mandated debt service. 

Remember Timmy, Social Security and Medicare are not "obligations" - they're entitlements.  Your very agency has argued this, successfully I might add, in court.  The Federal Reserve does not count those "obligations" as actual debts as a consequence.

In short Turbo, your "Armageddon Card" is frayed around the edges and doesn't work any more.  Multiple attempts at a balanced Federal Budget have been circumvented and fraudulently avoided.  It is time to pull the rug out from under this game and throw the board on the floor; balancing the budget by refusing to raise the debt ceiling is the right way to do it, and now is the time.

Sharia Law Is Here.

Cop Block


 It’s never been politically correct to criticize religions, but when a religion is just so utterly stupid, it is worthy of regular mention.

The religion I have in mind is unbelievably backwards and naive when viewed with objectivity. It demands rigid obedience, and failure to comply with the demands of the religious enforcers can result in immediate death. The religion forbids depiction of revered figures in certain forms of imagery in the mass media. Refusal to abide by these restrictions may result in violence or prison. Religious zealous claim unfavorable depiction of the revered figures is offensive and dangerous. When offenders are disproportionately punished with violence or prison for the peaceful act of broadcasting the revered figures in the mass media in an unfavorable light, members of the religion defend such punishments as being permitted by the law.

One fundamentalist member of this religion candidly and shamelessly asserted that if his daughter were to drink or wear inappropriate clothing, any form of violent punishment received from religious leaders is deserved. High-ranking members of this religion readily enforce dress codes with beatings, while low-level adherents condone such violence as necessary because the law must be enforced, and law-breakers knew they were acting illegally when they engaged in such behavior.

When more rational people inevitably disagree with the harsh and unreasonable dictates of this religion, the adherents turn to more violence. They not only cheer on the regular violence used by the higher-ranking members of the religion, they themselves threaten violence upon people who dare promote peace, or retaliate against wrongful authority. They have said things like, “I don’t see a lady, I see a stupid whore…I hope homless [sic] person robs and rapes you!!!” in referring to a woman who dared to stand up against oppressive authority by refusing to submit to tyrannical demands, and portraying the religious figures negatively in the media.

Writers who dare criticize the violent members of the religion, and refuse “salvation” regularly receive comments such as, “I hope [you] get raped and tortured one day then they will see what they think of [the revered figures] when they save their stupid faggot asses and it’s a shame…” Another zealot, furious at the disrespect against his religion has said, “Meet me in a dark alley and we will see who smells fear. Keep running your mouth…”

Members of this religion display an unflinching and blind devotion to the tenets of their religion, even in the face of factual evidence to the contrary, but will insist that people who disagree with them are ignorant and should be killed. For instance, one zealot stated, “The stubbornness, ignorance and retardation…is un-fucking-believable…Do the world a favor and go die in the corner.”

Certain hallowed members of the religion also engage in the killing of completely innocent people from time to time. The innocent people may include children, disabled people or others who were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Instead of condemning the killing of innocents, the adherents of this religion instead claim such killings are “justifiable,” sometimes because “under the circumstances” it was excusable or understandable. Other times, zealots claim such killings are an unfortunate but necessary part of law and society.

This religion is not Islam. The religion is the Church of the Police States of America. These commenters, wishing death and rape upon non-violent dissenters are not Muslim extremists, but freedom-loving Americans (allegedly) who frequent Cop Block with nasty messages.

Filming police, a peaceful act, is repeatedly met with violence and jail (here and here).  Frustrated at being portrayed as the monsters they are, some police respond either with violence or arrest, and despite the needlessly harsh punishment meted out to peaceful videographers, many Americans continue to insist either police should have special protection because they are of a higher order of human beings, or that the law permits such punishment – end of discussion.

How is police violence and institutional support for unjust punishment in response to the innocent act of filming police any different from rioting because of an offensive Mohammad cartoon?

Despite the rhetoric about freedom and police protecting rights, the United States, due partly to the insane and horrific War on Drugs, has the highest incarceration rate in the world. The United States also has one of the worst police states in the world, ranking above only North Korea, China, Belarus, and Russia (and only 2/100ths of a point above Russia). Despite evidence police do not in fact have a very difficult job, and do not face a great deal of violence, Americans continue to insist police deserve special protections, and more needs to be done to punish those who dare challenge authority. Despite evidence that police commit a disproportionate number of sexual assaults (see here and here), people recklessly defend police on the grounds that it is only a matter of a “few bad apples” and that police bring safety to society (if a few bitches gotta be raped to maintain safety, so be it). Against all reason and good sense, Americans continue to insist police violence is civility and peace, while they threaten violence against those who actually call for true civility and peace.

The religious zealot mentioned above who defended beatings of women who drink and wear inappropriate clothing was a police officer, not a Muslim cleric. He had viewed a video of police brutality against a young woman and essentially stated she deserved a beating because she was drinking and wearing low pants.

Indeed, American police are not unfamiliar with beating people who wear clothing deemed “inappropriate.” Another young man who had left school for the day, was accosted and beaten by police for wearing his pants too low. As this is reminiscent of what is perceived to be the case under Sharia law, it is instructive to compare these two accounts to two similar occurrences in Saudi Arabia, wherein religious police questioned women on the streets regarding the propriety of their behavior.

One woman responded by shooting at the police vehicle until they drove off, while another woman attacked the religious police. Both women came out of the situation physically unharmed. In America, retaliation by either of the victims most likely would have been met with deadly force. Again, despite the completely inhumane brutality doled out to these American offenders of morality, some Americans mindlessly retort that if they had only obeyed orders, they would not have been beaten.

How is, “if you had only pulled your pants up, you wouldn’t have had the shit beat out of you” different from “If she had only covered her ankle, she wouldn’t have had the shit beat out of her”?

When police kill completely innocent people, such as Donald Sargent, who was standing in the privacy of his own home, behind the closed doors of his own bedroom, minding his own business, or John Williams, who was peacefully walking down the street, or Aiyana Jones, a sleeping 7-year-old child,  police escape with impunity because people absurdly contend such killings are reasonable under the circumstances.

How is letting a murderer escape punishment after killing innocent people, and declaring through the courts that it was “justifiable” any better than saying that suicide bombings are sometimes “necessary” or “understandable”?

Even as American law regularly yields logically identical results as Sharia law, an embarrassing number of Americans believe the government garbage about freedom, order and safety. Evidence to the contrary flies in their faces daily, but they drone on like brain-dead zombies, incapable of the lowest level of self-reflection or critical thought. People adhere rigidly to the absurd tenets of blind obedience to authority, and “the law is the law” even while they rabidly criticize and demonize the exact same thing going on somewhere else in the world.

How does that work, exactly? So if the law is the law, and orders must be obeyed – and that’s why it’s perfectly fine to waste the lives of millions of non-violent drug offenders, and beat people wearing inappropriate clothing – then shouldn’t we really be applauding the stoning of women per Sharia law? It would seem like they are doing an excellent job of serving the law, if that is indeed what the law requires.  Why are foreign police who stone or jail women for failing to abide by dress codes monsters and animals, while American police who kill or jail innocent people are heroes?

Even if America is relatively more free, in that such occurrences happen less, it’s pretty pathetic that this is what the great United States of America has come to. It’s all come down to this – the USA has become a rotting cesspool of corruption that supports incarcerating a huge portion of its population, killing innocent people, raping women and arbitrary arrest – but at least it’s not the worse, more oppressive rotting cesspool of corruption “over there” somewhere (which is inhabited by brown people).

Holding the World Hostage

Poetry For Palestine

Posted on by nahida the Exiled Palestinian


 
 
The world has almost become desensitized to hearing horrible news; there isn’t a day that passes without being bombarded with horrific reports; of some killed in a street in Pakistan, more are blown up in a village in Iraq, a drone dropped over a wedding in Afghanistan, a child shot in the back in Palestine, a bomb exploded in Libya, a “new and improved” version of an Israeli threat to Iran…etc…etc.
However, some types of news might still have some sort of an impact; the type that catches the eye causing it to flood with tears, the type that grabs the soul by the throat causing it to choke, the type that contains within an oxymoron; the kernels of extinction and the seeds of annihilation, the type that feels like throbbing, suffocating pain running through every cell of the body, the type that smells of burnt death, radiates with isotopes and gamma-rays and looks like dark smoky mushroom-cloud.

For example:
On 28 September 2010, the “Israeli” Newspaper Haaretz reported that a virus targeted a large nuclear facility in Iran
On 16 January 2011, Haaretz reported that Israel tested the destructive Stuxnet worm in Dimona nuclear plant
On 20 February 2011, Haaretz reported a further attack on ‘Iran nuclear facilities in Natanz, Bushehr sites
On 27 April 2011, the Iranian Government computers were attacked yet again by the highly specialized aggressive computer virus, Stuxnet, a new generation of software programs that can fail entire production lines.

The German cyber-security expert Ralph Langner, has been working to unravel the mystery of the Stuxnet virus. In March this year, Langner told his audience that the Stuxnet worm could be used as a “weapon of mass destruction against targets in the West”

In his speech, Langner warned of “the plot behind Stuxnet” calling its mode of operation “creepy.”
Langner called the programming of this virus a “rocket science”. He elaborates:

“It’s way above everything that we have ever seen before”…. The people behind it were “very professional, they knew all the bits and bytes… They probably even knew the shoe size of the operator” he added.

“The virus was designed to work stealthily” Langner added. It was meant to take over the uranium-enrichment cascades at Iran’s plant “slowly and creepily” and “to drive maintenance engineers crazy.”

“When we started our research on Stuxnet six months ago, it was completely unknown what the purpose of this thing was,” he said. “We started to work on this around the clock because I thought, well, we don’t know what the target is, it could be, let’s say for example, a U.S. power plant or a chemical plant in Germany. So we better find out what the target is soon.”

Langner continued to warn of the risks posed by Stuxnet; the virus could be used to fool the operators and to neutralize the security system causing the power plants to blow:

“The idea here is not only to fool the operators in the control room. It actually is much more dangerous and aggressive. The idea here is to circumvent a digital safety system…. when they are compromised, then real bad things can happen.

Your plant can blow up and and neither your operators nor your safety system will notice it. That’s scary. But it gets worse – and this is very important, what I am going to say. Think about this: this attack is generic. It doesn’t have anything to do with specifics with centrifuges, with uranium enrichment. So it would work as well, for example in a power plant or in an automobile factory. It is generic. And as an attacker you don’t have to deliver this payload by a USB stick, as we saw it in the case of Stuxnet. You could also use conventional worm technology for spreading. Just spread it as wide as possible. And if you do that, what you end up with is a cyberweapon of mass destruction.”

“That’s the consequence that we have to face,” he said, as he showed a map that marked Western countries with green colour. “So unfortunately, the biggest number of targets for such attacks are not in the Middle East. They are in the United States, in Europe and in Japan. So all the green areas, these are your target-rich environments. We have to face the consquences and we better start to prepare right now.” he added


At the end of the lecture he was asked if he thought Israel was behind the attack. His response was:
“My opinion is that the Mossad is involved, but that the leading force is not Israel, so that… the leading force behind that is the cyber superpower. There is only one, and that is the United States. Fortunately… fortunately… Because otherwise, our problems would even be bigger.

Langner, who only few months ago had named an unspecific “hacker underground” as the possible threat; at the end of his presentation, he appeared as if he was avoiding -to solely and directly- implicate the the most likely culprit, namely, “Israel”.

He seemed to arguably play down the “Israeli” role behind this threatening danger as he hinted that “Israel” is ONLY PART of the danger rather than it -with all its known genocidal record, supremacist ideology and repeated threats- being the MAIN DANGER and the major concern for the entire planet.

Ever since the catastrophic rape of Palestine and the violent inception of the “Jewish state”, by the sheer brutality and destruction that accompanied its illegitimate creation, and by its cruel and parasitic mode of “survival” to this day, many observers speculate that if the “Jewish state” were to face an existential threat, it would act as its biblical suicidal hero, Samson; which means that it would not hesitate to take the whole world down with it

The warning of the dangers of Computer worm and “Israel’s veiled threat of Mass Destruction of the entire world is also reiterated in this article
Also, for more updated news about Stuxnet

Unfortunately, the story of the Stuxnet virus does not end there; on Oct. 5, 2010, several months before Japan’s nuclear disaster, it was reported that the Stuxnet cyber-worm designed to attack off-line servers via USB memory sticks was found in Japan

Furthermore, it was confirmed recently, by Haaretz Newspaper that in fact an Israeli company had installed the security system at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power

Beautiful… isn’t it! “Israeli” company had “secured” the security system at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power…!
What is the best way to protect your sheep? The logic of these days appears to be; of course you entrust them to the wolf.

Knowing the history of this terrorist state that was created by terror, that continues to exists by methods of terror, yet it somehow poses itself as an oasis of democracy, a beacon of morality, and a founder of civilization, that it fools and seduces the world into appointing her as the world’s security guard is simply beyond belief.

Analysts have many reasons not to trust such an entity, and in fact some are already suggesting that Japan’s catastrophe might be directly linked to the Stuxnet virus and that Japan’s Nuclear plant was destroyed by Israeli Security Company Magna
Don’t you wish it was only Palestine?!

By its violent acts of hostility and aggression against many sovereign countries, hunting people around the globe with impunity, behaving like a mad dog and acting like a “master” bully, the “Jewish state” systematically continues to terrorise the world and all its inhabitants.

Coercing individuals, organizations, and nation-states … Intimidating entire populations with annihilation… Threatening whole civilizations with destruction……. The “Jewish state” is holding the world hostage… and for what price, what ransom?

The ransom we pay is dear, it is the slaughter of all concepts of justice, equality, compassion, civilization and peaceful coexistence, basically everything developed and cherished by humanity through millennia of progress and evolution.
Should the world give up, bow down and pay the ransom?
Or should we seriously ask the daring questions:

Who will stand up to this monster?
Who will speak out against those mass-genocidal psychopaths?
Who will prevent those ideological-creeps from destroying what is left of our beautiful planet?
Who will dare to act and stop the mad Samsonists before its too late?
